Web-bound rumours persist this week, suggesting that David Tennant’s Hamlet co-star and major name of two Hollywood franchises Patrick Stewart wants to appear in Doctor Who.
This is of course nothing more than a repeat of Stewart’s earlier indication that he fancies a part in the show. Now though, it seems that Stewart is interested in developing a working relationship alongside Tennant.
And there is an interesting role mooted for the Jean-Luc Picard/Professor Charles Xavier actor:
There will be no facial prosthetics or heavy make up
There’s a "killer" costume
Patrick is keen to play someone who is "not the good guy for a change" (although the character is "not all bad")
It’s a significant enough character to be either moved, removed or revived later, depending on his availability
He’s keen to work again with David Tennant and "have the relationship evolve"
Sounds pretty interesting, wouldn’t you agree? Of course, whether any of this will transpire is another matter entirely… fun to speculate though!
