Yet More New Series Casting
News is starting to seep through of acting talent that is to be involved on the newest series of Doctor Who for this year but so far it seems to be a few more minor roles that are being announced as opposed to the major ones!
First up is stand up comedian Charlie Baker whoâ€™s appeared on the BBC pop quiz show Never Mind the Buzzcocks and also in an episode of Channel 4â€™s The IT Crowd. He has been cast in the part of rather vaguely titled â€œfat manâ€. Appearing alongside him (one presumes) is Dan Johnston as â€œthin manâ€.Â Johnstonâ€™s TV credits include Sold, The Bill and sitcom After Youâ€™ve Gone.
Two child actors have also apparently made contributions to the new series but only by lending their vocal talents to some voice work (surely not the Toclafane again?!).Fern Duncan has recently appeared in Poirot and the new Jack Black film Gulliverâ€™s Travels whilst Frances Encell has had parts in ITV soap Emmerdale and The Royal.
Finally, another new director has been announced for the 2011 series in the form of Peter Hoar who has directed episodes of Mistresses and Spooks, so he should hopefully bring an exciting and well paced episode into the 2011 run!
So there you have it, weâ€™re nothing if not meticulous here at Kasterborous when it comes to the details of the newest series of our favourite show!
The new series of Doctor Who is due to air sometime in spring 2011.
