Doctor Who has always attracted big names from the world of theatre, film and television, all secretly desperate to get a role on the legendary show. Recently, another unlikely celebrity announced their love of Doctor Who: Lee Mack.
“Yeah. Genuinely my big thing and the reason I’m in The Miser is because I always ask myself one simple question when I’m offered anything: Will it get me nearer to being Doctor Who or further away?”
“I genuinely do. Because it’s the only show we [my family] all absolutely watch, we don’t watch it on catch up, we watch it on TV. It’s always been my favourite show and I am on a mission to get on Doctor Who.”
When asked who he would like to play, Mack replied honestly:
“I’ll be a hand. A green thing coming on the screen, just to say I’ve been in it. I’ll do anything. If I’m in a play they might go: ‘Oh, he’s an actor, let’s get him in Doctor Who. I think very simplistically.”
