John Barrowman – West End sensation – has arrived for filming on Episodes 9 and 10. His early casting was due to his heavy workload.
More casting has been confirmed, with Episode 7 – The Long Game – enjoying the talents of Colin Prockter (“Coronation Street”, “Trial and Retribution”) as the “Head Chef” and Judy Holt (“Queer as Folk”, “Springhill”) as “Sandra”.
Meanwhile, each episode will have on-screen titles – and the two-parters will have different titles! According to Phil Collinson: “Each episode of the two-part stories will have a different title.

Finally, information about Doctor Who Confidential, the 13-part BBC Three documentary has also been released in DWM. The show will broadcast behind-the-scenes footage, contain old footage as well as new, and will be narrated by Simon Pegg. Each of the thirteen parts will look at a particular theme in that evening’s Doctor Who.
