Cumberbatch stars in a five-part BBC series called The Last Enemy. In it he plays the character of Stephen Ezard, a mathematical genius with an obsessive-compulsive disorder that finds himself caught up in a political cover-up centered around a rogue batch of vaccine that is causing a deadly virus.
It’s my first contemporary drama and it’s a riveting story set around the poignant issues of state control and personal liberty. Its about unique people in a unique situation sparking off a massive political thriller.
