London: Funnyman Russell Brand wants to be part of hit science fiction TV show `Doctor Who`.

The 39-year-old actor wants to jump into Matt Smith`s shoes after the actor announced he is quitting, reported Daily Star.

"I would be like a Tom Baker one, like a sort of long scarf, flouncy, wistful, quoting occasional poems, kicking Cybermen in the nuts. I would just travel through time... Carry on up the wormhole," Brand said.
