Benedict Cumberbatch, you are getting really good at using the paparazzi to your advantage.

The other day Benedict was spotted on the set of Sherlock urging the paparazzi to go photograph the trouble in Egypt instead of him, and today Benedict was at it once more.

I mean, when you’ve got a captive audience like the folks who go to the Sherlock set why not use them to your advantage, right? Benedict went right up to the paparazzi and his fans and held up four sheets of paper. 

Since the pages are a little hard to read, I’m going to be a gem and write it out for you.

  1. “Questions we have a right to ask in a democracy – Cameron, Theresa May, GCHQ, teachers, parents, each other …..”
  2. “Hard drives smashed, journalists detained at airports…… Democracy?”
  3. “Schedule 7 Prior restraint – is this erosion of civil liberties winning the war on terror…..?”
  4. “What do they not want you to know? And how did they get to know it? Does the exposure of their techniques cause a threat to our security or does it just cause them embarrassment…?”

According to reports, Benedict’s questions come on the heels of the UK government choosing to detain the parter of a Guardian journalist under anti-terror laws. Alright government, the ball is in your court. Give Benedict the answers he requires before he goes all Sherlock on you.

Launch the gallery to check out all the photos–and to see what Benedict’s handwriting looks like. Love him, love him, love him.
