While Sherlock Holmes, as depicted by the new BBC miniseries 'Sherlock', is not homosexual. A few people seem to be asking another question: is Benedict Cumberbatch gay?
Wel, according to interviews he has a long term girlfriend, Olivia Poulet, also an actor, and plans for having kids. So, for those of you out there who I see Googling the question, the verdict seems to be 'not gay'. Or at least, not very gay.
