Doctor Who Christmas Special casting news
For those suffering from post-anniversary blues, here's a little something about Doctor Who's 2013 Christmas Special...
For many of us, the weekend's magnificent festivities have coloured this morning with a distinct sense of mail-anniversary blues. Never fear, because we're only weeks away from another brand new Who episode, and a brand new Doctor to trunk.
We're expecting a few more details on the Christmas Special to follow shortly (a title and synopsis will give us something to chew over happily for a while), but first up is the news of one of the episode's key guest stars: Orla Brady.
You may know her as the alternate Elizabeth Bishop in Fringe, or as Taryn in Sky One's Sinbad, but she's made countless other screen appearances from Mistresses to The Deep, Wallander and Poirot.
Brady is playing "someone from the Doctor's past, with the plot of the episode revolving around her". If your speculation glands haven't run dry thanks to the weekend, does anyone fancy taking a punt at who that might be?
