PHOTO: Benedict Cumberbatch Takes A Break From Sherlock Filming With Co-Stars

Benedict Cumberbatch is a hard working actor, but every hard working actor needs a break and that’s exactly what he did when he was spotted taking a break in a coffee shop.

In a picture posted on Twitter by the sandwich and coffee shop Benedict was spotted in, the actor appeared in good spirits as he sipped on his coffee, and pointed to his co-star Amanda Abbingrton.

Having posted the picture, the caption to the picture read: “Breakfast time with #Benedictcumberbatch #Sherlock #nobreakforme #fryuptime.”

As the cast reunite to film scenes, Benedict , who plays the role of the iconic detective, recently suggested that series three of Sherlock won’t be returning to our screens until Christmas.

He told the Radio Times recently: “I think they’re talking about the winter (to show it). Around Christmas but I’m not quite sure when.”

Staying schtum on the speculation over which  of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories the producers will use, the show’s writer Steven Moffat added: “[The three words] may be misleading, are not titles, are only teases or possibly clues, but might be deliberately designed to get you into a lather.”

Co-creator Mark Gatiss added: “We could change it completely… that’s the fun.”

Meanwhile, illusionist Derren Brown was recently spotted filming scenes for the BBC drama leading to questions about his involvement in the storyline. In scenes, Derren could be seen grappling with Sherlock’s side kick Watson, played by Martin Freeman who ended up on the floor as the illusionist ran off.
