Another familiar face has been added to Doctor Who's 50th anniversary episode. See read-through pictures and more here...

This story contains casting news for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode.

The news that Tenth Doctor David Tennant, companion Billie Piper, and guest star John Hurt were confirmed for the Doctor Who anniversary special made Easter weekend spicier than one of those alarming chilli pepper and raisin hot cross buns they brought out this year. Now, to add to the excitement comes ocular proof in the form of a photo taken at the official script read-through. 

After performing a Blade Runner-style "Enhance, stop. Move in, stop. Pull out, track right, stop. Centre in, pull back. Stop" exercise on the picture (or more honestly, pressing Ctrl+ repeatedly), you can clearly read a no-doubt dummy title on the front of those scripts: Blue Amends, two words which almost certainly won't be in the name of the episode, unless they're a Who-style anagram for Dul Sunbeam, or Mendable US, or Amused Ndbl, or... we'll stop now. They're probably not an anagram.

[UPDATE: 'blue amends' is a script stage. Ahem. Anyone for coffee?]

The new news though, is that Gavin & Stacy's Joanna Page is also to star in the episode, as confirmed by this charming group pic. There's no word yet on who Page will be playing.
