Izzard Throws His (Nice) Hat In

Comedian and actor Eddie Izzard has reportedly issued a "I’ll do it" statement to the BBC should they be looking for a new Doctor Who.

According to What’s On TV, the comedian – who is the star of popular drama The Riches in the US – the Daily Express reported that he said:

"I would accept the part if it was offered to me."

Speaking at a TV event in Los Angeles he added: "I think David is doing a great job in the role. He may become even more popular than Tom Baker, who I thought was the best ever Doctor.

"Tom actually put my name forward for the part when the BBC brought the show back four years ago."

Tom said at the time: "Eddie would bring an alien quality to the part. He is so mysterious and strange and seems like he has a lot of secrets", but the part went to Christopher Eccleston.

Very interesting – but would the BBC be willing – or brave enough – to give the iconic role to a popular comedian with a penchant for girls clothes?
