The man behind Moriarty, Andrew Scott, is the latest actor to address talk that he may be in line for the next Doctor.
He told Flicks and the City in a video interview: “Well it’s a very flattering thing to be involved in all those discussions, but one has to wait to be asked those things.”
He adds: “They’re very secretive. I know Mr Moffat very well so he’ll keep his cards close to his chest for as long as possible.”
In related news, Matt Smith’s Doctor will battle with Andrew Scott’s Moriarty as part of a stage production tonight.
The Radio Times reports:
The Audience, a one-off sequel to hit West End show The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, will form part of an event at London’s Apollo Theatre tonight (Monday 1 July) to raise money for two autism charities.
The tale sees the Time Lord enlisting Boone’s help in an attempt to foil a plot by Moriarty (the villain viewers loved to hate in BBC1’s Sherlock) to disseminate a computer virus which would destroy people’s ability to understand metaphors (a common effect of autism) and thereby their capacity to create art and culture.
As he embarks on his mission for the Doctor, Boone asks permission from Her Majesty the Queen to seek help from secret service computer expert Q.
