Production begins on Mike Le's "Patient Zero" starring Matt Smith


"Patient Zero" - the Mike Le scripted film about a global pandemic starring Matt Smith begins production in London today.  Joining Matt in the cast are Natalie Dormer ("Game of Thrones"), Stanley Tucci ("The Hunger Games") and Clive Standen ("Vikings").

Oscar winner, Stefan Ruzowitzky is set to direct the screenplay and "Patient Zero" will be produced by Vincent Newman ("The Betrayed"):
In Patient Zero, an unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies has resulted in the evolution of a new species driven by violence. An inexplicably immune human survivor with the ability to communicate with this new species must spearhead a hunt for Patient Zero in order to find a cure to save his infected wife and humanity.
We can add "Patient Zero" to the list of films starring Matt Smith that we're (im)patiently waiting for: "Lost River", "Terminator: Genisys" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies".  We're in for a treat or two by the sounds of it.

Best of luck to all involved with "Patient Zero" - and we'll keep you updated with further news when it emerges.

Video - Series 9 - Guess who is back plus more guest stars announced



No big surprise - but she's baaaccckkkk.  The BBC announced today that Michelle Gomez is to return for the opening two-parter, "The Magician's Apprentice" and "The Witch's Familiar":
Michelle Gomez arrives in Cardiff this week to re-join the Doctor Who cast and reclaim the role of ‘Missy’ for series 9. She joins Peter Capaldi (the Doctor) and Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) for the opening episode of the series. 
Speaking in Cardiff, Michelle Gomez said: 
“Things have been a little beige since I left Missy behind, so I'm delighted to be putting my Lippie back on. I'm positively dying to see the Doctor again!” 
The second two-part adventure to be filmed, ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’ and ‘The Witch’s Familiar’, is written by the show’s lead writer Steven Moffat, produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Hettie Macdonald (Blink, the Hugo Award-winning Doctor Who episode). 
Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, said: 
“Everybody hide - Michelle Gomez as Missy was an instant hit last year, so she’s straight back to plague the Doctor and Clara in the series opener. But what brings her back into their lives is the last thing they’d expect.” 
Having filmed ‘The Day of the Doctor’ in the series’ 50th anniversary special and ‘Dark Water’ and ‘Death in Heaven’ in series 8, Jemma Redgrave returns to the guest cast for series 9, alongside the Laurence Olivier Award nominee and film, television, radio and stage actress Kelly Hunter. 
A familiar theatre and television actress and one of the UK’s most proficient performers, Clare Higgins also joins the guest cast for the opening of the series. Jaye Griffiths has been gracing our screens in some of the nation’s favourite TV programmes such as Silent Witness and Casualty and also takes up a guest role in the opening episode. 
Other guest stars confirmed for the new series include Daniel Hoffmann-Gill, Jami Reid-Quarrell, Aaron Neil, India Ria Amarteifio, Joey Price, Dasharn Anderson, Harki Bhambra, Demi Papaminas. 
Doctor Who is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One and will be back on-air this Autumn.

Big Finish Announce "UNIT - Extinction" featuring Jemma Redgrave


We may not have a UNIT spin-off tv series - but we'll shortly have the next best thing.  Big Finish have announced that Jemma Redgrave will reprise her television role as Kate Stewart in a brand new series of UNIT audio dramas.  The first boxset will be released in November 2015 - and pre-orders will include a copy of Nicholas Courtney's memoirs "A Soldier in Time" as a free download as supplementary content in Big Finish accounts.  Three additional boxsets will be available at six monthly intervals with all four available as a bundled pre-order:
Big Finish is delighted to announce that Kate Stewart and her UNIT team from the Doctor Who TV series will be starring in a brand new series of audio dramas, in a licensing deal with BBC Worldwide. 
Kate is the daughter of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, and Head of Scientific Research at the Unified Intelligence Taskforce, which investigates and confronts alien attacks on the planet Earth. The role is portrayed by Jemma Redgrave (Dracula, Frankie, Cold Blood) who has appeared opposite Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi on television, and returns for the audio series. 
“We’re thrilled that Jemma is on board for our brand new UNIT adventures,” says series producer David Richardson, “and we feel privileged to work within the universe of New Series Doctor Who for the first time. UNIT: Extinction will showcase all the excitement, drama and wit that viewers of Doctor Who love.” 
“Having worked with the greatly missed Nicholas Courtney and his magnificent portrayal of the Brigadier since the early days of Big Finish, it is wonderful to see the return of UNIT under the Brig’s daughter,” says executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. “We are all very excited about bringing UNIT back to Big Finish with the next generation and look forward immensely to working with Jemma again, who appears in this month’s Doctor Who main range release Doctor Who - Mistfall.” 
“I’m really excited to hear Jemma and her team battling to save the Earth,” says executive producer Nick Briggs. “They’ve been such an important part of the many exciting things to come out of the Doctor Who TV series in recent years.” 
Additional cast members for the first box set, UNIT: Extinction, will be revealed later. This first box set release comprises four hours of adventure, in which Kate and her team confront an alien invasion by the Nestene Consciousness and its army of plastic Autons. 
UNIT: Extinction will be released in November 2015, and is available for specially-priced pre-order, with all pre-orders getting a copy of Nicholas Courtney's memoirs A Soldier in Time as a free download as Supplementary content in Big Finish accounts. 
Three additional box sets will be available at six monthly intervals, with all four available for a Bundled pre-order. For many more details, watch this space in coming months.
You can pre-order "UNIT: Extinction" at Big Finish for £20 (CD or Digital Download).  You can also pre-order all 4 boxsets as a bundle for £80 here.
