If we had to pick three guests to attend our hypothetical dinner party, well, these guys would be pretty high on our list. Take musician Nick Cave – at the premiere of his new film 20,000 Days on Earth – add Benedict Cumberbatch and John Hurt and you have something for pretty much everyone.
Yes, Sherlock and the War Doctor really were in the same room, although this isn’t the first time the pair have met –they starred together in 2011’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. But tweeter Jamie Byng (@baddabyng) had the privilege of introducing Cumberbatch to Cave (friends in high places, eh?)
I love this photo of Nick Cave and Benedict Cumberbatch, two soulful spirits who just met tonight for the first time! pic.twitter.com/wUquTBXQwG
