Welcome once again to our semi-regular feature* in which we here at Vizsla HQ are simply thrilled to welcome some fabulous people for a compelling and insightful interview, marred only slightly by the fact that they aren't actually 'here' in any conventionally accepted usage of the word.
*Which is to say we did this once before and doing another one seemed to fall somewhere between being a good idea and admitting publicly that I didn't have any particularly good original ideas today. Look, I'm actually not feeling very well today and I've been under a lot of stress and who are you to judge me.
Today I'm thrilled to be able to bring you my thrilling discussion with the only acceptable T.V. Sherlock Holmes - Imaginary Benedict Cumberbatch
<Oh - and Spoiler Warning concerning Star Trek: Into Darkness, btw>
VIZSLA: Hello there Mr. Cumberbatch, [Imaginary], it's a great pleasure to imagine speaking with you
IMAGINARY BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH: Please, call me Imaginary Benedict
V: How nice of you, thanks!
IBC: It's how I roll. I'm terribly, terribly 'Street'
V: Yes, I've always believed that to be the case.
V: Let's talk Sherlock for just a moment. I understand that Martin Freeman is an incredible snuggler.
IBC: ... that's... not actually show related...
V: But he is, right?
IBC: Oh, he totally is.
V: So I finally got around to watching Star Trek last night and... I'm sorry... I just can't stop thinking about how much you look like an otter.
IBC: It's true. I'm one eighth otter on my mother's side.
V: Well, that explains it.
IBC: Did you enjoy Star Trek?
V: I did, yes. Although watching it forced me to acknowledge that I had never seen the original series episode 'Space Seed', in which we first met Khan, the character you play in the film.
IBC: For Shiz.
V: I know. So I went to Netflix and watched it.
IBC: And what did you think?
V: I think I saw a lot more of Ricardo Montalban's flesh than I ever wanted to.
IBC: I am so sorry.
V: Yes, I was kind of blaming you for that.
IBC: Totally my bad. Totally.
