Wow, two Doctor Who announcements in two days. First Marth Jones news, now Kylie Minogue will be in this years Christmas special. This is pretty cool. I am not a fan of her singing per se but being an Australian pop star, that’s what she is know for. I have seen her act a few times and she’s not bad.  Rumors of this team-up have been floating around for a while and I guess they really were true.

Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue will join the cast of British science-fiction TV drama Doctor Who for a special Christmas episode, the BBC said on Tuesday.

Britain’s public broadcaster said Minogue, 39, would play a “major lead role” alongside Dr Who actor David Tennant.

The hour-long episode, Voyage of the Damned, will start filming in Cardiff, Wales, in July.

“It is an incredible thrill to be joining David and the entire Dr Who production for this year’s Christmas special,” said Minogue.
