Martin Freeman says he'd be open to a new series of Sherlock

The BAFTA Award-winning actor played Doctor John Watson in the BBC mystery crime drama, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, for four seasons from 2010 to 2017, and he would never say never at the possibility of a return.

He said: "To be truthful, I don't know. It's never a completely shut door, but I don't know.

"Personally, I'm a fan of things being finite. I like things ending. I think it's natural for things to end.

"But I'm also a sucker for a good idea and a good script. If something comes up that persuades us all - it would have to be us all - then my door would always be open."

Since his stint on ‘Sherlock’, Martin hit the big screen when he was cast as Everett K. Ross in Marvel’s 2018 superhero film ‘Black Panther’.

Martin, 51, will once again reprise his role in sequel ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’, which is being released in cinemas worldwide from today Friday (11.11.22).

Speaking about his return to 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' and his role as Everett, he tells Saturday's (12.11.22) 'The Jonathan Ross Show': "It has a sort of familiarity I guess. I'm in the film a lot less than Danai [Gurira] is to be fair. No spoilers. I'm in it for a hell of a five minutes. It's nice, I like coming in at that level of, he comes in, does his helpful thing and then departs. He has a laugh."

'The Jonathan Ross Show', Saturday, at 10.00pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
