'Supernatural' star joins 'Doctor Who'

By
Bionic Woman - Mark Sheppard
Mark Sheppard is to make a guest appearance in the next series of Doctor Who.

A press release from science-fiction convention ValleyCon 36 has announced that the actor was forced to pull out of the event due to work commitments on the show.

The statement claimed: "We had just booked Mark's airline tickets a week ago when less than 12 hours later he got the dream job of any kid who grew up in England. He [has] landed a huge role in the new Doctor Who."

Sheppard is believed to be starring in the new run's opening two-part story, which began shooting last week.

The star is known for his role as the demon Crowley on Supernatural and has also featured in episodes of 24 and Battlestar Galactica.

The sixth series of Doctor Who will air on BBC One in 2011, following a one-off special this Christmas.
