Matt Smith: 'There's no room for me on Sherlock!'

Matt Smith has said that he doesn't plan to make an appearance in Sherlock.

The actor was recently linked to the BBC One show when co-creator Steven Moffat commented that he would cast Smith if the right part came up.

However, the former Doctor Who star said at the Wizard World Comic Com: "Listen, there's no room for me on Sherlock!

"They've got Benedict and Martin, that's quite enough peculiar Englishmen for that show. There's no room for another."

In January, Moffat said of casting Smith: "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.

"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."
