Posted Filed under

Several Doctor Who Series 12 cast members for Episode 1 have been discovered. We have a list of the known actors so far.

From a slate photo and set dressing at the filming at Swansea Guildhall, on February 18 and 19, Episode 1 is believed to be a spy drama.

And what is a spy drama without a few agents? Actress Dominique Maher will play Agent Browning, according to her online CV.

Maher was first listed as “Browning” on IMDB, a character in Episode 1.

Maher’s costume as Agent Browning is a protective services uniform with a black visored cap, bulletproof vest and holster. She record ADR (additional dialogue replacement) for Agent Browning with an Australian accent on August 27. ADR is the replacement recording of an actor’s voice when the recording from the original performance is unusable.

The Doctor might have a secret agent identity herself if her psychic paper was required. This post is from the woman who worked on the props during the Episode 1 filming in South Africa.
