Stewart To Guest Star In Doctor Who? - Comments and Message Board

(In any case NATURALLY as some aptly serious investigator/rights activist/eco-warrior-type, or whatever might spur viewers to make themselves so)

Well there's a coincidence… I’d recently had an odd, random thought about Patrick Stewart - the thought of him playing Doctor Who. Years ago I was a big fan of both Dr Who & Star Trek. Getting older in the course of their new serieses & re-runs, they’d both become for me substantially long lost interests. My ‘favourite’ incarnation of Dr Who isn’t the one I’d mostly seen at the height of my being enthralled by the programme, but came to be the very first one there was – the one played by William Hartnell. When he quit the role, he himself thought that there was no-one else at the time who could play The Doctor but Patrick Troughton – who indeed got the job. Now it IS a children’s programme, and it’s no disrespect to all the great actors who have played The Doctor since these first ones that it’s become steadily of less interest to me. Besides anything true of the ‘developments’ in the show itself, I’ve gotten older. Chewing on that notion which recently came to me, though, I thought how of all the 'dream performances' I could imagine or care to see, there’d be perhaps none more than seeing Patrick Stewart playing Doctor Who. Maybe, for me, there’s no-one who seems closer to having something that William Hartnell’s ‘original’ had… That said, there’s no thought or suggestion here of his replacing David Tennant in the TV show. Not at all. I’m just wondering if David Tennant’s doctor might be up for meeting an older version of himself… Or if maybe Hollywood could pick up the idea….
