We did it! #HappyBirthdayBenedictCumberbatch did light up the Twitterscape, says Radio Times.
Plus, today was the news of Team Sherlock's many Emmy nominations: BBC Sherlock got thirteen, yes! (Downton Abbey's are in there too.) Go, Team Sherlock!!!
A rousing well done to us!
Fans all over the world Tweeted. And blogged, and made cake, and had parties... and found that today was a day when our Twitter feeds lit up with one man's name.
Let alone made videos and sent cards and did a millard other things.
As the day's not over yet in the New World, there's another 8 hours to go. :D
The charity project to celebrate Benedict's birthday -- @Cumberbatchweb's been raising money against teen cancer as their fandom gift -- is past a whopping eight thousand GBP. Yes, you read that right: £8000!
Eight hours ago, it was just past £7300.
A friend of his Tweets Benedict's response.
There has been much cake and rejoicing. Happy Cumberday to us all, and especially to Benedict. We do love you, birthday boy. <3 Many more happy returns to you, Benedict.
