'Doctor Who': Paris Jackson Wants To Take Over From Matt Smith As The Doctor

Paris Jackson, daughter of the late singer Michael, has thrown her hat in the ring to become the next Doctor Who.

Paris tweeted her desire to replace departing Doctor, Matt Smith, when the character regenerates in the Christmas special.

Posting a snap of the Tardis on Twitter, she wrote: “Omg I wanna be The Doctor. They said any age and gender, right?”

While it seems pretty unlikely she'll be battling the Daleks and Cybermen in the next series of the sci-fi show, the Daily Star claim she is being considered, as the wannabe actress recently signed with Hollywood talent agent Rick Yorn, whose clients include Leonardo DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz.

However, a BBC spokesperson remained tight-lipped on who they have lined up, telling the paper: “I’m afraid I can’t give you any idea on who they’re looking for and if Paris would fit the role.”

Matt Smith announced he was quitting 'Doctor Who' on Saturday, revealing he would leave during a special episode shown on Christmas Day, following the show's 50th anniversary special in November.
