Warwick Davis would love to be Dr Who

The excellent chap, Dave Bentley, over at The Coventry Telegraph Geek Files has news on another actor who would love to be considered for the next regeneration of the one true Time Lord. That's right Willow, Wicket, The Leprechaun, the one and only Warwick Davis. Here's what Dave has to say.

ACTOR Warwick Davis said he'd love to be the new Doctor Who and have his own special TARDIS.

The 38-year-old star, who plays Professor Filius Flitwick in the Harry Potter films, was among sci-fi celebrities at The Memorabilia Show at the NEC, Birmingham, this past weekend.

He said: "I want to be in Doctor Who. I would kill to replace David Tennant and become the next Time Lord.

"I had a great idea: Doctor Who is going to change, regenerate, but something goes a bit wrong. For just a couple of episodes it would be me as the Doctor, they go in the Tardis and inside it's not vast, it's tiny and they all bang their heads!"

Davis played the lead in Willow and in the Leprechaun film series, Reepicheep in the TV versions of the Narnia books and was the dwarf Nikabrik in this year's The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

I do like Warwick's idea of being the Doctor for an episode or two. He's a great actor and it would put a nice spin on things. Head on over to read the rest of the article and Warwick's memories of playing Wicket in Return of the Jedi.
