World War Who

WAR hero Sir Winston Churchill is all set for a new adventure — alongside Doctor Who.

The legend who led the Allies to victory in World War II will help current Doctor David Tennant.

Winnie joins Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie and William Shakespeare as historical characters met by the Time Lord since the series was relaunched in 2005.

Perhaps we can expect a stirring speech of �We shall fight them in the Tardis�.

But no date has been fixed for the cigar-smoking former PM to appear and it is not known who will play him.

Doctor Who finished its latest BBC1 run last Saturday and returns next year for four one-off specials.

A new series begins in 2010 but the Beeb is keeping tight-lipped whether Tennant will be back for that.

Plans to feature Churchill in a new Dr Who novel, Revenge of the Judoon, have been shelved.
