David Bowie to appear in Doctor Who?

'Evil alien abductor' in two-part special

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

David Bowie will appear as an "evil alien abductor" in a two-part Doctor Who special, the Sun reports.

Bowie, 60, has reportedly agreed to "cross swords" with the Time Lord after being approached by Who chiefs impressed with his 2006 outing as an inventor in The Prestige. There are no details of the storyline, apart from the suggestion that Bowie's character will get on the wrong side of the good Doctor by kidnapping writer Agatha Christie.

The singer's spokesman denied he was set to hit the small screen next year, but a Doctor Who insider said: "Bowie said he'd be interested as long as he's not subjected to hours of disfiguring make-up." ®
