Doctor Who


Filming Begins on Doctor Who, Series 9

BBC - Doctor Who - Wed, 01/14/2015 - 6:41am

Filming has begun in Cardiff for series 9 of Doctor Who and includes a star-studded guest cast. The new series will be back on BBC One in Autumn 2015.

The episodes currently being filmed are written by Toby Whithouse (The Game, Being Human), produced by Derek Ritchie and directed by Daniel O’Hara (Silent Witness 2015, The Game, Being Human).

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, said, “An amazing guest cast for a brilliantly creepy two-parter by Toby Whithouse. Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are back in Cardiff, back in the box, and back in action - for one of our scariest adventures yet!”

On set filming for the new series, Peter Capaldi added, “The adventures begin again for myself and Jenna and I’m delighted to be back filming my second series of Doctor Who.”

Paul Kaye who played Thoros of Myr in the third series of Game of Thrones joins the Doctor Who cast for the two-part episode. A comedian and actor, Paul is also well-known for being the voice of Vincent the fox on the puppet-based BBC comedy Mongrels.

Commenting on his role, Paul Kaye, said, “As a kid of the 1970s, the two shows you always watched were Top of the Pops and Doctor Who, they were unmissable. I actually wrote a song called ‘Looking for Davros’ in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek. I got to present TOTP back in the mid ‘90’s and landing this role in Doctor Who completes the dream double.

“Peter is a perfect Doctor and I’m loving every minute of the experience, even the five hours in make-up. What a treat, best 50th birthday present ever!”

Also starring in the episodes will be Morven Christie who recently played the role of Amanda in the crime drama Grantchester and featured in Death in Paradise (2014) and Twenty Twelve.

Arsher Ali who played the part of Malik Suri in the critically acclaimed The Missing (BBC One) takes up a role in the guest cast alongside Colin McFarlane who appeared in EastEnders as part of the Who Killed Lucy Beale? storyline.

Recognised for her theatre and TV performances, actress Sophie Stone appears in the show for the first time. Sophie was the lead actress in the play Woman of Flowers and has appeared in Midsummer Murders and Casualty.

Also joining Peter Capaldi (the Doctor) and Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) and confirmed for roles in the double episode are Zaqi Ismail, Steven Robertson and Neil Fingleton.

Further guest cast for series 9 will be released over the coming months. Doctor Who is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One.

Remembering Bernard Kay

BBC - Doctor Who - Mon, 01/05/2015 - 12:17pm

Bernard Kay, the actor who played four roles in Doctor Who during a career spanning over 50 years, died December, 2014. He was known for his versatility and ability to bring both gravitas and vulnerability to an enormously wide range of characters.

After a couple of minor TV roles his big screen debut came in the first of the Carry On movies, Carry on Sergeant (1958), starring William Hartnell. His later films included David Lean’s Dr Zhivago (1965), Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977) and Steal this Movie (2000) but he’s principally remembered for his extensive television work. From the mid-50s he became a familiar face in British drama, appearing in countless hits ranging from Z Cars and Colditz to Jonathan Creek and Foyle’s War. He guested in cult classics such as The Avengers, Space: 1999, The Champions and the original version of Terry Nation’s Survivors and he played Richard Naismith in Russell T Davies’ Century Falls. But many Doctor Who fans remember Bernard Kay fondly for his roles in adventures involving the First, Second and Third Doctors.

In 1964 he found himself acting alongside William Hartnell (the First Doctor) once again in The Dalek Invasion of Earth, playing the hard-bitten but heroic Tyler in his Doctor Who debut. He returned to the show the following year, delivering a nuanced performance as Saladin, the Twelfth Century military leader in The Crusade. He played Detective Inspector Crossland in the Second Doctor adventure The Faceless Ones and finally appeared in one story shot in colour, the 1971 six-parter, Colony in Space. The photo above is taken from this adventure and shows him as Caldwell (left) with Jon Pertwee as the Doctor.

Bernard Kay had been a reporter in his youth and during his later years he returned to writing. The opening chapter of his autobiography came first in the New Writing Ventures awards in 2006 but he didn’t abandon acting, appearing in BBC series including Casualty: 1909 and Doctors.

You can watch him in action in a tense scene from The Faceless Ones.

Bernard Frederic Bemrose Kay, born February, 1928; died December, 2014.
