Speaking to BuzzFeed to promote the film this week, Cumberbatch was asked what his superpower would be and his answer was very humbling.

He told us that if he could have one slogan it would be “the NHS rules” and added: “I'd be a doctor. Like, a real doctor that works in the NHS, that's who I'd be. Like, the real heroes, doctors and nurses. I think anyone who works in medicine has superpowers, anyone who works in the NHS has superpowers. It's a miracle, it is magic.”
