Benedict Cumberbatch is certainly the man of the moment, but besides that, he really is a man of extraordinary talent. I am not thinking so much of his recent work on Sherlock, or even Parade’s End (which should have been more critical of Imperialism), but I liked his performance in To the Ends of the Earth, a series that I will review in a while from now, and warmly recommend to all of you. All the childish hype aside, Cumberbatch is quickly becoming the leading character actor of his day, if Hollywood doesn’t waste him over the usual villain roles.
This has to be the single best reading of Keats’ Nightingale that I ever had the pleasure to listen to. So, without much ado, enjoy! 🙂
