10 APRIL 2009

Between fighting a half-fly/half-human race and battling deadly stingrays Dr Who star David Tennant has found time for a lingering kiss with co-star Michelle Ryan.

The romantic clinch came as he teamed up in an Easter special with the former EastEnder, who recently returned to the UK after appearing in American TV show Bionic Woman.

In the past his character has smooched Kylie Minogue, Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman and Jessica Hynes – each time guaranteeing a ratings hit for the BBC.

Indeed one insider joked, "Since David took over he's more Doctor Woo than Doctor Who."

In the Easter episode, entitled Planet Of The Dead, Michelle's catsuit-wearing character Lady Christina De Souza steals something important before trying to escape on a bus.

"London transport being what it is, it slips through a wormhole in time and space and ends up on a planet on the other side of the universe," explains David of the show, which can be seen on April 11.
