BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH IS a busy man these days, so he wasn’t able to be in London to accept his National Television Award for Best TV Detective.

Let’s ignore the fact that they created an entire award just for him (no offence to the other nominated detectives, but let’s be realistic here), and turn to his acceptance speech instead.

Appearing via live link from Los Angeles, he cut a dapper figure:

A dastardly cameraman soon gave him away though…


We’re expecting #Cumbercrotch to start trending any second now.


You can watch the whole thing (and hear him call Kiefer Sutherland “Jack” not once, but several times) right here:
