Moore could always play davros - wouldn't even need the mask.

However, if Sean Connery, Daniel Craig or Pierce Brosnan want to appear, them I'm all for it.
Daniel Craig in a one-off appearance as The Master. That would be scary good.

Re: Roger Moore wants to do Who!!

Well if the Beeb were able to get Moore for DW, it would no doubt be for something like a Christmas special, or perhaps use him as the villian who causes a regeneration.

But as he sad he's interested in being in either DW or Sherlock, the BBC might be able to get him at a resonable price. For some big name actors producers might think they are out of theri price range when considering actors for parts and don't even consider them. Sometimes the actor has to make the first move and express an interest.

I think that might have been the case with Whoopi Goldberg on TNG, she apprached the producers about appearing on the show, and she was willing to appear at more or less the going rate for a guest star on the show. Rather than an apperance fee her star power (at that time) would demand.

I reckon Roger Moore and Adam West are interchangeable. Not sure how thats relevant here, but I felt it needed to be said.

He's only worth a reasonable price at most - he's been trading on Bond for a long time now and most of his recent stuff has been voice work and cameos. He's more of a personality than an actor these days.

I don't watch Sherlock but I have no interest in seeing him in Who.

Re: Roger Moore wants to do Who!!

Much anger in you there is

I'm hoping you mean get the Master to regenerate rather than actually killing an actor off!

Yeah I think Moore would be great in a Christmas special.

...or sherlock...maybe

This week Mark Gatiss tweeted about Roger's performance in "The Man Who Haunted Himself", the 1970 fantasy drama directed by Basil Dearden. "I have such a soft spot for the film," said Gatiss.
Roger's twitter account cheekily responded: "thank you. I might be equally wonderful in Dr Who or Sherlock if asked!"
Gatiss responded simply: "My life is complete! Will be [in] touch."

Maybe it's time for Rassilon to regenerate?:
Shouldn't he actually be the incarnation before the last one we saw onscreen?

In coincidence corner, Rog has already played Sherlock Holmes in a tv movie, Sherlock Holmes in New York in 1976.

I'm afraid I agree with those who say he's now a parody of himself. His HIGNFY appearance was embarrassing and he lacks the panache that Shatner brings to self-parody. Whether he was playing himself or a fictional character, I think he would totally take me out of either Who or Sherlock.

But Benedict Cumberbatch is supposed to be John Simm's successor as the Master.

Well, I assume he also didn't mean the Master would literally regenerate into Roger Moore but would rather be played by him.

Yes but HIGNFY is v different to an actual acting role. He seemed pretty good from what little I saw of him in that Saint trailer?

Re: Roger Moore wants to do Who!!

Seeing Roger Moore nowadays reminds me that I have a wooden fence that needs creosoting. I think my fence would be cheaper and perhaps a more expressive actor.

Not the best actor but one of the most thoroughly charming charismatic and downrlight likeable action stars in movie history. Love him as Bond. Even when the films are shit, I enjoy watching him.

I didn't realize people hated him so much, maybe they could tie him in with Rose somehow and seal the deal.
