Hugh Grant to appear in 'Doctor Who'?
The 46-year-old actor turned down the chance to play The Doctor a few years ago because he thought the revival of the series would be a flop, but he is keen to take on a role as a villain because it would be more "fun".
He said: "I was offered the role of the Doctor a few years back and was highly flattered. The danger with those things is that it's only when you see it on screen that you think, 'Damn, that was good, why did I say no?' But then, knowing me, I'd probably make a mess of it.
"I'm in talks about a one-off role. I'd prefer to be a baddie. They're always more fun."
