Will the Doctor be able to resist Kylie’s cyborg-hotness? I’m assuming Kylie’s character will be hot, of course.
Dr. Who is the longest-running science fiction series in the world – over its 40-year running, 10 different actors have played the leading man. And now the show can add a Kylie Minogue appearance to its impressive history!
Kylie will join the British sci-fi drama as a sexy cyber-woman for a special Christmas episode; shooting will take place in July. I sure hope she seduces lead actor, David Tennant.
I read that Kylie’s stylist, who I am assuming is gay, encouraged her to take the part. Dr. Who is actually very gay-friendly; one of the show’s characters, Jack Harkness, is bisexual and flirts with everyone. He was also popular enough to earn his own spin-off, Torchwood.
It actually turns out Jack is from the 51st century, making him an “omnisexual,” who views categorizing sexual orientation as “quaint.” I need to start watching this show!

More on Kylie’s acting career and what Dr. Who‘s actually about after the jump.
A BBC insider said, “Kylie jumped at the chance to be in the show and is really looking forward to acting again.” Her appearance on Dr. Who will mark Kylie’s first foray into acting in a long time. She’s probably best known on screen for her role as Charlene on the Australian soap Neighbours.
But I remember her as ass-kicking Cammy on the horrendous/amazing Street Fighter movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme!
Ah, Kylie. I love it so much. Thrust-kick!
Anyway, Dr. Who is a big deal in the U.K. – I’ve seen bits of the new series (this one began in 2005 and is huge on BBC) that airs in the U.S. on the Sci-Fi channel, but it’s a serious cult show, which I totally feel.
As I understand it, the show follows The Doctor, a super-smart alien who goes back and forth through time with his friends solving problems. He travels in his time machine, the TARDIS, which looks like a British call box.
The Doctor can also regenerate his body into a new form if he’s about to die, which conveniently allows writers to explain the many different actors who’ve played the character! Sci-fi is great.
