Here is some my old picture of my Sherlock Holmes babies but I actually don’t have them so much that I thought. I don’t have design pictures or anything like that I just.. Started to draw them… Here is like all I got ~~ For Anon who asked some ~~
Please look under the cut.
Our multi-award-winning drama #Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, returns for an eagerly awaited third series of three, 90-minute films this Christmas.
In episode one of this new series, two years after the devastating effects of The Reichenbach Fall, Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’! #SherlockLives
Benedict plays German physicist Werner Heisenberg, who was involved in the invention of the atomic bomb. In his ending monologue, he tells are heartbreaking wartime anekdote, and Benedict is electrifying in this.
Listen, it’s only three minutes, you won’t regret it…
This is so good it is eerie. Benedict is so good in expressing Heisenberg’s desperation, his conflicted feelings about his homeland at this moment in time, and of his apparent imminent death, that the scene comes vividly alive in front of my eyes. Benedict is also very good in pronouncing all the names of the German towns and areas, he is very believable as a German. And I for one, as a German, am completely flabberghasted, that there is a character in a [radio] play performed in an English-speaking country, where the WW2 German portrayed is not a one-dimensional ‘cartoon figure' / spitting image. Kudos to Benedict as well, to expose the many conflicted layers that make up a figure such as Heisenberg (and there must have been more like him). Ben shows us the humanity of Heisenberg and of the people facing the dire end of the war, asking themselves questions about their own guilt, about their own role in / contribution to this.
Re-blogging myself here, because a) I’ve just watched a series of tv documentaries about these end-of-war days, and b) I remembered thinking during the National Theatre : 50 Years Live On Stage broadcast, as good as Roger Allam during his monologue out of Copenhagen was, he didn’t move me the same way as Benedict Cumberbatch did during his monologue.
I have just listened to interviews of survivors of that time, all of them children and teen-agers during the end of World War 2, some of them survivors of the concentration camps, some of them child soldiers, some of them refugees, all of them desperate and disillusioned and derailed by that war and its end and by the ’ spoils of war ‘, and the daily fight for survival in the post-war chaos and hunger and cold.
And they sounded like Benedict did in the above audio piece. And sorry, but Roger Allam had nothing on Benedict !
I completely agree. Benedict’s “Copenhagen” was on YouTube for a while, I had it in my playlists. I will always regret that I didn’t make a copy of the audio, as it was removed a few months ago and broke my heart.
Yeah, I put it on YouTube and they deleted it. I hope that means it will be on iTunes or something one day. It’s completely amazing.
