Star Trek star Patrick Stewart has agreed to do a major role in the next Doctor Who series after teaming up with the show’s Doctor, played by David Tennant, on stage. The two had starred in a production of Hamlet in the summer, and Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek, was offered the role, which is a two-parter, involving the Daleks.
“Patrick’s role is still being finalised but the plan is for him to play a renegade Time Lord called the Meddling Monk, who was last seen in Doctor Who in the 1960s. The Doctor thought his entire race was wiped out and gets a huge surprise to find another member of his species.”
