Helen Mirren on 12th Doctor
Helen Mirren has responded to being listed as one of the candidates for 12th Doctor.
On her recent odds of 25-1, she said: “Oh, please — I would put much longer odds on it than that.
She added: “But I think it’s absolutely time for a female Doctor Who. I’m so sick of that man with his girl sidekick.
“I could name at least 10 wonderful British actresses who would absolutely kill in that role.’’
This isn’t the first time Mirren has been associated with the show. In 2011 she was quoted as saying: “I would like to play the new female Doctor. I don’t want to just be his sidekick.”
