Is that the sound of demographics noisily converging I hear? Are the massed ranks of Cumberbabes about to invade the manly environs of Top Gear?
On Monday July 22 at 8:30 pm/7:30c on BBC AMERICA, Benedict Cumberbatch — Sherlock himself — will be Top Gear’s star in a reasonably-priced car. Which of course means a bit of an interview, probably some chat about his astonishingly full schedule, and a lap of the Top Gear race course in this year’s car: a 1.6 Tech Line Vauxhall Astra.
As things stand currently, he will need to go faster than Brian Johnson, the lead singer from AC/DC, who managed a lap in 1:45.1.
Knowing how busy he is, I wouldn’t put it past him to get around in a minute and spend the extra 45 seconds shooting a movie.
What do you think Benedict’s time will be? Post your predictions below:
