Rumours in tomorrows fish and chip paper the Daily Star (printed, confusingly, yesterday) seem to suggest that Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page is being cast for a major role in next year’s Doctor Who.
There is no clear identification of the role, but it is thought to be a recurring one – we’ll wrap the next bit up as a spoiler…
The Daily Star claims that Page is to play another Time Lord. The identity of this Time Lord, as well as the veracity of the rumour, is unknown.
According to one of those BBC sources:
â€œJoanna could be massive for the show. Sheâ€™s been offered two episodes and if that goes well the skyâ€™s the limit.â€
â€œObviously we would love her to have a long-term future in Doctor Who.â€
As you may know already, Page’s Gavin & Stacey co-star, James Corden, appears in The Lodger later this series.
