Some new developments now known for the new Doctor Who series. The latest issue of DWM confirms our earlier story about Joe Ahearne being the director for the third block (which it says is comprised of episodes 6 and 8) and notes that the Daleks are in one of these episodes, as well as confirming that George Gerwitz is the first assistant director for block one. New details are that actor Rupert Vansittart plays the role of General Asquith, while Naoko Mori (who plays Saffron's best friend Sarah on "Absolutely Fabulous") plays Dr. Sato; both of these actors were in the very first scene shot for the new series. Also, the BBC Doctor Who website recently confirmed (in their "WhoSpy" photo series) that the make-up assistant on the series is Linda Davie and the sound recordist is Ian Richardson (with two other chaps, Tim the production runner and someone named Dafydd.)
