Catherine Zeta Jones wanted to join Doctor Who in the Tardis
THE Doctor could have a new big screen side-kick - Catherine Zeta Jones.
At least that is the wish of Doctor Who creator Russell T Davies.

The 45-year-old Swansea writer said he would love to see Catherine in the Tardis, if the BBC Wales show hit cinemas.
"Being from Wales myself, I'd love to have Catherine Zeta Jones as a companion for the Doctor," he said.
But he insisted no one could replace David Tennant, aged 37, as the Time Lord.
"To have anyone else would be inconceivable."
New Doctor Who boss Steven Moffat hinted last month that the sci-fi hit could become a movie.
Russell said: "I haven't had time to spit, let alone make a film. It would be hard but it's a lovely idea."
Swansea-born Catherine, who is married to fellow actor Michael Douglas and has two children, recently starred in a movie about escapologist Houdini - Death Defying Acts.
