Doctor Who signs up thinking man's crumpet

Beeb butters up viewers with Good stuff

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

In a flurry of hyper-drive, telephone box powered activity, the Beeb has announced yet more guest stars for the forthcoming, much-awaited fourth series of Doctor Who.

Hurrah, we say, as everyone's favourite OBG (Oldie, But Goodie) Felicity Kendall will be appearing in the show as Lady Clemency Eddison.

Besides from that, former Blackadder actor, aka the Duke of Darling, Tim McInnerny will also make an appearance on the show.

Filming has already begun on the next series, which will hit our screens in 2008, with Catherine Tate teaming up with David Tennant as the Doctor's latest sidekick.

Beeb producers said that the Time Lord's adventures will include him dropping in on old enemy The Ood, which is a race of squid-like humans.

There will also be an episode where the time-travelling hero will meet up with legendary crime scribe Agatha Christie. What a hoot.

Dr Who exec producer and lead writer Russell T Davies said: "Visiting Agatha Christie has been on my wish-list for ages now, and for the Doctor, it's a real meeting of minds."

Earlier this week we learned that Sir Ben Kingsley was being lined up to play classic baddie Davros - creator of the Daleks - in the next series of the Time Lord's capers through the outer reaches of the BBC canteen.

But let us not forget that before we get to all this oozing, glorious British talent, Aussie delight Kylie will be on hand to give everyone all over the world a very special Christmas indeed. ®
