Rumour: Benedict Cumberbatch Coming to Doctor Who
Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is ruling science fiction and fantasy right now — he's playing Smaug in The Hobbit, and he's coming to blows with Spock in the new Star Trek movie. But could he make it a hat-trick with a crucial role in Doctor Who?
That's the rumor being spread by Britain's ever-reliable tabloids. The Daily Express claims that Cumberbatch will join the show as the Doctor's arch nemesis, the Master, in time for its 50th anniversary next year.
