David Tennant voices an ancient droid in this weekend's episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

Here's a geek telly Venn diagram overlap for you: Doctor Who and the Star Wars franchise, together in one neat little clip. The Tenth Doctor has followed in the footsteps of Simon Pegg and voiced a cameo role in animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Find a way he did, and here's the clip from this weekend's episode to prove it...
