Oscar-Tipped Firth in Who Plea

The King’s Speech star Colin Firth – who most of you may recognise from the Bridget Jones movies or even the BBC One adaptation of Pride & Prejudice – has revealed that he would like a part in our favourite show!

Taking part in a Twitter interview, Firth also spoke about how he would like to play a very particular type of villain…

“I’d never rule out a part in Doctor Who or Torchwood – especially Doctor Who.”

“I’d also love to play a villain like Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes.”

While Moriarty is all sewn up in Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ Sherlock, there is currently an opening for a particular sinister Time Lord in Doctor Who. Perhaps some strings could be pulled for the Golden Globe-winning, Oscar-tipped, midlife crisis-avoiding respected actor to find his way into the Whoniverse in some capacity…?
