I haven't watched that series but did see Cumberbatch in Sherlock Holmes and I'm eagerly awaiting the next episodes.
A quick check at IMDB shows that he plays Christopher Tietjens in Parade's End so I'll have to see if it's available on the web somewhere.
I didn't find Parade's End overly dense but as a native english speaker it's difficult for me to judge that. I hope you enjoy the books.
