“There’s a rumour that Benedict Cumberbatch, of the BBC’s Sherlock and Tinker Tailor fame, is being considered for a turn as the Master in Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary season. According to The Express, Steven Moffat, the showrunner for both Who and Sherlock, is trying to get his two leading men together.”
If it’s true, I predict all of fandom having a collective freak-out of joy in 3 … 2 … 1 …
well, matt smith and benedict cumberbatch are like, best friends
… but really i’m not actually excited about this. that’s boring fucking casting. i mean, could you pick a dr who character more like sherlock?
when is cumberbatch going to get to be happy in something?
