Benedict Cumberbatch said he wants to be part of something where he can be set aside to judge, said ”It’s different when you’ve got a producer’s hat on. If you’re front and centre, that’s really hard. I’m excited about the moment when I’m not in something and I can look at it with more distance, but it’s very peculiar. It’s always horrible – the way you look, the way you do things. It’s just horrible. Trust me, the internet’s full of hate but it’s nothing compared to the self-critic in your head for brutality. I’ve said it all before they have.”
