Noel Clarke on Paterson Joseph

Mickety-Mick-Mick-Mickey Smith actor Noel Clarke has been quizzed about the possibility of a black actor – namely Paterson Joseph – taking the role of Doctor Who.

With David Morrissey and Robert Carlyle linked to the role, Clarke reckons that theres no reason why Paterson Joseph shouldn’t be the Doctor.

"I was the first black companion. If he is the first black Doctor, then good luck to him," said Clarke, who plays Mickey Smith in the time-travelling series.

"[The Doctor] is an alien life form who changes and transforms and there is no reason why it can’t be a woman, an alien, a man, a fellow. So whoever it is, good luck to them."

Good luck indeed!
