Additional Details

Peter Kay, one of Britain's best-loved comedians, is the latest star to be cast in the eagerly awaited series two of Doctor Who.

However, Peter will be swapping his trademark gags for more serious acting, when he steps into the role of the cold and powerful Victor Kennedy later this month.

Russell T Davies says on the casting: "We are delighted to welcome Peter onboard the TARDIS!

"Casting of Peter came about after he wrote me the most brilliant letter to say how much he'd enjoyed series one of Doctor Who. From that point on we started talking about a guest appearance.

"However, this is not a comedy turn. Peter is a versatile actor who has appeared in Paul Abbott's Butterfly Collectors and The Secret Life of Michael Fry."

Peter will appear in episode ten of the new BBC ONE series, penned by Russell T Davies.
