A Pocket Full of Murder

I knew I recognized that voice!

So I'm sitting here watching the BBC webcast of the "lost" DOCTOR WHO story Shada, and it's got Paul McGann (whoo!) and Lalla Ward doing the voices, accompanied by Flash graphics. Which takes a bit of getting used to, but if you stop thinking of it as dodgy animation and start thinking of it as book illustrations, it works. Plus I'm amused by the Doctor/Romana UST. And then this young student character shows up with a lovely light Scottish accent and I start thinking, "I know that voice. Where do I know that voice from?" So once I've got through the "episode" I check the credits and...

It's Sean Biggerstaff!!! And they've got lots of interview videos of him talking about doing the role and his love for DOCTOR WHO.

*jumps out of the way of the stampede as all the Oliver Wood fans go galloping over to the BBC site*

His character in the story looks rather like him, too.
