Last thing we saw of that show was everybody thinking your ace detective was dead. Anything you can tease about what’s happening when it [Sherlock] returns?
There’s a reunion and there’s an explanation and there’s a marriage and there’s a new villain on the scene. There’s an awful lot to enjoy in the three films we’ve made of it. And trust me, they’re films — they are really richly detailed and you don’t go away feeling unsatisfied. There’s so much in all of them.
I’ve seen the first two and they’re terrific. I haven’t seen the third yet, but I knew when we were doing that one it was going to be really special. They’re all very different and they all hold their own.

What’s it like playing the Doctor? “Everything changed. It’s all consuming – and that affects the rhythm of your life. Now, however, it’s settling down a little.” What can we expect from the Christmas episode? “I can’t tell you. It was a great shoot – a sad one for me, but I think it’ll be a fitting send-off and a fitting introduction for Peter.”
Any regrets? “None. I think if I was going to choose to spend a couple of years in anyone’s body, why not live it as the Doctor? He’s going to have more fun than almost anyone else alive.”
