Doctor Who Series 6 Casting News and Episode 4 Title Revealed!

There are a few casting news and tidbits about the upcoming series 6 of Doctor Who today.

The fourth episode of Series 6 of Doctor Who is called What Are Little Boys Made Of? (this is a disturbingly lame title in my opinion).

Child actor Jamie Oram has been cast as Harry in this episode. The young actor has made a few appearances in commercials in the UK but this will be his first television role. The character of Harry is described as "a troubled young boy who has a nervous disposition".

Actor Daniel Mays, who played Jim Keats in Ashes to Ashes will be playing Harry's dad. The actor will later be seen in BBC's upcoming series Outcasts.

Emma Cunniffe will be playing Harry's mother. She previously appeared with Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston in 2002's Flesh and Blood. She also appeared on The Bill and Casualty.

Written by Mark Gatiss, What Are Little Boys Made Of? is currently in production in Cardiff.

  1. What Are Little Boys Made Of? Let's open him up and see! Mwahahahahahaha

    But seriously, I think it's about this 19th century lullaby:
    What are little boys made of?
    Frogs and snails
    And puppy-dogs’ tails,
    That’s what little boys are made of.
