"He's just an old tramp in the woods!"  
For anyone who watches Sherlock and has gone on Tumblr even once, we all know the answer to Graham Norton's question. I love Jamie Oliver's response though. And Ben Stiller poking holes in the whole thing.

I am constantly amazed at how quick-witted Martin Freeman is. He has the funny response to things before they are even out of the person's mouth. He really is a wonderful reactor, and a good sport.

Poor redscharlach, I don't think she knew what she had wrought when she started the otters thing. I'm glad the actors take it in stride, though it's one of the less embarassing Sherlock things fans have come up with. All of the interviewers who use it don't seem to pick up on the Cabin Pressure link, though. Cumberbatch and otters isn't as random a link as it appears. But I don't blame the researchers for not diving in that far. It's scary in the deep end of this fandom.

I'd invite hedgehog!Freeman to our tea party, but I somehow think he might be the troublemaker there. And poor faun!Whishaw will be overwhelmed at so many guests.

Some poor intern started to before he or she was like, "Nope" after going into Tumblr.

Maybe he can be a special guest that otter!Batch brings along when it's just the three of them. Although I do fear it'll turn into some sort of articulate 5 year olds messing about in poor faun!Whishaw's cottage.

At least meerkat!Hiddleston would be apologizing for the mess every five seconds. He and otter!Batch seem to try to out polite each other when together, so perhaps if we brought him along, he might counteract hedgehog!Freeman's influence on otter!Batch.

Martin Freeman's an awfully good sport about it. I was torn between "That is pretty funny" and "That is totally inappropriate to do to a guest" and "But it could have been so much more inappropriate." The latter is especially true because it's Graham Norton.

People tend to know what they could be in for when they go on Graham Norton's show. At least they didn't show him on air the Sherlock slash stuff that's out there. Which Martin Freeman is totally aware of.

I think he made Martin look at some during the live Red Nose Day show a while back. It caused much uproar, as the artists' permissions were not asked.

And, anyway, since the Emcee of the BFI screening forced Martin and Benedict read slash fiction aloud, I doubt they've got any innocence left, poor fellows.

Sometimes I would just like to send a note of apology for the fandom. I honestly have no idea what makes it act so inappropriately, but it's like being out in public with a drunken, disruptive friend.
