"Sorry, I’m taken. I didn’t think I’d have to answer Qs from someone who wanted to taste my deliciousness."—Benedict Cumberbatch

Bless Benedict Cumberbatch. He turned bright red and stammered his way through the Qs after that woman told him he was “yummy.”


he finally confirmed he is taken! congrats, Ben!!

Taken aback more likely.


We don’t generally cover unofficial merchandise on Cumberbatchweb but when we saw snippets of Colour Me Good Benedict Cumberbatch pop up on the internet we had to make an exception!

Created by British artist Mel Elliott Colour Me Good Benedict Cumberbatch is a colouring book the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Apart from colouring in images of Benedict (including images from Sherlock, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Hawking and Star Trek Into Darkness - the artwork is really very good) readers are encouraged to draw all sorts - groovy patterns on Benedict’s scarf, a hearty meal for him to eat, a cosy chair for him to sit his bottom on, a date for him to take to a party and a dream house for you both to live in. 

The book is also full of such entertaining daftness as asking you to come up with a life changing invention that is cuter than both Benedict Cumberbatch and kittens, posing a challenge for Sherlock to solve and querying what you would like Benedict to say to you.

It is all as gloriously silly as it sounds. While perfect for the younger fans I suspect many an adult would have a riot colouring this in. 

You can buy Colour Me Good Benedict Cumberbatch direct from Mel’s on-line store for £7.50 (Colour Me Good Tom Hiddleston is apparently on the way…)
