Benedict Cumberbatch Reading an Alan Turing Letter in Celebration of Written Correspondence is Peak Cumberbatch

Be my penpal?


In anticipation of independent U.K. publisher Canongate‘s annual Letters Live event, (at which Cumberbatch is a frequent presenter, of course) here’s Benedict “Pingwing” Cumberbatch reading a letter from Alan Turing to mathematician Norman Routledge.

If you’re interested in seeing more correspondence read live, The BBC has the deets:

The show spans five nights, with up to nine celebrities reading letters written by historical figures at each two-hour session, taking place at Freemason’s Hall in Covent Garden, London, from March 31 to April 4.

What do you think, gang? Any regular letter writers out there, or UK readers who’re familiar with the event?
