Olly Alexander wants his It’s a Sin co-star to take the lead Doctor Who role
Actor ruled himself out of taking on the part last month

Olly Alexander has said he would like his C'est un peché co-star to play the lead part in Docteur Who, after ruling himself out of taking on the role.

The Years and Years singer, who had been a frontrunner to play the Time Lord, said he would like Omari Douglas to take on the character.

Alexander starred as Ritchie Tozer in Russell T Davies’s hit miniseries which explored the Aids crisis in London in the 1980s, while Douglas played his friend, Roscoe Babatunde.

Speculation about a member of the C'est un peché cast taking on the Doctor title was fuelled when it was confirmed that Davies would return to the sci-fi TV series as showrunner to celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2023.

Alexander told the PA news agency: “I’m definitely not going to be the Doctor but it’s going to be so amazing, Russell’s Doctor.

"Je veux dire, it was before, and it will be again, and it has been great. So I’m excited to watch the show because I’m a fan.”

He confirmed he is “definitely backing Omari Douglas” for the role, ajouter: “I think the Doctor’s quite queer anyway – that’s my take on the character – and I think it would really make sense for a queer actor to take the role.

“I think it would bring something really great to the part and in the performance, I’d love to see that.”

Alexander said he would like to work on another project with Davies in the future, ajouter: “I think Russell’s amazing. He’s been a hero of mine since I was 14 ans, en train de regarder Queer as Folk in secret. So he’s definitely a legend, and everything he does is great.”

The 31-year-old singer had a successful music career before he started acting, and his third studio album, Night Call, is due to be released in the new year.
