[edit]

DOCTOR Who is going to face an enemy even worse than the Daleks - in the shape of David Beckham.

In the new series, aliens intent on conquering the earth use the waxworks at Madame Tussauds to terrorise the capital.

A lifelike dummy of the 29-year-old England captain will lead a horde of modelled celebs in a raid on Downing Street. These could include Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts. Harrison-Ford and even Madonna.

Becks, the leader of the sinister celebrity army, will blast everything in his path with a ray gun hidden in his left wrist.

The waxworks, who appear in an episode called Aliens of London, are under the control of a deadly extra-terrestrial race known as the Autons.

They have no physical form but attack humans by manipulating anything made of wax or plastic.

A BBC insider revealed: "They plan to replace leaders like Tony Blair and George Bush with lookalikes from Tussauds but it fails so they bring a host of celebrities alive to attack Parliament."

The Autons were twice thwarted in the early 70s.

This time ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston will tackle Beckham's replica in one of the first episodes of next year's 13-part series. He will also face updated Daleks.

DR WHO 2

FORMER singer Billie Piper is to play Dr Who's psychic sidekick Rose Tyler in the £3million revival of the BBC series.

The 22-year-old, who is married to TV millionaire Chris Evans, will be boarding the Tardis with ninth doctor Christopher Eccleston for filming in July.

Billie, who has quit her singing career to concentrate on acting, said: -I'm absolutely thrilled because Dr Who is such an iconic show."
