Whoopi Goldberg has revealed that years ago she asked BBC bosses to give her the lead role in Doctor Who.

The 63-year-old actress said: “The idea of that just so made me happy. But they were like, ‘Um, no.'”

Jodie Whittaker eventually became the first female Time Lord and 13th Doctor in 2018.

“Whether it was climate change, hand computers or being able to move around in different dimensions.”

Tennant himself played the Doctor from 2005 to 2010.

Goldberg, who has starred in films like Sister Act and Ghost, also lived out her sci-fi dreams as Guinan on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

She told the Radio Times in 2017 that she wanted to star in Doctor Who and was hoping someone would offer her a cameo.

“I always hope when I come to England the BBC will say, ‘Hey we want you to do something.’ I would love that”, she told The Sun, while speaking about her love of British TV.

“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.
