Craig Charles Interested in Who Role
Red Dwarf star Craig Charles has said he would be interested in becoming the next Doctor.
Charles told Purple Revolver: “Yeah, having a black Doctor Who would be double cool. To be asked by the Beeb would be great, its such a classic show.
“But I think there would probably be too much cross-over with Red Dwarf, as we’ve got a new series lined up next year.”
He added: “Also, I would have to grit my teeth a bit, because the thing about Dr Who that always annoyed me was the graphics are crap.
“But, even if I can’t be the first black Doctor, I am the first black man to own a house on Corrie, which is as good a claim to fame.”
