Farscape’s Ben Browder To Guest On DOCTOR WHO!
Farscape and Stargate SG1 alum Ben Browder has signed and is currently shooting episode 3 of Season 7 of DOCTOR WHO!
Shooting in Spain, the episode takes place in the Wild West era in which a “half-human half-robot Terminator-style beast which patrols a Victorian-era western town”. No word on who Ben will be playing in the episode.
Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvil appear in this episode as the Ponds along with Adrian Scarborough, Dominic Kemp and Rob Cavazos. The episode was written by Being Human creator and author of the previous Who eps School Reunion, The Vampires of Venice and God Complex Toby Whithouse.
The desert area of Spain where they are shooting has been used for decades as the locations for several Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns so it’s a perfect choice.
One interesting rumor I’ve seen is that Sophia Myles (THE Girl In The Fireplace) is also in Spain and show runner Steven Moffat has repeatedly mentioned her recently prompting a lot of rumors that she will be the next companion for the Doctor when the Ponds depart.
