Helen Mirren Wants Doctor Who Role

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.”

I’m going to start a “fuckyeahwhoeverrunstheofficialdoctorwhotumblr” because

flawless individual

I read it and was like fuck yeah! And then all the commenters were like, “But if there’s someone who’s not a white man, it’ll ruin the series.” Fuck you, people. I’m all for more diversity in the role. If it starts with an older white woman and transitions to, say, Richard Ayode, and the Doctor starts reincarnating as all sorts of different people, I’d be a happy lady.

helen mirren would get me to watch doctor who ABSOLUTELY, but god damn richard ayoade would make me a DEVOTEE.

    I really like what she’s wearing. It’s a more youthful style, but still totally age appropriate. She looks amazing.
