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.”

Which is shame, as there’s a companion role coming up soon and Mirren would certainly make for an interesting change.

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.”
