Series 3 Late Casting News

Issue 380 of Doctor Who Magazine (which features the smashing conclusion to the Tenth Doctor’s adventure with a certain Brigadier) contains news of some interesting casting for Series 3.

The final two episodes will feature characters played by Nichola McAuliffe and Ellie Haddington. McAuliffe is best known from the ITV hospital comedy Surgical Spirit, and also appeared in one of the better episodes of the BBC’s reworking of Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) in 2001. Ellie Haddington meanwhile is known for her regular role in ITV’s long-running women’s prison drama Bad Girls.

Elize du ToitOther names cast include Alexandra Moen (Tripping Over, Foyle’s War, Midsommer Murders), Elize du Toit (formerly hot posh bird in Hollyoaks – pictured left), Nicholas Gecks (Sea of Souls), Colin Stinton (a Canadian actor, often plays Americans: The Trial of Tony Blair, A for Andromeda (2006) version), Natasha Alexander (Robin Hood), Tom Golding , Olivia Hill (The Sarah Jane Adventures Invasion of the Bane) and Daniel Ming.

ContactMusic.com reports that a scene featuring companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) in a bikini was cut from Series 3. I can’t help feeling a sense of deja vu about this next quote, but here it is anyway:

Star DAVID TENNANT has revealed the steamy footage was cut by anxious BBC television chiefs. He says, “There was an underwater scene in a draft of the new series but we nixed it out. It was bordering on inappropriate. “You can’t have shagging in the Tardis.”

Speaking of Freema, her smashing website report that the actress appears in the April edition of GQ magazine alongside David Tennant as well as in the 16 part section of the Radio Times that accompanies the broadcast of Series 3 Episode 1 – Smith & Jones.
