Chris Evans gets 'Doctor Who' role?

Saturday, August 13 2005, 11:02 BST -- by Daniel Kilkelly


Doctor Who producers are trying to convince Chris Evans to make a guest appearance in the next series.

According to the Daily Star today, the radio DJ would star as the Devil in an episode called The Satan Pit, when the show returns for a second series next year.

Evans is the estranged husband of Billie Piper, who plays Rose Tyler, but the pair have remained friends and would not have a problem with working together.

"We've already got some great celebrities lined up for the next series, but having Chris Evans would be the icing on the cake," a source revealed.

"Having him as Satan would be a hoot and we're sure he'd relish the role. And we know Billie would find it a giggle."
