Benedict Cumberbatch to appear live on The One Show

The Sherlock and Parade’s End star will be talking to Alex Jones and Chris Evans about his latest projects on Friday’s programme


Good news Cumberbatch fans!  You won’t have to wait for Parade’s End at 9pm to see Benedict on TV tomorrow because he’ll be making a live appearance on The One Show from 7pm to 7:30pm on BBC1. 


The Sherlock star will be stopping in to White City to share the famous sofa with Alex Jones and Chris Evans as they chat about his new period drama Parade’s End, in which Cumberbatch stars as part of a stellar cast including Rebecca Hall, Adelaide Clemens, Rupert Everett and Miranda Richardson, to name but a few. 

Cumberbatch plays Christopher Tietjens, the “cleverest man in London”, in Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of Ford Maddox Ford’s tetralogy of novels. 

But can he use his great intellect to stop himself falling in love with beautiful suffragette Valentine (Adelaide Clemens) and keep his marriage to Sylvia (Rebecca Hall) alive?


Tune in to The One Show at 7pm for more on the show, before the main event at 9pm on BBC2 as the 5-part BBC/HBO coproduction gets underway.
