Rock legend David Bowie is set to star in the next series of British TV series Doctor Who, playing an alien. Producers of the BBC show have targeted the singer because of his “great other-worldly looks” according to reports. British newspaper The Sun claims the 60-year-old will clash with actor David Tennant’s Doctor in a two-part episode of the show, which will be aired next year. A source tells the newspaper, “Bowie said he’d be interested as long as he’s not subjected to hours of disfiguring make-up.”

    This is the greatest thing I’ve ever heard. Can’t say enough what a fan of this show I am. It’s had its failing moments. Like BUFFY, there are some episodes that are misfires which kind of embarass the series overall. But man, when this show works, it REALLY works. No wonder it’s such a phenomenon overseas.

    The season to watch is season two. The most complete and most engaging arc. Though if anyone IS interested in checking out this fine series, let me recommend setting your tivo for the following:

    If you see these available on Tivo by episode name, snag em…

    SEASON ONE, EPISODE TWO — “The End of the World”

    Unlike the wonky pilot episode, this clever and fun episode best introduces new viewers to the world of Doctor Who and it’s two main characters.

    SEASON TWO — “The Girl in the Fireplace”

    SEASON THREE two-part episode — “Human Nature” and “Family of Blood”
    Co-starring Jessic a Stevenson, who is from Simon Pegg’s TV series, SPACED

    Seasons one and two are on USA DVD, season three is available on

    You have NO idea how much the idea of David Tennant squaring off against David Bowie makes me… seriously. I’m about to Chilly Down with the Fire Gang.
