Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Casting Begins!

It’s here! We have our first piece of 50th anniversary casting news! So, is it Paul McGann? David Tennant? Tom Baker? Oh tell us! Tell us now!

Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

Well it’s no, no and no – but we admire your enthusiasm. Instead, according to their respective CV’s the improbably named pair of actors Ken Bones and newcomer Orlando James will join the celebrations as The General and Lord Bentham respectively (“two very Time Lord sounding names… or perhaps even old school UNIT members?” he says, stroking his chin in a contemplative manner).

According to DoctorWhoTV Ken Bones has recently been seen in the BBC’s revival of Upstairs, Downstairs and will later this year be seen in Da Vinci’s Demons and the new BBC fantasy show Atlantis.

Also, according to his agents, the more probably named Marshall Griffin, who has appeared in Being Human and World of the Dead: The Zombie Diaries II, has also been cast, although his character is not named at the present time (“A man without a name? Could this be a Western? I wonder…”).

So, this is it, the metaphorical wheels are in motion! Exciting times ahead!


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.
