Today's edition of The Sun states that "Auf Wiedersehen" star Noel Clarke will play the role of Mickey, Rose Tyler's (Billie Piper) boyfriend in the new series. Says The Sun: "Noel ù Geordie WayneÆs son Wyman in the hit comedy ù has signed to appear as Mickey, boyfriend of Rose Tyler, the Time LordÆs feisty sidekick." This confirms a rumor we've heard over the past week, and was confirmed on July 28 by BBC News. According to the "Drama on TV" section of the BBC website, Clarke's previous credits include Metrosexuality, Judge John Deed and Waking The Dead. The website also notes that "Away from acting, heÆs also a keen writer. One of his scripts was recently turned into a short film. He appeared on stage at the Royal Court Theatre in Where Do We Live directed by Richard Wilson. The performance earned him a Laurence Olivier Award for Most Promising Newcomer."
