Martin Freeman has claimed that Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes would make “the perfect fictional team”.
The former Office star appears as Dr Watson in the BBC’s new Sherlock Holmes adaptation. The drama is written and produced by Doctor Who boss Steven Moffat and speaking to What’s On TV, Freeman said:
“I don’t feel as passionate about Doctor Who as Stephen does, but I’ve enjoyed watching it more since being a father.
“We met Matt Smith while filming Sherlock in Cardiff because the Baker Street set is next to the [Who] set. It was strange seeing Sherlock Holmes and The Doctor together. They are the perfect fictional team.”
Sherlock continues this Sunday at 8.30pm on BBC One.
