LONDON: The ‘Consulting Detective’ doesn’t like to get his work affected because of his fans.

British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrays the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes in BBC series ‘Sherlock’, has whined about fans asking him to pose for photos while he is working, reports Mirror.
 
While talking about his new series ‘The Child in Time’, he said, “We had to shoot the supermarket scene early in the morning. We started at 6.30am. It was very difficult for me and running out into a busy street and people going ‘Can I have a selfie?’. It was hard.”
 
He added, “That was difficult. I was like ‘Not now – go away. Please go away’.”
 
The ‘Imitation Game’ star also revealed that when they filmed along the Embankment in London it was “like street theatre, it got pretty weird”.
 
“It was like ‘Oh the Thames and then 500 f***ing people’. That is odd. It is part of the gig I suppose,” noted Cumberbatch.
 
He also shared that he is happy doing TV rather than films, saying: “The lines are blurred now between the small and big screen.”
