Best known as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully on The X-Files, Gillian Anderson now resides in London, England and is jumping feet first into Doctor Who. Not content with playing opposite former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston onstage in London's West End, Ms. Anderson will be playing opposite Matt Smith, the next incarnation of the Doctor. Apparently she will be a glamorous evil scientific genius who happens to be a regenerated Time Lady called the Rani, last played in the 80s by actress Kate O'Mara.

She always knew the truth was out there - now Gillian Anderson is set to prove it as she appears in the next series of Doctor Who.

Sci-fi fans will remember Anderson as the X Files detective Dana Scully who was always searching for signs of extra terrestrial life.

And now she is set to prove aliens really do exist - by appearing alongside one in the hit BBC show.

The 40-year-old is expected to play a Time Lady, the Rani, a glamorous but evil scientific genius, reprising a role played by actress Kate O'Mara in the 80s.

A source told the Express: 'Gillian obviously has a massive sci-fi following and it's felt it would be a major coup to have her appear in Doctor Who.

"The team behind the show are keen for the next Doctor to have lots of new enemies and Gillian would be a glamorous and impressive addition to the list."

Matt Smith takes over as the Doctor next year following David Tennant's resignation.

Anderson is currently preparing to star alongside former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston in a production of A Doll's House at the Donmar Warehouse in London's West End.

She lives in London with her three children and partner, Mark Griffiths.
