So, you know, spoilers and all that.
And here is the first proper cast picture of Scott Haran as boy wizard, Tom Clarke and Percelle Ascott as best mate, Benny Sherwood in the upcoming series, Wizards Vs. Aliens by Russell T. Davies. I have to admit, I am rather intrigued by the series. The casting so far has included the likes of Annette Badland, Gwendoline Christie, Nina Sossanya and Don Gilet and now an even more interesting cast member has been announced ...
It seems that King Yrcanos himself, Brian Blessed will be playing the role of the Nekross King in the series, the main antagonists for Tom and Benny who feed on magic. Russell T. Davies has also been on pointing out that the scenes on Earth and the ones with Nekross will contrast with each other as wizards were previously unaware of alien existence. It looks like it's going to be some battle. As a replacement for The Sarah Jane Adventures, this is starting to shape up rather nicely.
