Awesome--I already liked him as an actor, and he just got a lot cooler in my book.

Doubly brave of Cumberbatch since self defense is often prosecuted over there.

Depends, can an 82 year old protect themselves from a 22 year old with a whistle?

She can beat him over the head with her Zimmer frame if he attempts to attack her.

The few successful UK prosecutions of people who attacked intruders who had entered their homes nearly all involved the fact that the intruders were attacked as they were attempting to run away.

You can't claim self defence in UK law when the person is attempting to run away from you.
