Doctor Who Magazine made further confirmations of more guest stars that will feature in various Series 7 episodes, including Scottish-born actor Dougray Scott. Scott is widely known for his role in blockbuster movie Mission Impossible II, and the role that got him noticed in America: his part as Ian in the third season of US hit television comedy-drama Desperate Housewives.
Scott will star in episode 11 (therefore, six episodes into Jenna-Louise Coleman’s tenure as companion) – hotly rumoured to be titled ‘Phantoms of the Hex’ – written by Neil Cross and directed by Jamie Payne. Executive producer Caroline Skinner told DWM the episode is, “a hugely funny, and rather fabulously spooky, script”. Also confirmed for this episode is Call The Midwife lead actress Jessica Raine.
Jenna-Louise Coleman’s first episode as companion Clara is Episode 6 of Series 7, and will broadcast on Christmas Day, meaning the subsequent episodes are likely to broadcast the following Saturdays.
