Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Sing Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” with David Gilmour Live on Stage
Around here, when we talk about Benedict Cumberbatch, we usually talk about his knack for reading classic texts–Kafka's Metamorphosis, Melville's Moby-Dick, a poignant letter by Alan Turing, even passages from a Guantánamo prisoner's diary. But today we're putting another one of his talents on ...

It was truly ground breaking. Chase down a mountain, achieve orbit and land a probe on it - Armageddon Style!
The ESA gave the world a ticket to ride with a front row seat. Intrepid mission full of firsts!
Salute to the scientists, engineers and tax payers who made it happen!

Stop telling me to 'get over' Brexit – that's not how democracy works
Democracy is about much more than simple rule by majority. It requires freedom of speech, it protects the rights of minorities and it confers upon them the right to oppose
"It’s DEMOCRACY get used to it." So said a tweet in response to an impassioned debate between myself and David Buik, the prominent city commentator who is a Brexiter friend of mine (I still have one or two of them even if the relationships have frayed). The aforementioned Twitter user blocked me when I politely suggested that they had a rather shaky understanding of what democracy actually means.
