Richard E. Grant
Richard E. Grant has been cast in the upcoming 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special. The news came from a tweet from Doctor Who Magazine today. It's interesting to see an official-unofficial past Doctor actor return to the series. You may recall that Richard E. Grant was the original 9th Doctor in the Scream of the Shalka, a story written by Paul Cornell. This animated adventure was produced prior to the television series being relaunched in 2005. We reviewed Scream of the Shalka not too long ago in Doctor Who: Podshock 267. In it, we discussed Richard E. Grant's portrayal of the Doctor and how Scream was the forerunner of Rose.
Wow - what a cool series of portraits, and they can be yours! An amazing group including Paul McGann, Sheridan Smith, John Simm, Catherine Tate, Richard E. Grant, Mark Gatiss, Noel Clark, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tim Pigott-Smith, Sylvester McCoy, Michelle Ryan and David Morrissey:
This is all for charity too. Win-win (see below:).
Oh. Yes. Tweet me if you're going to be there at the Silent Movie on Fairfax on Tuesday. Bruce Robinson? A 35mm print? Heaven!!!
We like Johnny Depp 'cause Johnny Depp likes Withnail!
We love Gugu M'Batha-Raw (Martha's sister) too - she played Ophelia in this Donmar production of "Hamlet." I hope they let her appear in the Broadway transfer. It will never come to LA, though. Which sucks:
That's the big news of the day from me!
