Drown in Benedict Cumberbatch’s melted chocolate voice as he reads Keats beautiful poem Ode to a Nightingale.
In this photo montage created by YouTube user Stephanie Taylor we get to see the delectable Benedict in all his glory as he recites a poem that was inspired by a nightingale that had nested near the house at Wentworth Place that Keats aand his friend Charles Armitage Brown shared in the spring of 1819. Apparently he was so overcome by the bird’s beautiful song that he composed the poem in a single day.

His humour and eccentric way with words made Ivor a truly unique individual- often his stories are fantastical and absolute nonsense, with a twist of unnerving dourness.
His surreal observations are often seen as childlike, with stories that are often tinged with a dark naivety and whimsy.
