My faithful readers already know that I like him and many reasons why. If you're new or have been living on a desert island and haven't heard of Mr. C or his merits, start with my post for his birthday last year or check out his tag on my blog. Or read my favorite interview with him to-date (thank you, Caitlin Moran!)
But yes, there is no denying I'm rather fond of the man and his work. Even were I to try to deny it... the evidence suggests otherwise.

Yep, I think he's pretty amazing. "Absolutely amazing! Brilliant!"

The past few weeks have served as a fantastic set-up for his 37th year as the final 2 trailers for his 2013 films were released. This fall, 4 films in which Cumberbatch stars will be hitting the big screen. A brief rundown:
October 18 - 12 Years a Slave
October 18 - The Fifth Estate
December 13 - The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Hopefully we'll also be viewing Sherlock Season 3 before the end of the year (or at least by January 2014). He did help play a little joke on the Comic-Con panel yesterday - explaining how Sherlock survived the fall:
As busy and successful and brilliant as he is... my wish for his 37th is actually that he'd be able to take a breather and settle down. Here's hoping he finds "the right one" - and that this would become a reality:

I'll keep hoping for that. But in all his ventures and doings I do wish him luck and many happy returns!
