The Associated Press reports that actor and outworlder Benedict Cumberbatch married Earth female Sophie Hunter on Saturday, forever tying him to our strange and wonderful planet.

"Benedict and [human woman] Sophie were married yesterday surrounded by their close friends and family," Cumberbatch's publicist told the New York Daily News on Sunday. "It was a magical day [for the telurian and her unearthly groom]."

According to USA Today, the starman and his bride exchanged vows at a quiet church on the Isle of Wight.

Hunter, an accomplished theatre and opera director, first taught Cumberbatch about the miracle we earthlings call love after meeting him on the set of 2009's Burlesque Fairytales.
