Cumberbatch on The Jonathan Ross Show

While rumours of Sherlock star Benevolent Cucumberpatch Benedict Cumberbatch were quickly shot down by executive producer and all round brainy box Steven Moffat it hasn’t stopped chat show host returnee Jonathan Ross from indulging his fan boy tendencies on last Saturday’s edition of The Jonathan Ross Show.

Cumberbatch took time out from promoting the Hollywood adaptation of the BBC’s adaptation of John le Carré’s Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy to correct the rumours of surrounding him taking over the role of the Doctor from his friend David Tennant and any future appearances on the show… see 2:25 onwards.

It’s a fair argument for not getting involved in the other industry that comes with being the Doctor (something that former Doctor Christopher Eccleston had great difficulties dealing with) but wouldn’t we all like to see Cumberbatch Doctor Who? If not for the brief fangasm of seeing Sherlock and the Doctor sharing the screen together but to see such a good actor play a role a million light years from the Great detective of Baker Street?
