Benedict Cumberbatch turns 37 today, we celebrate by perving over some pics

So guess what we found out today? It's our very own Benedict Cumberbatch's birthday! Happy birthday, Bennie. On this special occasion we thought we would treat ourselves to a little look back over Cumberbuns' career. We may have got a little overexcited and had to nip to the loo to splash cold water on our wrists. Here's a whole bunch of pictures featuring the swoonsome 37-year-old. Enjoy.

Although he'd appeared in stuff for the small screen, it was quirky British film Starter for 10 that launched Benedict into the big leagues. He played sanctimonious boffin Patrick Watts and got punched in the face by the film's lead, James McAvoy.

Let it be stated for the records that Cumberbuns is one helluva stylish man. We like him best in a suit (who doesn't?) but this pic of him at the Tamara Drewe premiere in London shows he's not afraid of mixing it up a bit. Salmon pink jacket and Panama hat? Yes. YES.

The hearts of a billion (at least) fangirls skipped a number of beats when they saw this photo of Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch having a hug at the Baftas. That's right: Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes embracing. And a whole new generation of fanfic was born.

…Oh, and the best team in history was given the recognition it deserves with one of those golden masks. Casting Martin Freeman as John Watson was a stroke of genius as he provides a more-than-equal sidekick to Benedict's brooding, brilliant Sherlock.

The first series of Sherlock has been welcomed with a huge wave of approval, so fans got to see Benedict return to their screens early last year. And we almost got to see a flash of his naked bum. So close.

We were denied the sight of our gorgeous Bennie for a while as he was "busy" doing "other projects", namely recording the part of Smaug the Dragon for the upcoming Hobbit film (once again alongside Martin Freeman). He managed to find the time to take on the character of Khan for Star Trek: Into Darkness, in which he played a power-crazed superhuman. Who knew sort-of aliens could be so gosh darn sexy?

Oh my. Well we always knew Benedict had a huge range. What we didn't know was that he owned such a killer pair of pins. Is it wrong that we still find him extremely fanciable in this get-up? No. No it's not.
