David: I'd make the Doctor darker

David Harewood has been linked to the role of Doctor Who

David Harewood has admitted it's unlikely he'll be the twelfth Doctor, but he would love to take the character in a different direction.

The Homeland star has been rumoured to be in the running to take over from Matt Smith as Doctor Who, but told Entertainment Weekly he would be surprised if it happened.

He said: "It's only rumours but it's amazing to be attached to such an iconic role. It would be extraordinary if the BBC were to make me the first black Doctor Who, it would be extraordinary. But I'm almost scared to make any comment whatsoever."

David, who appeared as a character in Doctor Who in David Tennant's final episode as the Timelord, talked about what he would want his signature look and personality to be if he did land the role.

He said: "It would definitely be something extremely sharp. Something extremely sharp and tailored.

"And not to kind of put too dark a pun on it, but I would make him darker. I would like to make this guy a bit of a bada** if I was to do it."
