Benedict Cumberbatch plays the imitation game in Glasgow
IT’S a mystery worthy of Sherlock… Benedict Cumberbatch is sighted in New York yet is only a few hundred miles from his London home.
Elementary, dear readers — the location is in fact Glasgow, which has been disguised as the Big Apple complete with a yellow cab, US flags and street signs.
The Imitation Game star, 41, was in Bothwell Street yesterday to film Melrose, a Sky Atlantic and Showtime series based on Edward St Aubyn’s novels.
He plays Patrick Melrose, an ‘outrageously funny playboy’ who turns to substance abuse after a traumatic childhood. The series will be aired next year.
