Joanna Page Confirms Queen Elizabeth Casting

It looks like the Doctor’s love affair with (and marriage to) Queen Elizabeth I might finally be afforded some screen-time in the 50th Anniversary special The Day of the Doctor

In an interview with the Radio Times (since corroborated in the new SciFiNow and the recent synopsis of the 50th anniversary episode), future Miss Marple actress (?) Joanna Page has officially confirmed her involvement in the upcoming special.

Perhaps best known for her role in Gavin and Stacey, Page had this to say about her casting as The Virgin Queen:

I’ve always wanted to be in [Doctor Who] so I was so excited. You don’t expect when you’ve just had a baby for someone to phone and go: “Do you fancy playing Elizabeth I?” I was recovering from a caesarean but I still got on the back of a horse with David Tennant. Just as we were about to ride off my husband drove up because Eva needed feeding: I had to jump off the horse and rip open my bodice. Fortunately, David’s a dad so he’s used to it!

Good Queen Bess. And let me tell you, her nickname is no longer… mmm.
