The cast for the first story in our Doctor Who: Classic Doctors, New Monsters boxset has been revealed!
Coming in 2016, Doctor Who: Classic Doctors, New Monsters is a box set of four new stories pitting the Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Doctors against creatures from the New Series of Doctor Who.
Fallen Angels by Phil Mulryne sees Peter Davison's Fifth Doctor do battle with the most terrifying of creatures, the Weeping Angels – first introduced in 2007's Blink.
‘The Weeping Angels have been voted one of the best Doctor Who monsters ever, and it’s easy to see why,’ says producer David Richardson. ‘They are utterly terrifying - and it’s so thrilling to be able to explore an Angels story with an earlier Doctor.’
Joining the Fifth Doctor for his new adventure is Sacha Dhawan (The History Boys, An Adventure in Space and Time) and Diane Morgan (Alpha Papa, Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe) as Joel and Gabby Finch; honeymooning tourists who enlist the Doctor's help when they find themselves stranded in 16th Century Rome. Together they encounter Renaissance artist Michelangelo, played by Matthew Kelly (Bleak House, Relative Shadows) – whose latest statue is looking strangely familiar...
Other cast members include Joe Jameson (Great Expectations) as Piero, and Dan Starkey (Doctor Who's Strax, Wizards Vs Aliens) as The Priest.
‘Phil's ingenious script achieves the impossible and makes a famously visual monster work brilliantly on audio,’ says director Barnaby Edwards. ‘If you liked ‘Blink’, I think you'll like this - it’s very much a chip off the old block!'
