PHOTO: Breakfast With Benedict
I know we’re not supposed to be showing anything spoilery about the filming of the next series of Sherlock, at the express request of the show’s producer, Sue Vertue, but I’m sure this doesn’t count.
See this? That’s Benedict Cumberbatch – of Star Trek Into Darkness fame – drinking a swift cuppa yesterday morning, in Speedy’s Café, London, during the filming of The Sign of Three.
Speedy’s is the location of the cafe next to 221B Baker Street in Sherlock, and is therefore a verifiable London landmark. The people that run Speedy’s are aware of this, it is fair to say.
Not only do they sell a Sherlock wrap – filled with chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, red onions, red peppers, cucumber and chili sauce – they also took this picture, and tweeted it too.

And if you’re wondering why we’re not immediately rushing to make the ‘eggs Benedict’ pun, it’s because Radio Times did it first, the witty scoundrels!
