Well well well, Sophie Winkleman – best known for her role as Big Suze on Peep Show – has been cast in Back To Earth. No news yet on what sort of character she’s playing, other than that it is a “key role”. I’m sure the rumourmongers will all spunk themselves at the thought that she’s playing Kochanski, but I don’t think that’s terribly likely. We know bugger all else at this stage, other than that she’s been on set since the shoot started on Monday. Marvellous.
Of course, Sophie’s been in the news as recently as last Sunday, when it was announced that she’s marrying some minor royal. The timing of this announcement might play to the show’s advantage – not only have they cast a fine young comic actress, but also one that’s in all the papers and being talked about by people who otherwise wouldn’t know who she was.
This is certainly an exciting piece of casting, and one that bodes well for the ambition and the scope of these new specials.
Elsewhere on Dave’s site, they’ve added their usual Wednesday Dwarfy bonus content. There’s an article all about love, which sadly misses out Camille and Nirvana Crane, but other than that is quite good. There’s also a Cat quiz, which apparently had teething troubles when it first launched, but seems to be alright now.
And the best thing is, I made it through the whole article without mentioning how incredibly sexy Sophie Winkleman is.
