THE face of the alien facing Kylie Minogue in the next episode of Doctor Who was revealed yesterday.
The spiky red-faced monster will do battle with Kylie and Doctor Who star David Tennant in this year’s Christmas special.
The alien – nicknamed Porg on set – was captured yesterday during a break in filming the latest Timelord special.
And the red-faced alien enhanced his anti-social credentials by lighting up a quick cigarette during filming.
The alien menace dressed in a dinner jacket invades the Titanic’s 1912 launch party in the show.
Kylie, 39, plays a waitress called Astrid on the doomed ship alongside Tennant in the one-hour special called Voyage Of The Damned.
The team were filming a ballroom scene at a secret location in Wales yesterday.
Tennant donned a tuxedo and bow tie for the scene but kept his trademark trainers on as well.
A crew member said, “Kylie is a pleasure to work with.
“She’s incredibly lovely in the flesh and the production has been going really well so far.
“The actor playing the alien spends hours in make-up to get that look.”
When the series returns next spring comedienne Catherine Tate will play the Doctor’s new companion Donna.
Freema Agyeman, whose character Martha left at the end of the last series, is scheduled to return to the Doctor’s side halfway through the new series.
