A 16-year-old British teenager has found fame for being a near-on identical match to Benedict Cumberbatch.

Tyler Mitchell, the Cumberbatch doppelgänger, has gained over 13,000 followers on Instagram thanks to his uncanny resemblance to the Sherlock detective.

What kind of evil sorchery is this?

The real Benedict Cumberbatch...or is it?



The teen is getting so much attention from Sherlock's Chinese fans who are mistaking him for the real Benedict, he had to post the other day, "Chinese followers. Stop commenting on all my stuff."

The poor guy then had to defend himself saying, "I wasn't being racist. I couldn't understand what the comments said." Bless.

We can understand the confusion - it is spooky:
