A short film starring Creator/BenedictCumberbatch, produced by the British film company Area17 and released through various digital means. (It's available on Website/YouTube and iTunes, for example.) The story follows two very different men: Joe is a young father who has been given unpleasantly life-altering news, while Charlie is a look-alike drifter for whom Joe's dilemma represents a chance to start a new life. Being for the most part a SilentMovie, the film accomplishes nearly all of the plot development through visual details and the characters' facial expressions, in addition to a few lines of dialogue. (See EmptyPromise and WhamLine below.)

Because the story is so condensed (the short is only about 10 minutes long) nearly everything that can be said about its trope content will have spoilers. If you're concerned about that, just go watch it before reading this page; very few spoilers will be marked from here on out. Seriously, it's available on Website/YouTube.

According to their official Facebook page, the producers are interested in turning ''Inseparable'' into a full-length film, and are in the process of obtaining funds for the project.

!! This short film provides examples of:
* BecomingTheMask: The main idea of the film; see DeadPersonImpersonation.
* BenedictCumberbatch: Quite a lot of him, if you hadn't already figured that out. It makes the movie.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: A very benevolently intended version.
* DisappearedDad: Joe to his unnamed son.
* {{Doppelganger}}: Charlie to Joe and vice versa.
* EmptyPromise: One of the few lines of dialogue:
-->It's gonna be all right.
* SecretlyDying
* ShortFilm: Very short, at only 11 minutes for the iTunes version.
* WhamLine: Some of the only spoken words are a sort of TroubleEntendre during a phone conversation.
-->[[spoiler:Charlie, I got the results. We need to meet.]]
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Joe's are. But you probably already know/guessed that.]]
