Michael Sheen Has A Role In Neil Gaiman's Doctor Who Episode

Neil Gaiman has confirmed that Michael Sheen has a role in his upcoming episode of Doctor Who. It's going to be the fourth episode in the new series, so that means an airdate of May 14th, I believe, both at home and in the US.

We don't know a huge amount about the episode, but there's a few previous stories on the site if you want to trawl through them all. We know less about Sheen's role, though there's one key piece of info: he won't be appearing on screen, but providing a voice over.

Computer? Robot? Robot dog? Cartoon rabbit?*

We don't know. Either way, it's great to see Sheen involved because he is, quite simply, fantastic.

*Robot dog? What an awful idea. Forget I even mentioned it.
