Re: David Bradley is William Hartnell...

^Not quite the same but when they did The Road to Coronation Street a few years ago, the son of William Roache (Ken Barlow) played the young William. He was almost concurrently playing Ken's long-lost grandson in Corrie, opposite William.

Adding to the confusion, William's other son Linus was appearing as Ken's son and the father of the long-lost grandson. Linus in the 1960s played Ken's other son, Peter Barlow, who still appears in the show but is played by another actor.

The only other similar example I can think of is in Jolson Sings Again, the sequel to The Jolson Story. In JSA, it has a scene where Jolson, played by Larry Parks, meets the actor who is going to play him in a proposed movie called The Jolson Story. The actor is a Larry Parks and is played by, er, Larry Parks.

Wouldn't it be interesting if he played Hartnell in the documentary and played the 1st Doctor in the anniversary special? Nice way to tie into itself! But, I'm getting ahead of myself there!
Moffat isn't that smart to join the dots.
Seriously wouldn't it bother people seeing an actor playing another actor playing a character, then seeing the actor just playing the character? Never mind breaking the fourth wall that's smashing it down with a mechanical digger!
That wouldn't be my impression.

Re: David Bradley is William Hartnell...

The main cast for the docudrama now seems to be complete: Bradley as Hartnell, Claudia Grant as Carole Ann Ford, Jamie Glover as William Russell, Jemma Powell as Jacqueline Hill, Brian Cox as Sydney Newman, Jessica Raine as Verity Lambert, and Sacha Dhawan as Waris Hussein. Also-- and this is probably the coolest part-- William Russell himself will appear as "Harry." Presumably just a cameo, but a very nice touch. Maybe they can work Carole Ann Ford in as well?

Re: David Bradley is William Hartnell...

Awesome! I was hoping they would get him in there for a cameo. Hopefully the same thing can be worked out for Carole Ann Ford.

Where did you read about this?

^Could have sworn I replied to this yesterday, but I guess not: it's from the Doctor Who News Page, which got it from the website of Russell's agent.

One more new bit of casting today: Sarah Winter as Delia Derbyshire.

^Oh, it's nice that they're acknowledging Derbyshire's contribution. I hope we see others like Ron Grainer and Ray Cusick.
