Fancy listening to Benedict Cumberbatch’s dulcet tones this rainy Thursday afternoon? Silly question, of course you do…
Why don’t we accomodate you? Dating back to 2003, here’s a clip of the actor long before his Sherlock days, providing the voice for Jane Austen’s dashing gentleman Edmund Bertram opposite Felicity Jones’s Fanny Price.
The pair are joined by David Tennant (pre-Doctor Who fame) in the Radio 4 adaptation of Austen’s beloved novel, first published in 1814.
