Everyone Wants Who!

Doctor Who just wouldn’t be quite the same if it didn’t have a few famous faces appear in guest roles from series to series.

Could Noel Fielding or Warwick Davis win roles in the next series of Doctor Who?Over the years we’ve had Peter Kay, Sir Derek Jacobi, Alex Kingston, Richard Wilson and Kylie Minogue and that’s just a handful of names, if we listed all the famous faces from the last 49 years we’d be here for quite a while.

So with a new year there are bound to be some new and important people who are expressing their interest to appear in the show. First up is star of the Ricky Gervais comedy Life’s Too Short Warwick Davis. Davis himself is a familiar face in the world of science fiction and fantasy having appeared in films such as Willow, Return of the Jedi, Harry Potter and even BBC’s Merlin.

Now the actor wants to play a villain in Doctor Who, surely it’s a role that he was born to play! But his ego will stay firmly out of the equation as he comments:

“I don’t want to play the Doctor, but a villain or something like that would be pretty good.”

And while Davis has ideas about Doctor Who villains, comedy creative man Noel Fielding, star of The Mighty Boosh and team captain on BBC quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks has formed his ideas of what the next Doctor should be like:

“Next [time] I think we need an androgynous, slightly dippy Doctor who gets everything wrong.”

Fielding also admitted that he would like to appear in Doctor Who as he is a fan of the show at the moment.

Could the future see the Twelfth Doctor played by Noel Fielding as he faces off against the Master played by Warwick Davis?

It’s not beyond the realm of possibility!

    I think I would die if Noel Fielding became the Doctor.

    … But I’d like to see Warwick in Doctor Who!

    If Noel was the next Doctor, Warwick the master, I’d boil up some some oil pour it into my ears while simultaneously gouging my eyes with a rusty spoon to stop the monstrousity from seeping into my brain. Sounds like Warwick is turning into his own parody while Noel fantasises at being in a good tv show, whose comedy doesn’t rely solely on surrealist nonsense

    I would love to see Fielding in the show. I think he would be a darn good Doctor.
    If not, then at least some kind of guest role.
    But consider him as The Doctor – he would deliver.

Tell us what you think!
