In the 'difficult' second episode of The Cosmic Shed, Andrew, Laura and Ben talk about The Imitation Game and hear from Benedict Cumberbatch, who stars as Alan Turing in the film.
Andrew interviewed Benedict about preparing for the role, why he loves playing scientists, and the importance of creating a fascination for science through films.
He also mentions Sherlock, and a few scientific stories he'd like to see in the cinemas. Andrew then challenges Laura and Ben to pitch ideas for films based on scientists, and suggests that the story of Watson and Crick may be quite a hard sell for Hollywood.
