Benedict’s quotes from the article:

Before he became known to American auds for his roles in feature films such as “War Horse” and “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” Benedict Cumberbatch did a considerable amount of work in British television.

“I owe a lot to the BBC,” says the star of the “Sherlock” update. “I actually thought about changing my initials to BBC. They’ve given me some fantastic breaks.”

Although his work in American television is limited to a couple of joint productions like the upcoming BBC-HBO collaboration “Parade’s End,” he possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of U.S. shows and recognizes a renaissance in the business over the past 10 to 15 years.

“I was aware of American television, although in a very pop culture way,” says Cumberbatch, who noted that he grew up watching American TV shows such as “Knight Rider” and “Airwolf.” “There’s been a sea change over the past 10 years or so, with shows like ‘The Sopranos,’ ‘The Wire’ and ‘Breaking Bad.’ The list goes on. Hugely wonderfully talented people telling extraordinary stories on a big canvas.

“It makes the medium now utterly unique. That’s why a lot of filmmakers and theater people are going back to television, because you can breathe and develop stories over an arc, as opposed to a cookie-cutter approach. I think there is a revolution going on.”

5. Benedict Cumberbatch — What? Benedict Cumberbatch? The guy’s as goofy looking as his name. What’s to love about a pasty thin British nub with moppy hair and a dorky smile? I mean, besides the voice. The sly demeanor. The glimmery eyes. The impeccable cheekbones. His cerebral approach to his craft. Maybe it’s his keen fashion sense, or maybe it’s just the scarf. Or maybe it’s because he’s the best goddamn Sherlock in the history of Sherlocks. In real life, the man was once kidnapped and locked into the trunk of his car by six men in South Africa, and he smart-talked his way out of the situation. Maybe it’s his appreciation for life bleeding through that people are drawn toward. God knows it wasn’t Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which was a total bore. Maybe, oh, I don’t know. Maybe it’s just the man’s ass. Whatever it is, Benedict Cumberbatch is incredibly sexy almost in spite of himself, and to land in the Pajiba 10 looking like he does suggest there’s powerful forces at play in the soul of Cumberbatch, which makes him my favorite kind of Pajiba 10 entrant, a guy that will mind-f*ck you to ecstasy before he even removes your clothes. — Dustin Rowles

The second pic via the awesome Frisky who first alerting me about Benedict on Ukrainian press so I can go ask my friends in Russia about it. And the black and white one is extracted from PDF version which is courtesy of the great Sherlock_Series community on LJ. Sadly the issue seems out of print but I believe the lovely people from Sherlock_Series are working on getting the magazine for a proper scan.
