Whoopi Goldberg is desperate to land a role in 'Doctor Who'.
The Oscar-winning star is a huge fan of the sci-fi series and has implored BBC bosses to cast her on the show, revealing it's something she would "love".
Whoopi explained: "I always hope when I come to England the BBC will say, 'Hey we want you to do something.' I would love that."
The 61-year-old star admitted there is something distinctly different about British television and she is eager to experience it for herself.
Whoopi told The Sun newspaper: "You have a different quality now on television.
"The way you guys have always done shows has always been the smartest and we've finally just figured it out.
"I like the idea of doing things the way y'all do them, you do some really fun stuff like 'Black Mirror' or, you know, I'm still dying to do 'Doctor Who'.
"'Ab Fab' women, they are spectacularly funny women, so you know I have all these dreams."
Despite her eagerness, Whoopi said she is still patiently waiting for the call from a British TV company.
She shared: "Maybe Channel 4 or BBC 1, 2 and 3, who knows? Maybe somebody will say, 'Hey stick around kid'."
Meanwhile, Whoopi - who has been the moderator of the daytime TV talk show 'The View' since 2007 - also revealed she has become more appreciative of her own success as she has aged.
She explained: "I'm up for having as good a time as I can in my life because I appreciate it. I appreciate it in ways I never realised I did."
