Here’s a test for all you Cumberbitches: Do you prefer your Benedict modern or decked out in a Victorian cape?

Then again, who cares what he wears! The Oscar-nominated star looked positively dashing Thursday while filming an episode of Sherlock at Gloucester Cathedral in Britain.

PBS is keeping mum about future episodes of the mystery drama, but Cumberbatch and his Sherlock costar Martin Freeman may re-emerge this year for a one-off episode, Entertainment Weekly reports. Season 4 may come back in 2016.

Cumberbatch is up for an Academy Award for his starring role in The Imitation Game, which was also been nominated for best picture.
