“I’d give my eye-teeth!”

Actor, comedian and voice of supercomputer Mr Smith, Alexander (“Zander” to his friends) Armstrong has revealed in interview with Digital Spy that he would love to appear on-screen in Doctor Who or even  The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Sarah Jane Adventures' Alexander ArmstrongWhen asked if he would like to appear alongside Elisabeth Sladen and her band of teenagers, or even opposite Matt Smith, Alexander replied enthusiastically.

“Yeah, I’d love to. I’d give my eye-teeth to do that!”

When asked about his involvement with Series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures, meanwhile, Armstrong replied:

“This very afternoon, I’m heading back into town to voice more. I’ve done the first four episodes, which were great”

He was also able to hint on a few things coming up in the next series…

“Luke (Tommy Knight) goes off to Oxford University and there’s some intrigue surrounding that. There’s a nasty nightmare creature. And K-9 goes off with Luke – there’s a very sweet moment between Mr. Smith and K-9. They sort of admit their grudging respect for each other.”

Series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures is expected to air from late September/early October. Meanwhile, Alexander can currently be seen as one half of comedy duo Armstrong & Miller on BBC One on Monday evenings.

    looking forward to it and not just the Doctor and Jo guest appearances. have enjoyed all the series so far even if it’s technically more kiddy. it’s still doctor who and that works for me.

    Maybe Mr Smith could be represented as a some sort of hologram as the doctor did in Star Trek Voyager?
    A representation made up so that he could move around freely, thereby extending his involvement in the show?
