In pictures: Benedict Cumberbatch in Hamlet

Published August 10, 2015

Some of you may not know that a little known Sherlock actor is currently making his London stage return in Hamlet at the Barbican Theatre.

Oh who are we kidding? You know. We know. The whole world knows. So you can imagine our/your/the whole world’s excitement when the official first images of Benedict Cumberbatch on stage as the Danish prince were released on Friday.

Naturally we headed straight for our social media accounts to let you in on all the Cumberbatch-related action, but for those who missed it – well, there might be one or two of you out there? – take a look at our gallery above… and then join us in thanking photographer Johan Persson for the privilege.
