Beard Campaigners back Brian Blessed for Dr Who


Radio Times

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with the decision of Peter Capaldi to step down from the role of Dr Who, it is more than time for the first full time hirsute Time Lord to appear.

There has never been a hirsute Dr Who, although the late John Hurt did appear with a beard as the Doctor with in several transitional episodes

The campaigners say that Brian Blessed with his booming beard would be ideally suited to the role. More in the Tom Baker than the Peter Capaldi mould but with the added gravitas of a beard. The actor is on record as saying that he would love to play Dr Who.

BLF organiser Keith Flett said, of course a female or black actor, or indeed both, would be the first preference after so many decades of pale, male Time Lords. But there is also a case for a hirsute Dr Who, and Brian Blessed would be just the man if that was to happen.
