Bionic Woman Makes Appointment with Doctor Who

And let's hope for her sake, it all nets out better than the short-lived NBC reboot did! Michelle Ryan, who of course starred as EastEnders' Zoe before attempting to fill Jaime Sommers' shoes stateside, has been tapped to guest-star on a Doctor Who special premiering this spring on BBC One. In the Easter special, which is (perhaps ironically?) titled "Planet of the Dead," Ryan will play Lady Christina de Souza, a mystery woman who joins the Doctor on an unexpectedly dangerous bus tour. "I'm a huge fan of Doctor Who and very excited to be joining David Tennant and the Doctor Who team," Ryan says in a statement. "It is such a fantastic show." "Planet of the Dead" is the first of four Doctor Who specials scheduled to air in 2009. Guest-starring alongside Ryan is Lee Evans, who is described by the BBC press release as "one of Britain's best loved and biggest comedy stars." And really, who am I to argue? Source here

The report cites sources as saying that the show was actually privately axed last week, but NBC has yet to confirm or deny the report. to read more got to:
