Harry Potter star David Bradley will be in the new Doctor Who eps as announced at @RadioTimes covers party by Mark Gatiss


He's been rumoured for the part pretty much since it was announced, today was the read-through and a multimedia assistant on twitter seemed to confirm him and Jessica Raine as Hartnell and Lambert, only for the tweeter to delete it and claim it was speculation.

Sorry, but what is AAISAT?

EDIT: Just found out in the Series 7 thread.

That would be interesting if true, i remember when the season 7 trailers started showing last year some people got excited at the brief shots of Bradley from Dinosaurs on a Spaceship thinking that maybe he was playing the first doctor.

Excellent casting.

1st Doctors Tardis set being built, actor cast.....nice timing for the 50th anniversary episode as well me thinks. Shame not to make extra use of the set and class actor to shoot a few special scenes for later use.

I thought I had heard that somewhere.

There's a rumour going round that he has been cast as Hartnell. Allegedly there was a readthrough today.

Yep

Thrilling and moving day. I'm spent! Casting announced tomorrow for 'An Adventure in Space and Time'!

Looks like the above might be correct.

I've never actually thought about it before but in retrospect Billy Hartnell couldn't be played by anyone other than David Bradley, so I do reckon it's going to be him announced tomorrow and what perfect casting it will be.

Now I wonder who will play Carole Ann, Jacqueline and William Russell...

I'm sure Bradley will enjoy the change as he's basically been playing Filch everywhere for years. (Ashes to Ashes, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship)

Its a drama Jamie, in the same vein as the one on the creation of Coronation Street the other year.



That said I also hope we get to have a good in depth Who documentary covering the entire history.

I don't see the point in another documentary on the classic series. We've had enough. Plus, so many of the people involved in making it are now dead and couldn't contribute.

I'd sooner see Return to Devil's End or The Making of Silver Nemesis or Resistance is Useless released on DVD.
