Jodie Whittaker could be set to leave her role as The Doctor – and now Whoopi Goldberg has revealed she’s keen to star in a new American version of Doctor Who.
The legendary comedian and actor said that she wants to step into TARDIS as the first US Doctor, having previously wanted to be the first woman to play the role.
Whoopi told The Daily Star: ‘I wanted to be the first female Doctor, but they have one.
‘I love the idea of an American Doctor Who’, she added, saying: ‘I’m still trying to do it.’
Whoopi has made no secret she’s a big fan of the sci-fi series in the past.
Speaking on David Tennant’s podcast in 2019, Whoopi said she had been keen to be the first female star to play the role before Jodie.
Whoopi also said at the time that she wanted to take the series stateside, saying: ‘We don’t have a Doctor Who. We don’t have that character who is travelling through dimension and time, and being an observer – sometimes a hindrance, sometimes a help.
‘The idea of that just so made me happy.’
