Brace Yourself: Matt Smith Could Join Benedict Cumberbatch On Sherlock

Let's all speculate irrationally and draw a bunch of insane conclusions and make a fuckton of gifs about this random comment from Steven Moffat about possibly putting The Doctor on Sherlock!


Moffat, the Dr. Frankenstein of shows with British actors we all like to go completely nuts over, dropped this little bomb during a recent interview:

"I love working with Matt. He's a phenomenal actor. I'd jump at the chance to work with him again. I don't know how likely that is to be on the set of Sherlock. If there was a perfect part for him, there's no rule against it. We wouldn't want it to be stunt casting, because stunt casting doesn't work, so it would have to be just because he was overwhelmingly right for it."


OMG HE DIDN'T SAY NO EVERYONE GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME NOW GO BATSHITCRAZY WITH YOUR GIFS. The slash fic from this soundbite alone is going to be amazing. Simply amazing.

I don't need to tell any of our esteemed Jezebel Doctor Who experts that Smith auditioned and failed to land the role of Dr. Watson that eventually went to Martin Freeman. So it would be pretty cool to see him on this show, let's face it.

Uhh, plus there's this:

It's not enough that Matt Smith ruined the Doctor... now he has to go ruin Sherlock as well? UGH! Why are some things that Moffat does so good (the doctor dances, most of sherlock) and other things so awful (almost all of Doctor who since he took over as show runner). #nerdproblems
