Fry denies 'Doctor Who' rumours
There has been widespread speculation about Fry appearing in and writing an episode of the cult show since 2005.
Fry, who was speaking at a press launch of new ITV1 drama Kingdom today, said he unfortunately did not have the time.
He said: "They asked me to do a series and I tried, but I just ran out of time, and so I wrote a pathetic letter of 'I'm sorry I can't do this' to Russell Davies."
Fry made a guest appearance in a special webcast version of Doctor Who in a story called "Death Comes to Time," in which he plays a Time Lord, the Minister of Chance.
Fry is certainly busy. He added that he is currently writing a film script for Peter Jackson, with veteran broadcaster David Frost as executive producer, for a movie about the World War II 'Dambuster' raids. In addition, he is finishing a pantomine script for Kevin Spacey for London's Old Vic theatre, and filming a documentary for BBC Two on HIV and Aids.
