Star in a Reasaonably Priced Car

Worlds Colliding: Sherlock Star Benedict Cumberbatch To Be On Top Gear

If he can drive a starship, then a car ought to be pretty easy, right? Yes, that sound you hear reverberating around the internet is British TV fans of all sorts shrieking with glee – Sherlock and Star Trek star Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be on Top Gear. Really.

The actor will be the infamous Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car and, as such, will have to do a lap of the Top Gear race track in this year’s car: a 1.6 Tech Line Vauxhall Astra. (This segment is absolutely the best part of Top Gear, by the way, for the approximately six of you out there who’ve never seen the show.) There will also be a bit of a - probably pretty silly - interview to go along with the racing thing. All in all, it promises to be an excellent show, don't you think?
