The BBC has confirmed that Kylie Minogue will be joining the Doctor Who cast in a major lead role in an hour-long Christmas special to be broadcast in December 2007 on BBC One.
Kylie will be joining David Tennant for the episode, Voyage Of The Damned, which starts filming this July 2007 in Cardiff. The production team has also confirmed that the storyline will follow on directly from the ending of series three where viewers witnessed The Titanic crash through the Tardis walls.
The episode has been written by Doctor Who's Executive Producer and Head Writer Russell T Davies.
He told SFcrowsnest, "We are delighted and excited to announce that Kylie Minogue will be joining the Doctor. Doctor Who Christmas specials are always a joy and we feel very confident that this will be the most ambitious and best Christmas episode yet."
Kylie added, "It is an incredible thrill to be joining David and the entire Doctor Who production for this year's Christmas special. Doctor Who enjoys a unique history and it is going to be very exciting to be a part of that."
Full details are currently under wraps with more information to be announced shortly. The fourth series of Doctor Who will be back in Spring 2008.
