Downton Abbey stars bite back at Benedict Cumberbatch
The cast of Downton Abbey
Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch is not exactly a bashful type, as his slating of ITV1 global phenomenon Downton Abbey demonstrates.
Speaking in The Times, and apparently comparing his new BBC2 period drama Parade's End to Downton, he said: "We're not serving purposes to make some cliched comment about, 'Oh, isn't it awful the way there's this upstairs-downstairs divide'. It's a little bit more sophisticated." Ooops!
On the same subject, he then told Reader's Digest: "We're living in a culture now that's revering, or having a nostalgia trip with, the beginning of the 1900s. Although Downton traded a lot on the sentiment in the last series... but we won't talk about that series because it was, in my opinion, f***ing atrocious." Ouch!
Well, the cast of Downton Abbey have bitten back.
If you follow the likes of Hugh Bonneville (@hughbon) and Dan Stevens (@thatdanstevens) on social networking site Twitter, they have changed their profile pictures to the Benedict Cumberbatch cover of Reader's Digest.

It's a subtle tease, but it's very classy. Nice one, Downton guys.
