Kylie Minogue is reportedly set to return to the small screen as a cyberwoman out to snare Dr Who on the British television show’s Christmas special.
The News of the World said filming would start in July on the Dr Who special which could revive the Australian pop singer’s TV career.
“Kylie jumped at the chance to be in the show and is really looking forward to acting again,” the newspaper quoted an unnamed BBC insider as saying.
Minogue made her name as Charlene in Neighbours before leaving the Australian soap in 1987 to concentrate on her pop career in the UK.In recent years, Minogue made a brief return to her television roots when she guest-starred in the popular Australian comedy series, Kath and Kim.
Far from the suburban adventures of Kath and Kim, Dr Who is a science fiction series depicting the adventures of the Doctor, who travels through time in a phone box known as the Tardis and fights foes, the most famous of which are the daleks and the cybermen.
In 2005, the BBC resurrected the series, which originally ran from 1963 to 1989.
Former teen pop star Billie Piper featured as Dr Who’s companion, Rose Tyler, in the revived series but has since left the popular show.
