Benedict Cumberbatch asks fans not to film Hamlet

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has pleaded with fans outside the Barbican theatre in London not to film his stage performance of Shakespeare's Hamlet.

In a video shot outside the stage door, Sherlock star Cumberbatch told a crowd of supporters about "cameras and red lights" he had spotted in the audience.

"It may not be any of you here but it's blindingly obvious," he continued, adding it was "mortifying".
