Benedict Cumberbatch prevented the crime that the attackers tried to commit in the area of Baker Street, where, according to the literary source, the famous detective Sherlock Holmes lived. This was reported by The Telegraph.
It is alleged that the actor, who was traveling in a taxi, witnessed the attack on the courier by four unknown malefactors. The young man was hit on the head and tried to take away his load and bicycle. According to the taxi driver, Cumberbatch intervened in the scuffle. “They tried to hit him, but he actively defended himself and was able to push them away. Fortunately, he was not injured. It seems to me that in the end they still found out that it was Benedict and ran away,” he said. The London Police Department confirmed this information. The attackers have not yet been detained.
Recall that that at the end of 2017 the series "Sherlock" was among the ten most popular television shows among video pirates. However, the rating of the project is steadily declining. "Sherlock" also claimed the main USA anti-award "Rusty Bagel 2018", which is awarded by users of the "Novosti Kino" portal. The further fate of the project is still unknown.
