COMEDIAN Susan Calman has revealed her next goal is to appear in Doctor Who, after she became the ninth competitor to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

Calman and her professional partner Kevin Clifton lost out in a dance-off with singer Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez.

The actress and writer tweeted that she had just “one burning ambition” left after taking part in the dancing show.

“To be The Doctor. Or be in Doctor Who. Or, to be honest, just be allowed anywhere near Doctor Who in any way,” she tweeted.

Calman said she had “loved every minute” of being on Strictly but joked that “normal service” would resume on her Twitter feed on subjects such as cats, Helen Mirren and Batman.

Calman’s father Sir Kenneth Calman founded Cancer Support Scotland and she used the attention garnered from Strictly to urge people to donate to the charity, pointing out that today has been dubbed Giving Tuesday.

Calman said: “Giving Tuesday is a very easy way to donate to Cancer Support Scotland in the run-up to Christmas. Unfortunately, cancer does not stop for Christmas and by making a donation you will be helping to provide complementary therapies and counselling for cancer patients, their families and carers.”
