Re: Recent interview extracts

Hopefully not: I don't see why they couldn't work together, even if they have differences.

But I've been mulling it over, and it's still bothering me.  Of course, it has been reported in the media as Benedict "slams" Martin, and so on, but the more I think of it, the more I think he absolutely must have known that would happen.  He's not stupid, and it would have been easy enough for him to answer the question in a different way - after all, the question(s) were about how Benedict was affected, rather than what he thought of Martin.  So for some reason, he wanted a story out there about a rift between them.  Why do you think he would want that?

Re: Recent interview extracts

Because I think he's a bit disappointed with Martin about something, but I don't think it has anything to do with Sherlock.

Re: Recent interview extracts

I agree, Liberty. He is media-savvy enough by now to know what they will make out of it. And doing it twice, with stronger wordings, seems quite deliberate. 

Edit: This has reached Norwegian media now. An online newspaper calling it "full-out Sherlock quarrel". Here we go...

I still think it´s comments in the Martin´s interview that made him irrate for some reason. He would not wait more than half and a year for voicing his low opinion on things concerning Sherlock, IMHO.

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Recent interview extracts

German media are also reporting this, even Spiegel and Stern. 

Here is another take on this by Martin where he tries to calm things down a bit. Starts am 4.40:

Re: Recent interview extracts

Thanks, Susi, for the link. I really liked what he said a lot. 

Usually Martin is the sassy and grumpy one, while Ben is the classy and diplomatic one. It seems the roles have been reversed.

Re: Recent interview extracts

Yes, thanks from me too, Susi.
And well done Martin, as well.
That seems to be fairly clear from his point of view: no rift with Benedict and happy to do Sherlock again.

Re: Recent interview extracts

Thanks for sharing the link to the interview. I appreciate Martin's honesty and his wanting to be clear about what he meant to say.

Re: Recent interview extracts

Thank you for the link!  Some lovely comments from Martin there, about Sherlock!  I actually think he was quite clear in the interview (if his words were reported accurately) that it wasn't the show itself that was the problem.  Kudos to him for not hitting back at Benedict and turning it into a feud.  I think that's the best approach.

Re: Recent interview extracts

Are we sure that he is aware of Benedict's comments?!

Re: Recent interview extracts

Ooh, I don't know!  I couldn't hear the question and thought it was about that, but I suppose he does sound remarkably calm and generous about Benedict if that's the case!  Maybe he isn't aware?  Oh dear!

Re: Recent interview extracts

No she merely asked him about his infamous 'no fun' interview, no mention of Benedict's reaction to it!

Re: Recent interview extracts

I don't think he was aware of it. But I am sure some reporter will confront him about it soon enough.

Re: Recent interview extracts

I know this is the category for Ben's press, but seeing as I think it would be good to keep this discussion in one thread, I am posting this here. Martin has made a new statement (because he was asked again) about his thoughts on Sherlock. And, again, I fully understand where he is coming from and wholeheartedly agree with him! (And thankfully the interviewer didn't bring up Ben's comment):

Re: Recent interview extracts

Good interview!  I love that he hasn't turned it into a feud (although he may still not be aware of Ben's comments!).  I like what he says the human stories in zombie films.

Re: Recent interview extracts

I think it's the mark of class actors that they look for more thn the superficial...Benedict is the same.

Re: Recent interview extracts

Surely he has seen the headlines about the "rift" by now?  Good on him for continuing to be gracious (and positive about S5!).
