Sophia Myles has accepted a new role: She’s going to play Madame Du Pompadour in an episode of the famous BBC TV-Series ‘Doctor Who’ starring Billie Piper and David Tennant. Euros Lyn is directing, rehearsals are currently taking place and shooting will soon start.
There is a very informative fansite about the series: Gallifrey. And it says there that the tentative start date for the airing of Series 2 is March 2006. I believe the episode Sophia Myles will be in is ‘4: The Girl in the Fireplace’ – this one is set in 18th century France, the time and place Madame du Pompadour lived.
Note: I’ve replaced some pictures with high quality ones: Chelsea Flower Show and The Prince and The Pauper – On Set. The large pictures can be found at the beginning of the albums and to see the full version you need to click the image again after opening it. Thanks Mel for these!!
