Some very interesting news has surfaced online today. According to various media sources, Claire Bloom will appear in David Tennant’s last episode(s) as (highlight to reveal) the Doctor’s mum!
According to her manager, the actress, 78, is ‘filming at the moment’, and is said to be over the moon about landing the role.
“The script is a very closely guarded secret,” her close friend told the Daily Mail. “The producers are desperate for Claire’s appearance to be a surprise.”
Bloom first rose to fame in 1952, when she was chosen by Charlie Chaplin to appear in his film, Limelight. Since then, she has become one of Britain’s most loved actresses, and is probably best known for her portrayal of Blanche DuBois in the play A Streetcar Named Desire.
According to the reports, the BBC have refused to comment on the rumours, so treat the story as that - a rumour - until there’s any official word!
