I think this is one of the most beautiful things in the special.
This is not even on the meta “Oh my God, it’s Tom Baker!” thing. Not really. It’s about the hope this gives for the Doctor.
The Curator is, IMHO, the last incarnation of the Doctor. He’s done all he can, seen all he can see. Now he’s Sherlock Holmes as a Bee Keeper. Instead of retiring from the action-packed life to being, like, the President of the restored Galifrey, he’s retired to Earth— his adopted home.
This is one last trip for him. It’s an extended version of the last twenty minutes of Journey’s End for him. Just think about how long he’s been in this form. He most likely regenerated into Tom Baker from Planet of the Spiders. So how long has he lived? Eleven has lived for two hundred years in his current incarnation without any real visible change in appearance. It’s possible the Curator has spent millennia in this incarnation.
And he’s a Curator. He collects things from the past. He remembers. He’s perfectly content not dashing about any longer. I like to think he watches the things his past self does, recalling the good times. He looks in on his companions in their own times. Since he’s on the slow path now himself, he can visit the Ponds without risking the destruction of the timeline. He and Jack and Barbara and Ian can meet up and laugh about watching the world pass them by very, very slowly.
The Curator is the Doctor’s reward for all he’s done to keep the universe safe.

I don’t think luck comes into it much. I was recently speaking to an old acquaintance who used to work at the RSC and remembers his first season with them (and, as a total unknown just out of drama school, he was recruited because of his talent alone - unlike some other actors cast in big parts around then largely because they were the son or daughter of a big star or had other connections) - she said that Stratford was buzzing about his talent. She also said he was one of the nicest, politest actors she has ever worked with, which has probably helped a bit, as well - not being an arsehole can be a real career advantage for an actor.



I’ve heard the “very little range” accusation lobbed at Freeman a lot and I disagree. He’s a quiet, unshowy actor who follows the internal, Stanislavskian method of living the character’s emotions from within, rather than impersonating other people. If he looks like he’s just being himself in every part, IMO it’s because he makes the character’s thought processes and feelings so natural and believable. I don’t need him to look radically different in every part he’s in - I just need to feel 100% convinced by the character. Which I always am.

Don’t often quote from comments in articles, but this was blackbroom talking about Martin Freeman in the Guardian’s review of Richard III, in response to an accusation that Martin had ‘limited talent’ and had gotten ‘lucky’ to be where he is now. (via missmollysolverson)

We have seen Martin in Sherlock, we have seen him in Fargo, and even if we had seen nothing else at all, we would KNOW he has talent. So very much talent. 

His acting style is somewhat understated compared to others - but that’s his strength. He is subtle. He has some mannerisms that you can pick up on (e.g. his restless hand gestures), but they vary between characters. Comparing them shows you the distinct differences between these people he portrays. There is so much going on under the surface. But you have to look for it, so to appreciate him the audience needs to be smart. 

When I gushed about both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin playing Richard III, a friend of mine (who is a semi-casual fan of Sherlock) said “Not to step on your toes, I know how much you think of Benedict, but there is NO WAY he’ll be better than Martin”. I reluctantly agreed with her. Benedict will be great as Richard III - but BETTER than Martin? No, probably not. 

There is just so much contained anger underneath his performance (I think he said as much in an interview), and the audience picks up on it. 

tl;dr - Martin is amazing, there’s no luck involved, rumor mongers need to shut their pie holes.
