Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston – who does the best Alan Rickman impression?

Sherlock's Cumberbatch and Thor star Hiddleston in the battle to end all battles... yes, it's a Rickman-off

Actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston both have big-budget movies and TV shows to their names. Sherlock, Star Trek, Thor, War Horse to name but a few. But the big question on everybody’s lips (ok, perhaps just mine) is which of the two actors does the best impression of Alan Rickman.


A sort of Snape Wars, if you will…

Here they both are showing off their best Rickman tones – Cumberbatch simply speaking in Rickman’s voice, Hiddleston reciting a line from Rickman’s days as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Your job is to pick your favourite and vote below…
