Doctor Who has added four exciting guest stars to the roster for its upcoming season seven "part two" who'll be bringing even more timey-wimey goodness to the Doctor's (Matt Smith) mad adventures in the TARDIS. One's a Star Trek (and sci-fi) veteran, the other a Game of Thrones former smuggler, one almost extended his claws as the ferocious wolverine, and the fourth played a midwife.
According to the newest edition of Doctor Who Magazine, out in the U.K. right now, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman will be joined by three super-awesome guest stars: David Warner, Liam Cunningham and Jessica Raine. The fourth guest star, Scottish actor Dougray Scott, was announced just a few weeks back. (If you guys somehow managed to guess right before reading this and looking at the tags: 10 shiny robot points to you!)
David Warner (Titanic, Star Trek V, Star Trek VI, Tron, Next Gen's masterpiece two-parter "Chain of Command Parts I and II") and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth, aka the Onion Knight on Game of Thrones) will be joining forces (or not) in the Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Being Human)-penned "historical" episode.
This episode has been teased to include the words "meat," "klaxon" and "Vienna." Try to get your heads wrapped around that one.
Actress Jessica Raine (who positively shone in the BBC drama Call the Midwife) will appear in a Neil Cross-written episode alongside Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II). It has apparently already been filmed.
Those episodes are set to air in 2013.
So what do you think about this shiny new roster of Doctor Who guest stars? Are you excited about those episodes?
