Yesterday we told you how new Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch suggested how he would only appear in Doctor Who if he was offered a big part, namely the Doctor, as a small part wouldnt be good enough after being the lead in his own show.
Moffat though has spoken out to the BBC about how he won't be taking on the role of the Time Lord any time soon. When asked if Cumberbatch could take on the role, Moffat replied:
"No. There is no vacancy. Matt Smith is the Doctor and he's been an astonishing success and - who knows - maybe he'll never regenerate again."
The statement suggests that Matt will possibly be in the role for years to come and is likely to delight and infuriate fans of the show in equal measures.
