Cut and pasted from the Radio Times Website:

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has dismissed reports that Benedict Cumberbatch is to play the villainous Master on the sci-fi series. But he then added, as a quick afterthought: "But who knows what could happen in the future..."

Moffat also told RadioTimes.com about plans for the forthcoming series of Doctor Who. Asked whether there would be a large story arc running through the episodes, or if we could expect self-contained adventures, he said: "As ever, there’s a bit of both. But this time we’re moving closer to stand-alone stories. At this point, we’re not planning any two-parters. So, every week is going to be like a different mad movie. We went quite 'arc' last time and we’re going stand-alone this time around".

As for his other hit BBC1 series, the detective drama Sherlock, Moffat had this to say about series three: "Mark [Gatiss] and I have planned it out. We haven’t started writing it yet because I've got God knows how many episodes of Doctor Who to get sorted first. But the way it works with Sherlock is that we starve you and then we give you a short burst and then we starve you again. It’s worked so far, we’re not going to change it."

Damn! I was really looking forward to seeing Benedict and Matt act alongside eachother.

Sadly it did sound too good to be true. And yet I'm sure Moffat would like to involve Benedict... and I also wouldn't put it past him to lie about it when he does! :-))
