Mini Doctor Who Sketch on Tonight's the Night!

A new mini Doctor Who sketch is to broadcast on the final of John Barrowman's Tonight's the Night talent show. Read on for further details:

If you're missing the monsters and mayhem that Doctor Who delivers then tune into Tonight's the Night, presented by Captain Jack himself, John Barrowman!

John's BBC One show helps ordinary people live out their performing fantasies for real and true to its aim of making dreams come true, Tonight's the Night has run a competition giving one viewer the opportunity to take part in a special Doctor Who scene, working with the Doctor Who production team, and shot on the set of the Tardis. The scene will star the winner alongside show host John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness.

Viewers over 18 were invited to submit an application featuring a photograph of themselves in a home-made alien costume, along with information about their alien, such as where it's from and its characteristics. The entries were a fantastic mix ranging from fearsome to funny but all of them were imaginative, eye-catching and full on! Over the next three weeks viewers of Tonight's the Night will see a parade of aliens and John Barrowman, Doctor Who casting director Andy Pryor and a team of judges will be selecting the best.

The top ten aliens will be required to face the judges - assuming they have faces - and may be assessed on vocal ability, movement and quite literally, star quality. Three finalists will then undergo one further series of alien orientated challenges, but only one will win this once in a lifetime experience.

The winner will film a scene in the Tardis to be broadcast on May 23rd. John Barrowman was delighted to make a dream come true for one lucky Doctor Who fan, commenting, "This is a fantastic opportunity and I can't wait to see the winner experience performing on the set of Doctor Who."

The final of Tonight's the Night will broadcast on Saturday 23rd May at 7:20pm on BBC One.
