Benedict Cumberbatch Announces Engagement, Breaks Millions Of Hearts With Simple Newspaper Ad. Sherlock star (and person whose name people love to get hilariously wrong) Benedict Cumberbatch appears to have announced his surprise engagement in traditional fashion: with a nondescript newspaper announcement.
The old school ad, set under “Forthcoming Marriages” in the Wednesday edition of British newspaper The Times, reads as follows:
MR B.T. CUMBERBATCH AND MISS S.I. HUNTER
The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katherine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London
