Benedict: "[Holmes] was always a modern man. [He was] always into forensic science and always into developing new ideas. The idea that modern technology could be involved in that…sort of modern detective genre where you have an awful lot of procedural and scientific input - it makes sense for a modern man.
Benedict: Cumberbatch - it sounds like a fart in a bath, doesn't it? What a fluffy old name. I can never say it on a Monday morning. When I became an actor, Mum wasn't keen on me keeping it.
