Alexander Vlahos may be playing Prince Philippe in royal drama Versailles – but it seems skipping back to 17th century Paris has given him a taste for time travel.
When Doctor Who’s Twitter account asked what fans were most hoping for from series 10, Merlin actor Vlahos had a bold suggestion…
That I get a guest role?

This isn’t the first time Vlahos has made his penchant for Doctor Who abundantly clear – in a recent interview with RadioTimes.com the actor said of his Versailles role;
“The only time I would ever get to play something similar to this is if I played the Doctor.
“The Doctor can be a kind man, a grumpy man; he can be sweet and generous and intelligent; the cleverest man in the room or the silliest man in the room at any given moment. And [Versailles’] Prince Philippe is complicated. He’s not one thing or another…”
Well, they do say perseverance is key.
