It looks like there won’t be enough room on Baker Street to accommodate Matt Smith. In a recent interview, the former Doctor Who star said that he does not expect to appear on Sherlock, despite the speculation and hopes of fans. Smith is clearly no stranger to working with Stephen Moffat, who was the show runner for his tenure as The Doctor and is currently running the operations on Sherlock. Moffat stated that he wouldn’t rule out a possibility of Smith being cast on the show, but the role has to right. “If there was a perfect part for him, there's no rule against it,” said Moffat. “We wouldn't want it to be stunt casting, because stunt casting doesn't work, so it would have to be just because he was overwhelmingly right for it. I love working with Matt. He's a phenomenal actor. I'd jump at the chance to work with him again. I don't know how likely that is to be on the set of Sherlock.” At Wizard World Comic Con, Smith directly addressed the question when asked: “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.” Despite what Smith says, I like to think Moffat could find room for him in the universe of Sherlock. While we’re at it, I don’t think Doctor Who fans would mind if Benedict Cumberbatch found himself playing a villain in an upcoming series. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
