The cast of the audio series will feature Ramon Tikram (Stella, Game of Thrones) as Colonel Shindi, Warren Brown (Luther, By Any Means) as Lieutenant Sam Bishop, an “International troubleshooter for UNIT,” and James Joyce (Downton Abbey, The Musketeers) as Captain Josh Carter a “loose canon.”
Most excitingly though is the inclusion of Ingrid Oliver as Osgood, soon to be seen in series 9 of Doctor Who! Osgood is incredibly popular with the fans and your Mad Man team so her continued inclusion in the Doctor Who Universe is a welcome one.
