benedict cumberbatch doctor who peter capaldi gi 'Doctor Who': Benedict Cumberbatch 'excited' for Peter Capaldi's Doctor

Count “Sherlock” star Benedict Cumberbatch among those ticking down the minutes until Peter Capaldi’s first season of “Doctor Who” begins.
The actor, who starred with Capaldi in “The Fifth Estate,” spoke to the Big Issue about his colleague appearing in the legendary British series. “I’m very excited to see him in ‘Doctor Who’,” he says. “He is a class act, Peter, and a great actor.”
Perhaps one day the two can even reunite with a crossover between “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock.” Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards for now, according to “Sherlock’s” Martin Freeman, who says he hasn’t heard of any plans.
