Doctor Who - Series 10: Guest Stars Confirmed

It's been a bit of a while since I've posted anything in relation to Doctor Who but here's a blog with some of the more up to date information I can find.

David Suchet best know for his role as Poirot has been cast as the Landlord. Appearing in the fourth episode, written by Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster), Suchet will make his debut in the series and going by the recent filming pictures, it seems like he will be Bill's (Pearl Mackie) landlord as it appears she lives in a house with a few other students. Not much is known about the fourth episode other than it's writer and director, Bill Anderson (who also directed episode 3 by Sarah Dollard), other than it's contemporary and we're meeting people from Bill's normal life. There's also the fact that the house from Blink reappears but nothing that suggests that this will be a story featuring the Weeping Angels though. It does seem like the BBC are keeping very tight lipped about most of the filming this series.

Meanwhile filming has also completed on Sarah Dollard's episode and it's another one where very little seems to have been disclosed of. However given the costuming that both the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Bill have sported, it's certainly a historical episode though, possibly a Regency episode. Other bits of information that has been revealed is that Royale Family actor Ralf Little will be Frank Cottrell Boyce's second episode (which included filming in Spain) along with Mina Amwar while rumours have also surfaced that filming for the series will see the gang heading to Vancouver in October, though that's something yet to be confirmed. There's also the fact that the show has yet to film this year's Christmas special as well and I'm intrigued to see what they'll do with that one this year.

Press Release:

Series 10 of Doctor Who is currently filming and will air in Spring 2017 on BBC1 and BBCAmerica. The Christmas special will be filmed soon.
