Last night’s BAFTA awards were a veritable who’s who (heh) of Doctor Who, despite the show itself not being nominated in any category. The likes of Jenna Coleman, Maisie Williams and Noel Clarke were all in attendance where Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ Sherlock took home the Radio Times readers choice award.

Speaking to the Radio Times on the red carpet, comedian Lee Mack revealed that he is desperate to land a role in the series:

“I’m desperate to get a part in Doctor Who. I really am. I’m using tonight as a shameless way to get into Doctor Who, it would be literally the only time my children would be impressed by anything I’ve done in life.”

The Not Going Out star revealed he’s watched every episode of the post-2005 series:

“We’ve literally sat down and watched every episode back-to-back, from Christopher Eccleston to Peter Capaldi. Just finished, hence this look of tiredness. Back to back for the last four weeks.”

For the full interview where Mack reveals his favourite Doctor and more on the future of Not Going Out, head over to RadioTimes.com.
