The worlds of Sherlock and Doctor Who collided on the red carpet tonight, and the internet didn’t know what to do with itself.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Matt Smith were making their way into the Royal Festival Hall for the BAFTA Television Awards when they bumped into each other.
Unlike a lot of celebs, the pair looked genuinely delighted to see each other and wasted no time in having a massive hug.
