Joining the cast of Doctor Who on their latest adventure is Andrew Brookes, one of the stars of Channel 4’s ‘comedy’ Phoneshop.
While the Daily Mail reported that love was in the air on the set, with Karen Gillan and Brookes locking lips, our focus is in a somewhat different area than that of a gossip rag.
He’s joined them in the city of Almeria in Spain to film scenes for what will presumably be their Western episode, playing the part of somebody called The Reckoner. So who do we ‘reckon’ he is? Time Lord? Pistols at dawn referee? Wrestler? We just don’t know (and indeed cannot know until the inevitable plot leaks later in the year), but my personal guess is some sort of Justice of the Peace.
I’ve not actually seen Phoneshop, hence my labelling it as a ‘comedy’ earlier in the article (and from the word of mouth I’m getting, I don’t want to) but one thing’s for sure: since getting bit parts in The IT Crowd, Sherlock Holmes and The Inbetweeners, Mr Brooke is going from strength to strength and working his way up the career ladder. Best of luck to him.
