“One thing at a time,”; Cumberbatch said of stepping back into the shoes of Sherlock to shoot a new season. “My main focus is going to be on that and then [awards season] is just sort of a wonderful burst of manic crazy fresh air in the midst of it all.”;

Pregnancy rumours got a boost when Hunter showed up to the film festival wearing a loose-fitting maxi dress and posed for photos with her purse covering her stomach.  The couple are expected to walk the red carpet on Sunday for the 72nd annual Golden Globe awards, where Cumberbatch is nominated for his role in The Imitation Game.
