Thanks for the Planks!

Avast me Hearties! That scurvy naive Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Bonekickers) has gone and poured his gizzards out on twitter- doffing his triangular hat in the direction of Steven Moffat and the Doctor Who crew of the damned.

Twittering the now de-pirated Bonneville wrote a lovely message saying:

“Thanks to @steven_moffat & the brilliant #DrWho crew for a fantastic fortnight on the high seas  #BeardGone #ColdFace

News of Bonneville’s adventure on the high seas was first announced in flip flopping, political bandwagon jumper The Sun (which we never link to) – along with his confession of his life long love of the show:

“When I was a boy, the music and Jon Pertwee’s Doctor had me peeking out from behind the sofa every Saturday. I am thrilled to be appearing in the new series.”

Aw, bless his little Dalek socks. Bonneville will be appearing along side  former ‘strawberry blond’ haired supermodel turned actress Lily Cole (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) as a “mysterious creature that haunts a pirate ship” and Former Eastender Lee Ross (Ashes to Ashes) as a character called Boatsswain.

Footage has been posted on YouTube of Karen Gillan getting into the swing of things on board a ship anchored at Charlestown, Cornwall

The episode, written by Steve Thompson (Sherlock), will be the third to air when the show makes its expected return this coming spring.


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
