If I were the [producer], I’d be frightened of the dynamic of male friendship that you’d lose,” he confesses to TVLine, “because that is obviously the bedrock of the books as well. [Now] there might be sexual tension between Joan [Holmes] and Sherlock, which is [a different dynamic than you’d have] between the two men. So, that’s a new thing to explore.”
“I wish them luck, I really do,” the actor insists. “I think it will be great. It will be a different spin on it, because obviously, theirs is modern-day as well, so it needs to be different from ours, and I think the more differences, the better, to be honest.
“I don’t see why they shouldn’t co-exist with us,” he adds, “I don’t think they’ll steal our audience. I think people who are Holmes fans who think they do a good job of it will have a treat in watching ours and the films. So I wish them good luck!”
- Benedict Cumberbatch
Remember when Lucy Liu said that Joan and Sherlock would have a different chemistry and the Pressed Sherlock Fans called her homophobic?
HMM… I WONDER IF THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN TO BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. Because here he is out and out saying that changing Watson into a woman introduces sexual tension that isn’t there when Watson is a man.
(Spoiler alert: The same thing won’t happen. Because all hail the white man who is half of the Pressed Sherlock Fan’s favorite queer baiting ship.)
Also, Benedict can fuck right off with his glorification of male-male friendships.
why did cucumberpatch even have to say the first part at all? fucking hell…
