Sheridan Smith

Sheridan Smith is desperate to land a role in 'Doctor Who'.

The 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' actress admits it's her "dream" to appear alongside leading man Matt Smith in the BBC One sci-fi drama, and fight the evil Daleks.

It's every actress' dream to be the new assistant - fighting the Daleks. I'd kick their a***s.

She said: "It's every actress' dream to be the new assistant - fighting the Daleks. I'd kick their a***s."

Meanwhile, Matt - who plays the eleventh incarnation of the Time Lord - has promised the new series will feature "one of the greatest monsters in the history" of the show.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I do think we've got one of the greatest monsters, especially during my tenure on the show, but I think in the history of it, it's a real cracker.

"We've also got some great guests stars. We've got Lily Cole, Hugh Bonneville, David Walliams, so it's really exciting."

Elsewhere, the time-travelling Time Lord and his faithful assistant Amy Pond - played by Karen Gillan - are going to be faced with some "seismic choices" about their relationship, which could rock the foundations of their friendship.

Matt added: "The Doctor and Amy are going to be faced with some really harrowing and seismic choices about their relationship and who they are, and why they are important together."
