Susan Calman wants to be Doctor Who

Susan Calman is desperate to be Doctor Who.

The 43-year-old comedian recently starred on "Strictly Come Dancing", and despite being thrilled after Jodie Whittaker was announced to be the first female Time Lord, Susan would've loved to have been handed the opportunity herself.

Speaking to Doctor Who Magazine, Susan said: "After "Strictly", there's only one item left on my bucket list, which is playing "Doctor Who".

"I cheered as soon as Jodie Whittaker was announced. To show a generation of girls that the Doctor doesn't necessarily need to be a bloke is great."

"Doctor Who" bosses revealed earlier this week that the iconic BBC show may be moving to a Sunday night slot.

The long-running sci-fi series has aired in a number of different positions since its launch in 1963, but it always seems to return to its original Saturday teatime slot.

However, BBC bosses are seriously considering shifting it to the same time on a Sunday this year because they're sick of having to fit it around "Strictly Come Dancing".

A source said: "On Saturdays everything has to fit around "Strictly Come Dancing". Moving "Doctor Who" to a Sunday could make perfect sense. It is a serious option."

What's more, Chris Chiball - who has taken over as show runner from Steven Moffat - is reportedly planning to give the programme a revamp.

The insider explained: "Chris is taking "Doctor Who" apart to give it a revamp. The only things viewers will immediately recognise are the sonic screwdriver, the TARDIS and the theme tune."

Jodie made her debut in the show's festive special and will appear later this year for the full series alongside Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole and funnyman Bradley Walsh.

The actress has taken over the role from Peter Capaldi, who played the Doctor for four years.
