Joanna Page to give a Royal performance in Doctor Who 50th Special?

April 5th, 2013 by Saxon Comments

We know already that former Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page will be part of the cast for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

It was confirmed last week along with the news that David Tennant and Billie Piper will also return for the 50th Anniversary special. The three actors join Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and John Hurt for the episode.

Page, who recently gave birth to her first child, is seen above at the read-through for the episode with David Tennant, Jenna-Louise Coleman and Matt Smith. The BBC is yet to announce which character Page will play, but recent photos taken during filming have given us some clues as to her mysterious characters identity.

Now, there’s a coat covering her costume so admittedly once we see it in the show things could look quite different. But with the striking red hair and gold gown, it’s hard not to make the connection to one of England’s most badass monarchs, Queen Elizabeth I, in her coronation gown.  Whether Page turns out to be human or alien, I’m sure she’ll have a pretty interesting role in the special. But as of right now? I’m putting my money on Liz the First. After all, didn’t the 10th Doctor make several references throughout his tenure about marrying Elizabeth I? Perhaps we will finally see why she is just so angry with him…
