'What is Sigourney Weaver doing on Doc Martin?' Twitter loses it over Alien star's unexpected appearance

'What is Sigourney Weaver doing on Doc Martin?' Twitter loses it over Alien star's unexpected appearance
'What is Sigourney Weaver doing on Doc Martin?' It's a good question, and one Twitter didn't seem to be able to answer last night as the Alien star appeared in the Cornwall-set comedy drama.

The man to thank for the almost unbelievable cameo is - wait for it - Jonathan Ross. No, really. Here's star Martin Clunes himself explaining all in a recent appearance on Wossy's chat show:

"I came on here to plug [ITV drama mini-series] Arthur and George and Sigourney Weaver was here, who I'd never met.

"She said, 'Oh I've watched every episode of Doc Martin...'

"It turns out, she is best friends with [Clunes' Doc Martin co-star] Selina Cadell - they were students together - who plays Mrs Tishell, our chemist and so that's why she'd been watching."

Playing an American tourist visiting Martin's Cornish town, Weaver jumped at the chance of a small role.

Twitter users, however, just jumped of their skins.
