The second in my weekly round up of where you can see Benedict Cumberbatch and his co-stars in the coming weeks:
Currently can be seen in cinemas playing Peter Guillam in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy which has been number 1 at the UK box office for 2 weeks!
Third Star is now available to purchase from on-line retailers such as Amazon and for download from sites such as Itunes.
All 3 Wreckers screenings at the London film festival have now sold out. Stand by tickets are available for all screenings on the day from 30 minutes before but you will need to queue. Wreckers is released in the UK on 16 December in cinemas and for home viewing on Curzon on demand (UK only).

A preview screening of the first episode of Sherlock series 2 - A Scandal in Belgravia will be aired at the BFI on 6 December 2011 followed by a Q&A with cast & crew. Tickets go on sale to members on 1 November 2011. For those who can’t attend the Q&A will likely be filmed and highlights aired on BFI Live the BFI’s video channel.
Louise Brealey - Appearing in 66 Books at the Bush Theatre from 10-29 October. 66 Books is a series of readings from the King James Bible. Doesn’t look like you can search by cast so the only way to see everyone would be to opt for one of the 24 hour performances! Others appearing include Arthur Darvil and Indira Varma.
Bertie Carvel (Sebastian in The Blind Banker) - About to open as Mrs Trunchbull in Matilda in the West End. The first 5 previews were cancelled this week so the show now starts on 25 October 2011
Martin Freeman - still being a hobbit.
Also has a cameo in What’s Your Number a fairly poorly reviewed rom-com which is due for release in cinemas soon starring Chris Evans (Captain America) and Anna Faris. Martin plays Anna’s English ex and Total Film describes his role thusly:
"Martin Freeman’s friendly face pops up as her charming English ex but doesn’t get to do much…"
Mark Gatiss -
Will be on your TV screens on Saturday evening in the Doctor Who finale The Wedding of River Song looking somewhat unrecognisable as a one eyed viking called Gantok.
In October BBC Radio 4 Extra will be airing a story called Black Butterfly written and read by Mark.
Appearing in the NT’s readings of the King James Bible. He will be appearing in the Gospel according to Luke on October 22nd at 6:00 p.m. and on November 5th at 8:30 p.m. Tickets have been on sale for a while and are going quite fast.

Andrew Scott - Whats on Stage have reported that Andrew will be appearing in the Gospel According to John at the NT.
