According to The Sun, Holby City actor Hugh Quarshie is to play a character named Solomon in a two-part story in Series Three, alongside Spooks actress Miranda Raison.
Reporting a week earlier on Raison's signing, the BBC site says she is to play a showgirl in one episode set in 1930s New York. The Raison story on the BBC site also says that Ryan Carnes (Justin in Desperate Housewives) has a role in the next series.
The same edition of The Sun reported that post-punk/art-rock band Kaiser Chiefs were avowed Doctor Who fans. It quoted leader Ricky Wilson as saying: "We were on tour all last year but I haven't done anything this year except watch telly. I loved Doctor Who, it's ace."
The brief piece said the group joined David Tennant for an interview in the NME Rock 'n' Roll Yearbook.
