Benedict Cumberbatch. His name alone is enough to make us tongue-tied and swoon. The latest on-screen incarnation of Conan Doyle’s classic sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, is our idea of a perfect English gentleman. That hair, those cheekbones, his undeniable genius. Cumberbitches hold onto your socks because Benedict is reportedly getting a canine sidekick in the upcoming fourth series of Sherlock, which is possibly the best two pieces of news we’ve ever heard, all jumbled into one.
We don’t know much about the upcoming new Sherlock series, but we do know that Sherlock’s new friend is a Bloodhound called Toby, and he’s probably going to be sniffing out criminals masterminds with his tenacious tracking skills.
