I am a huge fan of the BBC/PBS airings of Sherlock, and while I love Benedict Cumberbatch, I am not quite a Cumberbitch, as yet. I am more a fan of Martin Freeman, who plays Watson and of Andrew Scott as Moriarty.
I became even a bigger fan, when I read this:
“Mercifully, these days people don't see being gay as a character flaw. But nor is it a virtue, like kindness. Or a talent, like playing the banjo. It's just a fact. Of course, it's part of my make-up, but I don't want to trade on it. I am a private person; I think that's important if you're an actor. But there's a difference between privacy and secrecy, and I'm not a secretive person. Really I just want to get on with my job, which is to pretend to be lots of different people. Simple as that.”
Privacy, not secrecy. I like that and, well, I like me an Irishman like Scoot.
So, welcome out, Andrew, and as our gift to you from HOMO HQ we’ll be sending you a copy of The Gay Agenda and the Official Coming Out Toaster Oven. While it’s mostly an American appliance, it would be useful when warming up your Bangers and Mash … and by that I mean food.
