EastEnders Nina to play Doctor Who villain

EastEnders star Nina Wadia has been given time off from the soap to appear as a baddie in the new series of Doctor Who.

The 41-year-old - aka Zainab Masood in the soap - will be seen as an evil psychiatric episode alongside new Doctor Matt Smith when the show returns in the spring.

Wadia told The Sun: "It was brilliant to be let out for a couple of days to do something else and it was great working with Matt Smith.

"I play a bit of a baddie. And yes, like my EastEnders character Zainab, she's not a very pleasant woman - but at least I'm human and not some kind of strange alien life-form."

The actress also revealed that she did not have a speaking part in Friday's forthcoming live episode to mark the show's 25th anniversary.

"I'm disappointed yet relieved," Wadia admitted. "You want to be in it, but not to mess it up!"
