Lee Evans to star in Doctor Who

Guest role in Easter special

Lee Evans is to guest star in the Doctor Who Easter special.

He will play a character called Malcolm, ‘whose life becomes connected to the Doctor's under extraordinary circumstances’ in the episode, titled Planet of the Dead.

Bionic Woman star Michelle Ryan will also appear, as mysterious Lady Christina de Souza, who joins the Doctor on a bus trip which takes a ‘detour into danger’, the BBC said.

Planet Of The Dead is the first of four Doctor Who Specials which will air in 2009, before Tennant leaves the role to make way for Matt Smith.
