This isn't...

Not quite an anagram. Benedict Cumberbatch in fact has three "e's" as well as not containing a "y", and some other mistakes.

So its like how Vivian Darkbloom is an anagram of Vladimir Nabokov?

Whovian Alert!

Okay, so Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who, which also creates situational irony because the Doctor and Torchwood have very different points of view on, well, pretty much anything alien.

Sorry, that's just what popped into my head when I heard anagram.

Another Ex:

One example of an anagram can be found in the second book of the Harry Potter series entitled, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Here is the textual evidence in Chapter 17...

"He pulled Harry’s wand from his pocket and began to trace it through the air, writing three shimmering words:


Then he waved the wand once, and the letters of his name rearranged themselves:


It is at this very moment that Harry discovers the true identity of the mysterious Tom Riddle. Not only does it create a moment of suspension, but it sets the tone for the rest of the series as Harry must uncover more about Lord Voldemort's past in order to know how to defeat him.
