Benedict Cumberbatch Steven Moffat Mark Gatiss

It’s the role that turned him into an international phenomenon, but Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he initially came close to turning down ‘Sherlock’.

The English actor, who is currently juggling new fatherhood with playing the lead in ‘Hamlet’, admitted in an interview with CNN’s ‘Talk Asia’ news program on Friday (September 4th) that he had quite a few reservations about accepting the role of the ingenious detective because of the massive fame he thought the “populist role” would bring. He certainly turned out to be correct in that assumption!

When asked how the new setting might change Sherlock’s character Moffat said, “Sherlock is a little more polished. He operates like a Victorian gentleman instead of a posh, rude man. He’s a lot less brattish.” But as for Dr Watson, being back in Victorian Britain will cause Martin Freeman’s character to be ‘more uptight’, according to Moffat.

Sylvester McCoy Rubbishes Suggestion That 'Doctor Who' Can Be Played By A Woman


Sylvester McCoy Doctor Who Steven Moffat Karen Gillan Paul McGann

Former ‘Doctor Who’ actor Sylvester McCoy has dismissed the idea that the time-travelling hero could be played by a woman, and that he’s “not convinced by the cultural need” for the role to be re-cast in such a way.

The 71 year old actor, who played the seventh incarnation of the Time Lord between 1987 and 1989, finished his stint in the role in the 1996 movie in which he was replaced by Paul McGann, believes that giving the lead role to a female would upset the chemistry in the scripts.
