'Homeland' David Harewood on 'Doctor Who': 'It'd be hard to turn down'

By
Homeland star David Harewood has admitted that he would be interested in replacing Matt Smith on Doctor Who.

Smith will depart the BBC sci-fi drama this Christmas, with Harewood telling ITV's Loose Women that playing the next Doctor would be an "exciting" prospect.

Homeland star David Harewood tells Digital Spy that another big twist is coming in Homeland and teases that one of the characters will be in the firing line.


"It would be really difficult to turn down," said the actor. "It's very exciting. It would be very exciting if the phone rang."

However, Harewood added that he "doubt[s]" he will be offered the iconic role.

"Get the BBC on the phone," he joked. "We should start a pressure group or something!"
