Lily Cole is to join Doctor Who

MODEL Lily Cole is to join Doctor Who - as a mysterious sea creature.
It means Karen Gillan's reign as the show's most stunning redhead could be over. Lily, 22, will appear alongside Time Lord Matt Smith and his assistant Amy Pond, played by Karen, in the new BBC1 series later this year. The episode, set in the 1600s, will see the Tardis landing on top of a pirate ship. Lily told TV Biz: "It is a great script and a fun character and I am glad to be involved." An insider said: "Lily's a big fan of the show and jumped at the chance to appear. She will play a sea creature in an episode based around a well-known tale. It's a real ocean adventure."

Hairy encounter for Time Lord Matt

The Doctor has been involved in dozens of close shaves - but now he's in a whole heap of stubble. The usually smooth-skinned actor Matt Smith sports a tatty beard for an episode of the next series of Doctor Who to be screened later this year. But the screen star has come clean and admitted he used a fake beard for the scenes because he did not have the time to grow one of his own during filming. Smith, 27, said: "It was a glued-on beard. I wouldn't be able to grow a full-on beard like that in time." The beard is seen briefly in a trailer for the series, in which he also appears to be chained and wearing a straitjacket. Scrubbing the false fur from his face proved to be a nasty business, he said. "They had to remove it with a substance smelling like white turps," said Smith.

More rubbish... :-)
