Benedict Cumberbatch has answered the prayers of the masses!

The British heartthrob posed in a Mr. Darcy-themed photoshoot, inspired by none other than the 1995 miniseries "Pride and Prejudice."

Photographer Jason Bell captured this steamy photo of Cumberbatch unbuttoning his white shirt while wading in the water. His hair is slicked back and his eyes are piercing. Our eyes are collectively thanking Mr. Bell for the spicy shot of the 38-year-old "Sherlock Holmes" actor.

The photo campaign supports the TK Maxx Give Up Clothes for Good charity, which collects clothing donations at TK Maxx stores around the UK for later sale in Cancer Research stores. Proceeds go towards raising life-saving funds.

I think it's safe to say we're all thanking Cumberbatch for this charity project.
