Patrick Stewart In The Specials?

A number of unreliable sources, including the Daily Star, have reported another rumour, this time about Patrick Stewart, apparently set to 'beam across from Star Trek to Doctor Who'! The start of this rumour could be that he is acting alongside David Tennant in the newest version of Hamlet, originally just for the Royal Shakespeare Company, but moving across to London soon, but bear in mind that all performances are already sold out! He is most well known for his roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the starship Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Professor Xavier in the X-Men films. He is highly regarded for his commitment and work at the Royal Shakespeare comepany. Lately, Stewart has said that is he intrested in appearing in Doctor Who, so could this story have some truth behind it? They say that they will bring him in for next year's (2009's) adventures, but could become a recurring character. The BBC have offered Stewart a role as a rival Time Lord called the Meddling Monk, who was orginally seen in the 1960s, but little is known about him. This could be a new way of bringing the Master in again, but something a little different. They say that they really want him to be in it, and if not the 2009 specials they would save the character for the new series in 2010.
An insider close to the Star Trek team said yesterday: “Patrick has been formally approached to star in Doctor Who and is very keen to do it.”
It seems he looks like he wants to do it, but will he? What do you think? You can read the full article from the Daily Star here, but be warned as the site does contain pornographic material.
