Meeting Benedict Cumberbatch

After a very dull school revision myself and Molly decided to go to Cardiff for lunch. It was only when we were there did she realise that Sherlock was set to be filming there about 10 mins from where we were, so we used the gps on Molly's phone and headed over there.
It was freezing cold and we had very little in the department of layers so we stood and jumped around trying to regain body heat. Just as we were about to give up, the extremely kind people of the Beverly Hotel gave us some hot (and very, very welcome) tea and some chips and soon enough I could at least start to feel my feet again.
Some other Sherlock fans arrived short after, along with Molly's mum baring gifts of two huge warm coats, gloves, scarves and hats. We waiting for a while longer, talking to the other fans about Sherlock and the other masterpieces of the BBC.
One of the crew came out to ask us to be a bit quieter as Benedict was inside the bed and breakfast shooting and they could hear us, he gave us some information about the shoot (nothing too significant though, so don't worry), he also took our address to get signatures to be sent to our house because they had none on them at that present moment, so we were all very happy that we would at least be getting a signature. A short while later Sue Vertue came out and told us that as long as we didn't scream or run over, Benedict would come out and say hello.
We all were extremely happy and I would like to say a massive thank you to Sue for arranging this because it meant that all that waiting around in the freezing cold weather was completely worth it just to finally say that we had seen Benedict Cumberbatch.

Here are some pictures I took.

also here is a video Molly took.

Thank you Benedict for taking the time out of shooting to say hello to us all I'm pretty sure you have made all of our Easters that little bit more special, and given all of our parents an earache with the amount we will be talking about it!
