Rumor has it that Patrick Stewart may be headed to another science-fiction franchise next year.

As reported by the Daily Star, Stewart may join Doctor Who next year, and could become a regular character on the popular science-fiction series.

According to the article, Stewart has been offered the role of a rival Time Lord, called "The Meddling Monk." The Meddling Monk was last seen on Doctor Who in the second and third seasons of Doctor Who in the 1960s, in the The Time Meddler and The Daleks' Master Plan episodes. The Meddling Monk was played originally by Peter Butterworth.

Stewart, a big fan of Doctor Who, would like to take the part if his schedule will permit it. According to the Daily Star, the BBC is so eager to have Stewart, that they will save his character for 2010 if necessary. Sources claim that "Patrick has been formally approached to star in Doctor Who and is very keen to do it."

Stewart has expressed his desire to be in Doctor Who before, as reported by "I would love to be in Doctor Who," said Stewart at the time. "I am doing some R.S.C. work with David Tennant next year so who knows? If we gel on stage we could on screen."

Only time will tell if The Meddling Monk will return to Doctor Who.
