Gillian Anderson for Doctor Who Role?

Is X-Files star Gillian Anderson set to appear in the 2010 series (commonly known as Series 5 or Season 31) of Doctor Who?

Press reports indicate that the attractive actress – surpisingly only 40 despite having seemingly been around for years – is top of Doctor Who producers list of possible stars for a single episode appearance…

“Gillian obviously has a massive sci-fi following and it’s felt that it would be a major coup to have her appear in Doctor Who.

“The team behind the show are keen for the next Doctor to have lots of new enemies and Gillian would be a glamorous and impressive addition to the list.

“The Rani would be a perfect role for her as the character used to be regarded as one of the Doctor’s most deadly opponents.”

Of course talk of the Rani is a little silly – there can be little interest in resurrecting a flat, two-dimensional renegade Time Lady who shares a name with a Sarah Jane Adventures character.

An appearance by one of the hottest women in sci-fi is another matter entirely of course, especially if this is only half a rumour, and Anderson is in fact lined up as the visibly mature companion to young-looking Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor.

Failing that, why not make Rani Chandra herself the companion of the new Doctor…?
