When asked who should win the coveted award, Burke said:
I’ll say Doctor Who. I met Tom Baker when I was a kid, because my mum grew up with him in Kent.
We bumped into him at the supermarket and she said to him, ‘Tom wants to be an actor.’ And he said, ‘Oh, don’t be an actor. Be a movie star!’
A sterling recommendation from one of current Doctor, Peter Capaldi’s, former co-stars! The British Academy Television Awards are tonight Sunday at 8:00pm on BBC One. Will you be tuning in? Do you agree with Burke’s assessment? Sound off below!
