Liam Fox has admitted he'd like to play the Time Lord in 'Doctor Who'
Liam Fox wants to be the next Doctor Who.
The 'Emmerdale' star may be known for playing loveable mechanic Dan Spencer in the long-running soap but he has admitted he'd really like to show fans that he has the ability to adapt his talents by portraying the iconic Time Lord in the popular sci-fi series.
Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, he explained: "As an actor, I'd wan tot be Doctor Who, and I think so do most actors. But if I wasn't in 'Emmerdale', I'd want to be a producer - because I write as well and want to do a bit more of that."
And the 46-year-old actor certainly has his sights set high as he looks up to Tom Hanks as his "acting hero" and would love nothing more than to follow in his footsteps.
He said: "I'd say Tom Hanks because of his acting ability, but also because interviews he seems like a really top bloke. He seems kind of ordinary and isn't full of all the showbiz nonsense. But in this country, I'd say Timothy Spall. When I was a fat kid at school, I used to do impressions of him as Barry Taylor in 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet'. Those impressions were probably the start of my career."
