John Barrowman is offering contestants on his new show Tonight’s The Night a part in a Doctor Who scene.

John, who starred in BBC2’s Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood is fronting his own BBC show which, in his words ‘makes people’s dreams come true’.

The winner will play an alien in the scene, made by the Doctor Who production team and filmed in the Tardis, which will be shown on the final edition of Tonight’s The Night.

John said: “This is a fantastic opportunity and I can’t wait to see the winner experience performing on the set of Doctor Who.”

Viewers over 18 are invited to submit an application featuring a photograph of them in their home-made alien costume, along with information about their alien, such as where it’s from and its characteristics.

A group of 50 applicants will be selected to meet a panel including John and Doctor Who casting director, Andy Pryor. From these 50, 10 will be carried through to a final elimination.
