Specials Casting SPOILER

We should christen it Spoiler Sunday – there’s some very interesting postings on the (ex-Outpost Gallifrey) Doctor Who Forum which includes snaps of one very remarkable guest star.

Rather than give it all away now – as the casting is likely going to hit the tabloids in the next few days, we’ll give you some clues first of all…

  • This actress has appeared in Doctor Who previously
  • Her character was in love with a man with a journal
  • This time she’s (presumably) playing a different character with evident links to the first.

Her name: Jessica Hynes!

That’s right, the excellent Jessica Hynes (whose most well-known work is alongside Simon Pegg in Spaced despite all of the winderful stuff she’s done since) is returning to Doctor Who, having first appeared as Joan Redfern in 2007’s Human Nature/The Family of Blood.

Remarkable as it may seem, Ms Hynes has been recording scenes with David Tennant in the last few days under thew watchful eye of Euros Lyn, placing this footage firmly into the final two episodes of David Tennant’s time as the Doctor.

Shooting has been taking place in Blackwell’s Bookshop in Cardiff, where Hynes’ character Verity Newman (stick with it) is engaged in a booksigning.

Pretty humdrum really.

The book?
