Newsround

Hooray! Actual news again, for the first time in an age. For even though filming continues on the third series, there's very little set reports or photographs to report on. A massive thank you to Doctor Who Magazine then for a massive update on casting....

Episode 3 & 4 feature Souad Faress, Gregg Sulkin, Eleanor Tomlinson, Toby Parkes, Rai Rajani and Kate Fleetwood.

Meanwhile episodes 5 & 6 stars David Tennant as the Doctor, with Nigel Havers, Zienia Merton (who appeared in Doctor Who way back in 1964 during Marco Polo - playing Ping-Cho).

Floella Benjamin returns to the role of Professor Celeste Rivers for the third time in episodes 7 & 8 - and it's far from a cameo! "At last, she's going into action with Sarah Jane!" Producer Nikki Wilson reveals. Starring alongside her will be Adam Gillen (as the Professor's assistant Toby Silverman), Donald Sumpter (as Erasmus Darkening - "one of the greatest and most chilling villains we've ever seen"), Tony Boncza and Amelia Clarkson.

Also in 7 & 8 is Callum Blue - star of Dead Like Me, and boyfriend of Billie Piper's Hannah character in Secret Diary of a Call Girl.

The fifth story, made up of episodes 9 & 10, features former Coronation Street star Suranne Jones, with Jeff Rawle and Liza Sadovy.

Best of all, the same story has a cameo appearence from Lizo Mzimba - the BBC's Entertainment Corrospondent.
