Doctor Who

A brand new series of ‘Doctor Who’ is upon us, and it looks to be every bit as star-studded as Whovians have come to expect over the years.

Among the stars viewers can look forward to cropping up in the new series include ‘Game Of Thrones’ actress Maisie Williams, comedian Rufus Hound and Peter Capaldi’s ‘The Thick Of It’ co-star Rebecca Front, while it was recently announced that Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has also recorded a brief part.


Meanwhile, Michelle Gomez will be reprising her roles as Missy, having impressed viewers with their villainous portrayals in the last series.

Former ‘Coronation Street’ actress Michelle Keegan was recently named the bookies’ favourite to take over as the Time Lord’s companion in the next series of ‘Doctor Who’, a position Catherine Tate, Billie Piper and Karen Gillan have all held in the past.
