Doctor Who - Doctor Who Stars Juggle U.s. Tv Role
One member of the Doctor Who family has replaced another in director Guillermo del Toro's new U.S. Tv drama The Strain.
David Bradley, who recently portrayed William Hartnell - Tv's first Doctor - in An Adventure in Space and Time, has signed up to play Professor Abraham Setrakian in the upcoming series after John Hurt, who is currently playing the War Doctor in the sci-fi franchise stepped down.
Bradley's new Tv character is an enigmatic Holocaust survivor, who is called upon to help disease experts contain the outbreak of a mysterious viral outbreak in New York City.
The Strain, which is scheduled to hit U.S. Tv screens next summer (14), will also feature Mia Maestro, Sean Astin and Corey Stoll.
