The BBC’s “Sherlock” is over it seems following the fourth season over a year ago, and for now there are no plans for further episodes. Earlier this year actor Martin Freeman, who played Dr. John Watson on the series alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes, told a British tabloid he doesn’t have fun making the show anymore due mainly to the fan pressure that comes with it.
Now Cumberbatch chimed in on Freeman’s critiques in a recent interview with the same outlet, The Telegraph and from the sounds of it he holds a very different opinion:
“It’s pretty pathetic if that’s all it takes to let you not want to take a grip of your reality. What, because of expectations? I don’t know. I don’t necessarily agree with that… I just don’t feel affected by that in the same way, I have to say.”
Both actors are currently busy with their places in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Freeman as Everett Ross in several of the films. Both actors also have very busy resumes with plenty of films on the way.
