Reasons why you should become a Benedict Cumberbatch fan.
Shhh. Do you hear that? That’s the sound of the Sherlock fandom simultaneously exploding with excitement.

Oscar nominee and dad-to-be Benedict Cumberbatch was spotted back at work shooting scenes for his BBC series this Thursday. Clad in the deerstalker hat that his onscreen character hates to wear, the British actor was all-smiles as he made his way onto the set in Gloucestershire as fans snapped photos on their phones.

Though he has a wedding to plan with fiancée Sophie Hunter, the 38-year-old recently stated that he’d much rather focus on acting than spend time picking out china patterns.

“One thing at a time,” he said when asked about his upcoming nuptials. “I’m playing Sherlock now — just about to start — so my main focus is going to be on that.”

Acting alongside co-star Martin Freeman once again, Cumberbatch will reprise his role as the titular sleuth on Sherlock in the show’s fourth season. The series is set to return in 2015 with a Christmas special, while new episodes will air in 2016.
