It has been announced that Nigel Planer, who is probably best known to most people as Neil the Hippy in The Young Ones, is to take the main role in the new live-action Doctor Who tour.
Planer will play a character called Vorgensen, a travelling showman who carries the story. The overall plot of the shows has been revealed also.
The character apparantly journeys the galaxy spreading tales of the Doctor's exploits and using his "minimiser" gadget he can conjure up any of the Time Lord's foes for his audience.
The tour begins on October 8th at Wembley Arena. Do you like the sound of this? Let us know below.
