Jamie Glover, who will play William RussellThe actor Jamie Glover is to play the role of William Russell in the drama An Adventure in Space and Time, agent Curtis Brown has confirmed. Jamie (the son of Julian Glover and Isla Blair) has made a number of theatre and television appearances, most recently on television as Dr. Michael Evans in Father Brown and on the stage as Garry Lejeune in Noises Off. However, he is perhaps most recognisable from television as deputy head Andrew Treneman in the BBC series Waterloo Road.

With the role of Carole Ann Ford confirmed to be Claudia Grant earlier this week, Jacqueline Hill is now the only member of the original TARDIS crew still to have an actress announced.

Production-wise, Philip Kloss has now been confirmed as the Film Editor for the drama - his Doctor Who credentials include the David Tennant episodes The Doctor's Daughter, Midnight and The End of Time, and also Day One of Torchwood: Children of Earth. Meanwhile, Suzanne Cave is Costume Designer - her credits include Bert and Dickie (which featured Matt Smith), both The Hour and The Hour 2, Cricklewood Greats and Silent Witness.


Filming has continued this week in a private residence in Chipstead made up to look like a 1960s home; writer Mark Gatiss teased followers with a profile of the actor David Bradley who plays William Hartnell and was present at scenes shot here. Today marked the first day filming for Brian Cox, who plays Sydney Newman, with scenes being filmed at the 1950s-style Rivoli Ballroom in Brockley.
