- ‘Doctor Who’ casts Dougray Scott in guest role
The Daily Mail snapped a photo of the Scottish actor (who has also appeared in Desperate Housewives, Heist, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) will feature in the Neil Cross penned episode 11, which appears to be a period drama of sorts.
He will star alongside new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman in her sixth episode. The Mail suggests that he could be in a cameo role, but the newspaper also suggests that anything and everything will kill you – so we’re just sticking with the photo evidence and considering Scott as a guest star of a yet indeterminable length.

- Dougray Scott being lined up for Indiana Jones inspiration Allan Quatermain
The Glenrothes-born Mission Impossible 2 and Desperate Housewives actor, 46, is apparently top of the list to take the role in the newly announced 10-part series based on Sir H Rider Haggard’s classic sequence of adventure novels.
English-born professional big-game hunter Allan Quatermain was the protagonist of 1885 novel King Solomon's Mines and its various prequels and sequels.
It was another Scot, Sir Sean Connery, who last played the character in 2003 graphic novel adaptation The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – though his version of the character was a very different take.
The new series is being produced by Scottish film and television boss Douglas Rae.
Rae, whose previous TV work includes Mistresses, Camelot and Monarch of the Glen, explained: “Allan Quatermain is one of the greatest adventure heroes in all of literature.
“In the years since his introduction, he has subsequently inspired many hugely successful characters and franchises, including the Indiana Jones series.”
