Call the Midwife actress Jessica Raine has apparently won a role in Doctor Who.

Raine will play a character named Emma Grayling on the sci-fi drama, according to her CV at acting agency Gordon & French.

Her episode is seemingly titled 'Phantoms of the Hex' and will be helmed by Primeval director Jamie Payne, who also worked with Raine on Call the Midwife.

In addition to her role as nurse Jenny Lee on the BBC's hit period drama, Raine has appeared in 2012 Daniel Radcliffe film horror The Woman in Black, as well as episodes of Robin Hood and Garrow's Law.

It was recently confirmed that the first episode of Doctor Who's seventh series - to be screened on August 14 at the BFI Southbank in London - will be titled 'Asylum of the Daleks'.

Other guest stars confirmed for the new episodes include Dougray Scott (My Week with Marilyn), Ben Browder (Farscape), Rupert Graves (Sherlock), David Bradley (Harry Potter) and Mark Williams (Being Human).


Ooooh. Ben Browder! :oops:

It's pretty pathetic how they're only doing five episodes this year, plus a Christmas special. :(

Yes. Five this year, six if you count a Christmas special, and a further eight, nine if you count a Christmas special, next year.

The fifth episode, while not named yet, will involve Amy and Rory leaving. Oh, and Weeping Angels in New York. :o

David Bradley has revealed new details about his role on Doctor Who.

The Harry Potter actor will appear in the sci-fi drama's seventh series, as first announced in February.

"He is a space pirate," Bradley told the Warwick University podcast of his character Solomon.

"We've modelled [him] on a well-known nightclub owner with long hair. He has lots of scars [and] he wears black leather."

Bradley - who has also appeared on Game of Thrones and Our Friends in the North - went on to describe Solomon as "like an old rocker".

"He... runs a ship the size of Canada," said the 70-year-old. "He has two giant robots who are a bit rusty."

Other guest stars confirmed for the next series of Doctor Who include Dame Diana Rigg (The Avengers), her daughter Rachael Stirling (Snow White and the Huntsman), Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones), David Warner (The Omen), Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife) and Ben Browder (Farscape).

Doctor Who will return to BBC One in August.

I was just musing what an episode written by Sir Terry would be like. I reckon he could do dark, scary, and 'humanity' pretty well. :D

Regarding the new series, it will be shown while many of us are at the Con in Birmingham. Should we all pile into someone's room to watch it or does the hotel have a communal tv lounge we could hijack? :think:
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Terry Pratchett has issues with Doctor Who. I doubt he would ever write for it.
