EastEnder Joins Who Cast

Geezer, cockney, geezer! Former EastEnder Lee Ross will be joining the cast of episode 3 of the new series of Doctor Who.

The actor, who is perhaps most well known for playing the murdered Owen Turner in the BBC soap, won the role in the same episode that Hugh Bonneville is set to guest star as a pirate.

According to reports Ross will play a character called Boatsswain.

Filming for the third episode is currently underway after Steven Moffat switched the running order, swapping this episode with the Mark Gatiss yarn allegedly called What Little Boys are Made of.

As well as appearing in EastEnders Ross has also appeared in several shows with a link to Doctor Who such as Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes (co-creator Matthew Graham will be writing the two-parter Rebel Flesh and Gangers), Moses Jones (which featured Matt Smith and Shaun Parkes, who appeared in the two parter The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit), The Catherine Tate Show (I’ll let you figure that one out) and Press Gang (the show created by Steven Moffat) – and was murdered in EastEnders by The Runaway Bride‘s Don Gilet.
