Robert Carlyle Speaks!

At last, the reasonably famous but-not-too-famous-to-play The Doctor actor Robert Carlyle has spoken about his desire to play the most coveted role on TV.

He goes to lengths in an interview with The Daily Record to point out that he hasn’t (now or ever) been approached by the BBC to play The Doctor, but if he were…

"I would treat it with respect and regard it properly, but I would have to be approached about it first."

You can read the full interview here where they discuss his breakthrough films such as Trainspotting and The Full Monty and his current roles in 24: Redemption and the upcoming The Unloved directed by and starring Samantha Morton – a film about her life – in which he plays her father. Of great interest to Who fans is the fact that Carlyle came to the British TV viewing public’s attention in Cracker where he played a murderer who killed DCI Bilborough – played by Christopher Eccleston!
