Could Sherlock’s Moriarty Be Doctor Who?
So, microphone in hand, they took the next hansom to the premiere of Sam Mendes adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and did indeed challenge Moriarty himself, Andrew Scott, about rumours that he has cast covetous eyes on role of the Twelfth Doctor:
Well it’s a very flattering thing to be involved in all those discussions, but one has to wait to be asked those things.
He certainly should be in consideration for role even with the baggage of Moriarty after all he is a man of good birth and excellent education, endowed by nature with a phenomenal mathematical faculty…no, wait that’s Moriarty again.
They’re very secretive. I know Mr Moffat very well so he’ll keep his cards close to his chest for as long as possible.
Check out the video of the ‘Napoleon of Crime’ where he discusses his potential return to Sherlock, his memories of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and his upcoming performance on stage with Joanna Lumley in two short plays by Harold Pinter.
