Dr Who to meet Dawkins?

Dr Who to meet Dawkins?
Richard Dawkins is to have a cameo role, playing himself, in the final episode of the new series of Dr. Who.

Series producer Russell T Davies, who declared himself an ardent atheist and a fan of Dawkins' work, said: "He was just brilliant. He has brought atheism proudly out of the closet. When he came on set people were falling at his feet."

Professor Dawkins has another connection with Dr Who. His wife – the actress Lalla Ward – starred in the series between 1979 and 1981. She played Romana, an assistant to the fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, during his time in the Tardis.
