New actors in Doctor Who: David Warner, Liam Cunningham, Jessica Raine and Dougray Scott.

 

David Warner is to appear in the forthcoming season of Doctor Who, reports Doctor Who Magazine.

 

The veteran actor has been a part of extended Who family for a while now, being a stalwart member of the Big Finish team (including playing an alternative Doctor in the 2003 play, Sympathy for the Devil), but this will be his first appearance in the official series.

 

Warner has appeared in such films as The Omen, Titanic, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and Tron, and has notched up TV spots on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Twin Peaks and

Babylon 5, among others.

 

Also appearing in Gatiss' episode is Liam Cunningham, another actor with an illustrious CV, including parts in The Guard, Harry Brown, and Dog Soldiers, as well as a recurring role on Game of Thrones. He also auditioned for the role of the Eighth Doctor, but lost out to Paul McGann.

 

Two extra names have been announced for the previous episode recorded, the first to be filmed with new girl Jenna-Louise Coleman. Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife) and Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II and Bryan Singer's original pick for Wolverine in X-Men) will appear in the Neil (Luther) Cross-penned episode.
