Fans of Benedict Cumberbatch, whether they align themselves as part of the Cumber Collective or as Cumberbitches, love comparing Cumberbatch to otters. This is a real thing and it’s hilarious. On the latest episode of The Graham Norton Show, Norton took the comparisons to the next level and hilarity ensued. Norton had Cumberbatch make otter poses based on pictures of real otters.

I don’t know what is best, how wonderfully game Cumberbatch is to play along (and so charmingly as well) or the look on other guest, Johnny Depp’s face. He’s not looking down on Cumberbatch at all but definitely bemused and, like the rest of the world, in awe of Mr. Cumberbatch.  BC is always down for fun.

Here are the otter/Cumberbatch comparison shots and watch the whole interview below – it will put a smile on your face and a little jump in your step!
