Benedict Cumberbatch has slammed his Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman as “pathetic” after he hit out at fans.

The Hobbit actor had recently said he found filming the BBC hit series hard when so many fans of the show are around the set.

“Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing. People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun any more. It’s not a thing to be enjoyed,” Martin said last month.

And speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Benedict said he did not agree with his comments.

“It’s pretty pathetic if that’s all it takes to let you not want to take grip of your reality.

“What, because of expectations? I don’t know. I don’t necessarily agree with that,” he explained.

While the pair play partners on the much-loved show, the actors never socialise outside work, and are said to not have a “close relationship”.
