Smith Denies Cumberbatch Rumors
Matt Smith has throw a bit of water on the rumor that Benedict Cumberbatch is in talks to be the Master for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
“I know Ben and I’ve not heard anything about it. But he’s a wonderful actor and a mate. … I think he’s a bit busy being a Star Trek villain, and he’s Sherlock Holmes of course, so he’s a busy man,” Smith says.
That doesn’t mean that it couldn’t happen. It just means that Smith hasn’t heard anything about it from the production team.
