A competition will be run for one viewer to take part in a specially-written scene which is to be shot on the set of the Tardis.
Speaking about the competition, Tonight's The Night star John Barrowman said: "This is a fantastic opportunity and I can't wait to see the winner experience performing on the set of Doctor Who."
