Dame Helen Mirren has been speaking to the Daily Star. But that’s not the only shocking piece of news. No, apparently the award-winning actress wants to star in Doctor Who as the first female Doctor.
The Stars quotes Mirren as saying: “I would like to play the new female Doctor Who. I don’t want to just be his sidekick.”
I hope she actually said this.
Every time I read this when it comes up on my dash I think the same thing:
As much as I love Helen Mirren, I can’t see it.
I’d love a female Doctor.
Preferably one that runs all over the place and jumps off of things and is silly and such.
Though casting a 66 year old Helen Mirren would kinda be getting back to the roots of old Doctors from way back in the day…Though even Hartnell was only 50-something…
With the way Moffat is taking this show…there’s no way they cast Mirren as the next Doctor.
Guest star? No doubt a possibility. Companion? eh. Maybe. Doctor? No.
