Huge love for Benedict Cumberbatch!

There has been a fantastic response to the Benedict Cumberbatch colouring book! Or, as some news articles suggested, the "Cumberbook".

We've been featured everywhere from super serious news websites, to fashion magazines, to trendy geek culture websites... Just goes to show the massive appeal Benedict has out there in the world!

So we thought that we would share some of our favourite headlines that made us smile:

Benedict Cumberbatch to Star in ‘Hamlet’ and Coloring Book

It's always good to know what your competition is, and apparently we're right up there with Shakespeare now!

The Metro suggested it was compulsory to own one:

You need to have this Benedict Cumberbatch colouring book in your life

although they seemed a little worried about what to make of it!

The bizarre creation, the brainchild of British artist Mel Elliott – and sold via her I Love Mel website - offers 17 random, and at times slightly surreal images of the Sherlock star for fans to let their colouring imaginations run wild.

Jezebel ran a feature on Benedict and Ryan, our long-time mascot who can't be forgotten, together:

Ryan Gosling, Benedict Cumberbatch Coloring Books Are Must-Haves

In more "Exactly What You Need in Your Life Right Now" news, some beautiful genius made coloring books dedicated to Benedict Cumberbatch and Ryan Gosling.
"How on Earth can you make these two beautiful men even more perfect?" you have no doubt asked yourself countless times. By decorating them with all the colors of the rainbow, naturally!
Which prompted an impromptu petition for a Colour Me Good Tom Hiddleston. Which of course we agree has to be a thing!

So to all the Cumberbunnies out there, thank you for being such good fans, and don't forget to check out our full Benedict package: the book, the pencils, the earrings and the necklace, because when it comes to Mr Cumberbatch, there's no such thing as too much! Especially not when Sherlock manages nine episodes in four years... You need to fill the gap somehow!
