Doctor Who: series 7 casting news

British actress Celia Imrie has been confirmed as appearing in the second half of the current series of Doctor Who...

The first post-Christmas Special episode of Doctor Who's current series is to feature a familiar face in the form of UK telly, stage and film stalwart Celia Imrie.

Episode 7.7, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Colm McCarthy, is said to be a modern-day Earth story featuring Imrie amongst the guest cast in an unspecified role. Due to air in the spring of 2013, it's to be the first of the eight new episodes that will complete the show's current interrupted run.

Incidentally, the episode won't be Imrie's first on-screen appearance with new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman, as the pair worked together on Julian Fellowes' not-so-affectionately dubbed 'Drownton Abbey' drama, Titanic, last April. We'll keep you posted as soon as more news arrives...
