Mischievous RTD & Moff
Starting this Thursday is Russell T Davies’ latest venture, the interlinked projects Cucumber, Banana and Tofu. We’ve now seen the first episode of each, and it’s very much worth making arrangements to make sure you don’t miss them.
Davies has been promoting the shows over the past couple of weeks, and on Saturday, he appeared on Graham Norton’s Radio 2 programme as part of that. And whilst on the show, he was asked about a Doctor Who film.
“I think it should be in cinemas immediately”, Davies replied. “It would be glorious. Imagine queueing up at the cinema to go and see a Doctor Who film”.
So would he be interested in writing it? “Yes please! If we could get the lawyers and contracts flying now. You know, I would do that because I think there’s a big leap to be made”.
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.
Also starring in the episodes will be Morven Christie who recently played the role of Amanda in the crime drama Grantchester and also 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.
