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.
Both BBC and BBC America have made the new promo trailer for the upcoming Doctor Who series available (2012). On the BBC website, it is not restricted to the UK only either. Enjoy!
As promised here is the actual Doctor Who 2012 series (AKA "series 7") promo trailer direct from BBC America starring Matt Smith as the (11th) Doctor.
Here is the new trailer for the upcoming new series of Doctor Who. It is obviously hand held and shot at the 'official Doctor Who Convention' in the UK going on this weekend. A full HD version is coming on Monday.
