Earlier this week it was revealed that renowned film, stage and television actor David Warner will guest-star in Doctor Who in its seventh season. As yet details about his part have not been revealed though he will appear in an episode which will air next year therefore featuring Jenna-Louise Coleman in her role of the Doctor’s (Matt Smith) new companion.
Several more guest stars for the next series of Doctor Who have been revealed. Appearing in the same episode as Warner will be Liam Cunningham. The actor plays Ser Davos Seaworth on HBO‘s epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones and last year he was part of the cast of BBC One’s ill-fated sci-fi Outcasts. Cunningham played President Richard Tate in the drama about the last survivors of humanity who have colonised a distant world. The drama bombed in the ratings despite having a cast which included Jamie Bamber, Eric Mabius and Hermione Norris.
Meanwhile Jessica Raine and Dougray Scott will appear in the episode penned by Neil Cross. Dougray Scott has a wide variety of roles behind him such as appearances in Desperate Housewives, Day of the Triffids, Deep Impact, Mission Impossible 2 and Solider Solider. Jessica Raine will be best known for her role of nurse Jenny Lee in BBC One’s smash hit Call the Midwife which broke all ratings records when it aired on the broadcaster earlier this year. The 1950s drama, which also stars Miranda Hart, Pam Ferris and Jenny Agutter, was recently repeated on BBC One.
The three join other stars confirmed for the seventh season of Doctor Who such as Adrian Scarborough, Mark Williams, Rupert Graves, Steven Berkoff and Ben Browder.
