The news of Cumberbatch’s possible new love comes from the showrunner for PBS’ “Masterpiece Mystery,” Rebecca Eaton. Since “Masterpiece” airs “Sherlock” stateside, Eaton may be the one to know. As reported by the New York Post’s Page Six, Eaton has explained that it might be time for fans of the actor to “move on” due to a new lady in the man’s life.
Of course, no one knows for sure who that lucky lady might be. Cumberbatch has recently been spotted with Dakota Johnson (“Fifty Shades of Grey”), but there has been no confirmation of anything other than friendship there.
The only thing really likely is that Cumberbatch is off the market and the dreams of millions have therefore died.
