Cumberbatch and Sherlock Holmes author are cousins

The Sherlock co-stars announced that they were parting ways after 16 years together in December, with Freeman saying it was "amicable".

In an interview with Daily Telegraph's Stella magazine, Amanda claimed it was hard reuniting on screen with her ex. Not only because the wait for proper new episodes has been so damn long, but also because this may be the last time we see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprise their roles.

"There was no hostility, really".

Genealogy detectives have discovered that Benedict Cumberbatch, the British actor who portrays Sherlock Holmes in the PBS television series, is distantly related to the author who created the iconic character more than a century ago. "But we're just not sure".

She added: 'It is sad and it is upsetting because you think you're going to be with someone forever, but you either do that or you break up.

Abbington said the lack of time spent together - with Freeman filming The Hobbit franchise and US TV series Fargo overseas - was partly responsible for the end of the 16-year relationship.

She said the pair occasionally questioned whether they were doing the right thing working together but that the answer was always "yes". "We've been really lucky to make it such a clean break, especially for the kids".

SHERLOCK fans were left distraught after Mary Watson was killed off in last night's dramatic series opener.

"As he's evolving he loses sight of what he is letting go of, which is this very cold, results at all cost, all about the end-game, rather than how he gets there, and who he tramples over".

2017 won't even be a day old by the time the new series begins, but the return of Sherlock is already shaping up to be one of the TV highlights of the year.
