Is that Cumberbatch's voice?

[personal profile] suddenlyflying 2011-05-15 07:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes indeed! I love his Watson voice. It's so comforting.

The trilled 'r's - I can never decide if I find them funny or not. I think I do a bit, it just makes him sound even more pretentious than he usually does.

[personal profile] suddenlyflying 2011-05-15 07:02 pm (UTC)(link)
I sort of love his poshness. I usually don't go for the type but he's just so sincere about it that I find him utterly endearing.

[personal profile] hexiva 2011-05-15 07:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I think he does Holmes better than Watson.

Upset Watson is upset

Am now imagining Sherlock sarcastically wearing John's jumpers. Because he can do that.

I love how Watson's like "Staying cooped up in a house with Holmes for a few days? Yes please!"

I love how standard a trope it is that anyone wanting to get at Holmes would go for Watson (someone very close to him!)

[personal profile] hexiva 2011-05-15 07:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I remember reading an essay a while ago that posited that Watson - Bruce!Watson specifically - always took the place of the damsel in distress to the asexual Holmes.

He is now imitating Watson imitatig Holmes and it's HILARIOUS.

Cumberbatch playing Victorian!Holmes is interesting. You can hear some of Sherlock in there, with a bit of added age and maturity to it, I think.

Is anyone else imagining John rather than a Victorian Watson?

I'm imagining a National Enquirer style article about John & Sherlock's messy, dramatic break-up. Complete with dramatic paparazzi pictures. XD

Breakup announcement in the papers ;__;

[personal profile] hexiva 2011-05-15 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, Watson. Why? It's like the story about Orpheus. You're reading it and going, YOU WERE TOLD NOT TO DO THAT, YOU WERE TOLD WHAT WOULD HAPPED IF YOU DID, DON'T DO IT. And then he does anyway. Watson opens the door . . .

I love how even the fictional prospect of their breakup leaves Watson unable to sleep and completely heartbroken stressed out.

"I hope you're being truthful with me, Watson."
Oh seriously Holmes, COME OFF IT.
