We’ve heard recently that Benedict Cumberbatch has ruled out any future appearance in Doctor Who, either as Time Lord lead or as a guest. Well, it seems that Matt Smith isn’t going to be in Sherlock either, scrapping the dreams of many fans desperate to see a Moff-over.
(Although let’s face it: with Matt no longer the Doctor it was never going to happen, was it?)
Fans at the Wizard World Con recall that Matt insisted he wouldn’t be sharing a screen with Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
Listen, there’s no room for me on Sherlock! They’ve got Benedict and Martin, that’s quite enough peculiar Englishmen for that show. There’s no room for another.
In fairness, Sherlock also has Mark Gatiss, adding a third oddball Brit to proceedings.
Steven Moffat has previously indicated that Matt Smith might find himself in Sherlock - should a suitable role come along.
But let’s face it, Matt Smith doesn’t need Sherlock – he can go on to bigger and better things, can’t he?
