They might as well put a rainbow flag on the Tardis these days.
Dr Who, already gayer than than your average pint-size Hollywood megastar, is about to up its gay rating by recruiting Raquel off-of Coronation Street – also known in circles who watch stuff like Clocking Off as Dame Sarah Lancashire – as a baddie…
We’ve already got Catherine Tate joining as Dr’s assistant, Donna Noble, come the next series, which starts in the Spring, now it turns out that Sarah will be playing an evil businesswoman who takes on the Time Lord (mwa ha ha ha etc).
Sarah commented that she was delighted and it was a great honour and a lot of other stuff that was written by a work experience at her agent’s office.
Look out for that first ep. of the new series which starts – and we’re not giving much away – with an alien invasion in London. And you know how pesky they can be!
