PETER PAN star Bonnie Langford is to be Dr. Who's new girl In the next BBC TV series, it was announced today

Television executives are hoping that some of Peter Pan's immortality will rub off on the programme, which has the threat of BBC-1 controller Michael Grade's axe hanging over it.

The bubbly 21-year-old — who was not even born when the first Dr. Who episode went out — will be assistant number 20 for the current Time Lord, Colin Baker.

It is hoped that her appearance in the series will Influence the decision on whether the autumn series will mark the famous Tardis's last journey. Mr. Grade delayed the series because he thought the previous one had grown -tired and unimaginative", and featured too much violence.

He said it would be watched closely this time to decide whether it should continue. Bonnie Langford, currently starring In Peter Pan at the Aldwych Theatre in London was chosen for the, Dr. Who role for her "sparkling" personality.

In Dr. Who she will help to develop the humour of the programme. She thinks the doctor is overweight he gets irritated at her singing in the Tardis.
