Benedict Cumberbatch and SNL 'Meet At Last' in Haunting First Promo

TV’s Sherlock is temporarily relocating from 221B Baker Street to Studio 8H when Benedict Cumberbatch hosts Saturday Night Live on Nov. 5. 

Cumberbatch, who can next be seen in Marvel’s Doctor Strange (out on Nov. 4), is front and center in this new SNL promo, speaking directly to the iconic New York studio when he declares “we meet at last” before taking center stage.

The actor is perhaps the most fitting choice to serve as host of SNL‘s last pre-Election Day outing. As you’ll recall, the British thespian once portrayed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in the 2013 thriller The Fifth Estate. It’s a pretty safe bet he’ll reprise that role this weekend.

Press PLAY on the teaser above, then tell us if you’ll be tuning in for Cumberbatch’s SNL hosting debut.

    Wouldn’t miss it! If the episode comes close to maintaining this standard, we’re in for a treat.

    So., who’s playing Watson in the “Sherlock” sketch?

    One of his qualities was that he always seemed to be such a gentleman which is a rare quality these days. So sad to see him using the F word just to fit in with the vulgarity so often found on this show nowadays. SNL used to be a must watch for our entire family, now we ignore it.

    They should poke fun and have him do an over the top Doctor Who.
