Richard E. Grant is going to be a Doctor Who guest star

It's that time of year again. That time of year when a trickle of details about the new series of Doctor Who is released to ensure that every fan on the planet is whipped into a frenzy of excitement.

At midnight, it was announced that Richard E. Grant (Dracula, The Iron Lady) is going to be playing a bad guy in the Christmas special.


We don't know any more than this at the moment, but as soon as we get more info we'll let you know. There's only a few more weeks to wait until we get to see the first episode of the seventh series, "Asylum of the Daleks", as it premiers on the 14th August and will be broadcast later this month.

Whilst you're waiting for the air date, why don't you remind yourself of how fantastic it's going to be by watching the trailer again?
