Well thank you for making it all clear for me, Captain Obvious, because I wouldn’t realise it without your shocking statement.
I get it, he is the tittle character, BUT it’s not he’s the only one. Let’s go with the most obvious one - Martin Freeman/John. In my opinion he is equal to Benedict Cumberbatch/Sherlock. He might not be the tittle character, but I couldn’t imagine show without him.
And also, what I am talking about, are the news. I get it, right now Freeman is mostly working on Hobbit, but whenever there is a news about Cumberbatch, I see news all around my dash. New photos, new role, new film, new rumour, new interview, etc. Yet Freeman is much more expressive than Cumberbatch, and watching interviews with him makes you realise that he’s not the “nice guy”, and (for me) they are more interesting than those with Cumberbatch.
And now I am talking only about Freeman while there are so many more other people on this show. I get it, that Benedict became the biggest star, but I love to see more about other actors/characters. I remember reading interview with Louise Brealey about her role on The Trojan Women, where she talked about psoriasis and problems with accepting her body. It was a great piece to read.
You see, thing with fandom seeing only Benedict Cumberbatch is just like the thing with Moffat. Some people keep forgetting that Sherlock is created also by Mark Gatiss and Steve Thompson.
