Doctor Who at Gay Pride bash

Eff-em-inate ... how a camp Dalek might look

Eff-em-inate ... how a camp Dalek might look

Torn between loyalty to Pride London - But you DON'T want to miss Doctor Who?

GAY Pride chiefs are to screen the final episode of Doctor Who in Trafalgar Square ? to keep some of the show’s most devoted fans at the festival.

The eagerly-anticipated finale is broadcast on June 30 ? the same day as the annual celebration in London.

Doctor Who is a huge hit in the gay community and organisers feared thousands of camp followers would stay at home to watch the climax of the BBC1 saga.

David Tennant, 36, who plays the Timelord, was named The Sexiest Man in the Universe in 2006 by leading gay newspaper The Pink Paper.

The sci-fi show’s bisexual Capt Jack Harkness, played by gay actor John Barrowman, 40, is another massive draw for fans.

He is to talk about his role at Gay Pride. Festival boss Jason Pollock said: “We got the idea of showing Doctor Who on a big screen at the end of our main stage show in response to demand.
