Doctor Who: An Adventure In Space And Time casting complete
All the big names for Mark Gatiss' birth-of-Who docudrama have now been announced...
We brought you news last week that newcomer Claudia Grant was the official choice to play Carole Ann Ford in the BBC's forthcoming Doctor Who docudrama, An Adventure in Space and Time, and now the remaining roles have been filled.
First up is Jamie Glover (Waterloo Road, Holby City), the man brought in to fill William Russell's shoes, the actor who played Who companion and science teacher Ian Chesterton. Mr Glover, it's been announced, will have added pressure to pull off the part in style as William Russell himself will also be appearing in the docudrama.
Russell's character, about which nothing is known, goes by the name of Harry.
Ian Chesterton's colleague from the history department and fellow TARDIS companion, Barbara Wright, aka actress Jacqueline Hill is to be played by Jemma Powell, recently seen in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and UK horror The Seasoning House.
And finally, trailblazing composer Deliba Derbyshire, renowned for her arrangement of the Doctor Who theme music, is to be played by relative newcomer Sarah Winter.
That should conclude the An Adventure in Space and Time casting announcements for now. The one-off period drama is currently in production, and due to air as part of the BBC's celebrations for Doctor Who's fiftieth anniversary in November.
