Doctor Who Magazine reports that the Jonathan Creek star will feature in the US-based opening two-parter.

Milligan previously voiced the character of General Stark in Doctor Who animation Dreamland and also starred in the 2003 revamp of Crossroads.

He will join Supernatural star Mark Sheppard, who will play Canton. Other cast members confirmed for the two episodes include The Damned United actress Sydney Wade, Highlander star Peter Banks and Ricky Fearon, who previously appeared in Torchwood episode, 'To the Last Man'.

It has also been confirmed that Life On Mars co-creator Matthew Graham will script episodes five and six of the new series. Graham previously wrote the episode 'Fear Her' for the show's second series in 2006.

Doctor Who will return to BBC One this Christmas for one-off special, 'A Christmas Carol'. The sixth series will follow in early 2011.
