Matt Smith is willing to entertain the idea of a mash-up between 'Doctor Who' and 'Sherlock'
Matt Smith is "open" to the idea of a 'Doctor Who' and 'Sherlock' crossover.
The 30-year-old actor - who has been playing the Doctor since 2010 - thinks a mash-up episode of his sci-fi series and Benedict Cumberbatch's 'Sherlock' could be interesting but is unsure how it would work.
He said: "I'm not averse to it. I'm kind of open. I'm like yeah, because I just think they would find each other so remarkable.
"And the Doctor with Watson, he'd be like, 'Cheer up mate. It's not that bad, I know you're really clever, but there's an alien over there, let's go and talk. He's got wiggly bits on.' "
Discussing his own plans to stay in the franchise, Matt admits he will continue as long as it is enjoyable for him.
Asked how long he intended to stay, he told Collider.com: "Fifty years. Fifty million years. No, I take it year by year, you know? See what comes. I love working for Steven Moffat. I love making the show, it's unlike any job I'll ever have, and I'm proud going into the 50th year, so."
