Whoopi Goldberg Is ‘Dying To Do Doctor Who’

Doctor Who has always attracted a lot of big names, from Michael Gambon to Kylie Minogue, but there are still plenty of celebrities out there wanting to take a trip aboard the TARDIS.

In a recent interview with The Sun, American actress Whoopi Goldberg spoke about her love of British television: 

“I always hope when I come to England the BBC will say, ‘Hey we want you to do something.’ I would love that. You have a different quality now on television. The way you guys have always done shows has always been the smartest and we’ve finally just figured it out.”

She then revealed that one of the shows she would like to work on is Doctor Who:

“I like the idea of doing things the way y’all do them, you do some really fun stuff like Black Mirror or, you know, I’m still dying to do Doctor Who.”

You may remember back in 2011, Matt Smith previously said in an interview with BANG Showbiz:

“Whoopi Goldberg would be a great companion wouldn’t she? Yeah, she’d be great.”

So could we expect to see Goldberg as a new companion? Or maybe she could be a Zygon in disguise or a member of the Gallifreyan High Council? Only time, as always, will tell.
