Bowie to be Doctor Who space oddity?
Another day, another celebrity linked with a guest appearance on Doctor Who.
Today it’s the turn of pop icon David Bowie to be reportedly lined up for a role in the BBC’s hit sci-fi show, with the producers keen to make use of his ‘other-worldly’ looks in a forthcoming two-part special.
The singer, who had a hit with the song Space Oddity’ will play an evil alien who abducts the crime writer Agatha Christie, if the rumours are to be believed.
One legend of the entertainment world who will definitely be taking a trip with the nation’s favourite time lord is the veteran actress Joan Collins, who will play one of the Doctor’s new foes, a scientist called the Rani.
Fans of the show will also have been given a boost by the news that Russell T Davies has confirmed that David Tennant will not be leaving the title role midway through the next series, despite recent rumours that he may be moving on to pastures new.
