A quick poll around Handbag HQ reveals that he's the very definition of a 'Marmite-man'. Some of us fancy the pants off him (even when he plays socially unacceptable Sherlock Holmes), while everyone else is okay to just admire his stellar Shakespearean-style acting chops.
So whether you picture ripping his clothes off or enjoying his company dinner party-style, here are five reasons why we're still loving Benedict Cumberbatch...
1. His dramatic reading of R Kelly
He's not afraid to look silly on national TV. Ben appeared on Jimmy Kimmel to do a dramatic reading of R Kelly's Black Panties. It's funny.
2. His impression of Alan Rickman
Check out Benedict doing his super impression of Harry Potter star Alan Rickman...
3. His Sherlock Holmes
The new season starts in the New Year and we just can't wait.
4. His unconventional James Bond audition
He even jumped over things to prove his Bond-style credentials!
5. His Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness
His major move into Hollywood was a roaring success. Fans, beware, this deleted shower scene may be too much for you.
