Dreamland Star in Series 6

The latest Doctor Who Magazine reveals that actor Stuart Milligan has been cast in Series 6 and will feature in the US-based two part opening episodes.

US-born Milligan is more familiar to TV audiences as Adam Klaus in the oddball detective drama Jonathan Creek, although he also appeared in the short-lived rebirth of Crossroads. You might also have seen him on stage as part of the cast of the hit West End show Jersey Boys.

Already cast in these episodes are US genre TV star Mark Sheppard (who appeared in an episode of CSI on the Five US channel last week) as Canton, The Damned United actress Sydney Wade, former Highlander star Peter Banks and Ricky Fearon, whose credits include the Torchwood episode, To the Last Man. Some great names here, and with the first two-part opening story for Doctor Who since its return, it looks like we’re in for a great time!

2009’s animated Doctor Who adventure Dreamland was Milligan’s first taste of the Whoniverse, where he played US military commander Colonel Stark, so it only makes sense that he should be returning for the series’ first proper shooting in the States in Utah.

Although on that logic, we should be seeing Henry van Statten actor Corey Johnson (Dalek) cast at any time…
