Oxford roles for Sherlock and Hermione; SUNDAY SHORTS.
SCREEN stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Emma Watson have been handed new roles - as visiting fellows at Oxford University.
Sherlock actor Cumberbatch and Watson, who made her name as Hermione in the Harry Potter series, are among 11 notable non-academics to have accepted appointments at Lady Margaret Hall.
Pet Shop Boys frontman Neil Tennant, film director Beeban Kidron and former children's laureate Malorie Blackman have also accepted visiting fellowship roles at the college.
Cumberbatch, who recently earned positive reviews for his role in Hamlet at the Barbican in London, has shifted to the centre of political debate with a number of impassioned comments on the refugee crisis.
Visiting fellows are normally appointed for three years, and are encouraged to attend debates and perform at the college.
