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.”
Matt Smith previously name checked Mirren as one of the stars he’d like to see on the show.
“Helen Mirren would be great in Doctor Who,” he said. Adding “also Eric Cantona and Vincent Cassel – he would be number one actually.”
Yes, she may be in the show, yes she can be a time lord, NO she cannot be the doctor!!
time lords have genders too, they don’t just swap sometimes when they regenerate. female time lords can actually choose their appearance, romana changed her appearance twice i think. The doctor cannot be female, he just cant.
They do swap sometimes. See the Doctor’s Wife. I do think it would change the tone of the show too much but I could be persuaded otherwise.
