Planet Of the Dead update

The BBC have confirmed the casting of Michelle Ryan in the Planet of the Dead, the first of four Doctor Who Specials which will air in 2009.

Ryan, who is best known for her roles as Zoe Slater in EastEnders, and Jaime Sommers in the recent remake of Bionic Woman, will play the mysterious Lady Christina de Souza who joins David Tennant, as the Doctor, on a bus trip which takes a very unexpected detour into danger. She said "I'm a huge fan of Doctor Who and very excited to be joining David Tennant and the Doctor Who team. It is such a fantastic show and I can’t wait to get started!"

One of Britain's best loved comedy stars, Lee Evans, will also be joining the cast playing a character called Malcolm, whose life becomes connected to the Doctor's under extraordinary circumstances.

Noma Dumezweni returns as Captain Erisa Magambo, last seen helping Rose and Donna save the world in Turn Left.

Executive Producer and writer Russell T Davies said "Michelle is one of the most sought after young actors in the country and we are delighted to announce that she will be joining the team. As always the script is being kept strictly under wraps however we can reveal that Lady Christina is a woman with a mysterious past who's going to have a huge impact on the Doctor! "

The episode will be screened at Easter.

"I would like to point out that it is still not known for certain whether Xabier has, for lack of a better word, scammed," said Manalapan.

"What we DO know is that he has missed a dividend payment on a personal bond. And his bio now states, 'Thanks for all the fish.'"

Another one joins the flock....

And a big hearty welcome to LJ to the wonderful moragmacpherson, author of some marvelous Buffyverse/Doctor Who crossovers. Make her feel welcome around the place folks, and try not to embarass us too much until it's too late for her to get out. *grin*

I particularly recommend her Another Side of the Sky fic (currently nominated at the Crossing Over Awards) which is still one of my all time favourites. Go! Read! Enjoy!
