Cumberbatch talks Doctor Who

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show yesterday night. He was asked about rumours of a possible role in Doctor Who, maybe even as the Doctor.

Ross asked: “Would you like to do it?”

“No,” he said after pausing. “The rumours started because David Tennant is a friend of mine and he said ‘Going up for my old job?’, and I said ‘I don’t think I am’. They’re huge shoes to fill.

“One of the reasons is the Doctor Who job is so hard, because you are on the flask, you are on the school lunch box, you have to sometimes go on the school bus as Doctor Who on promotional tours. I like to keep the work on the set.”

See the interview in the video below. The Doctor Who talk begins around 2 minutes 45 seconds.
