Former Corrie star Julie Hesmondhalgh for Doctor Who? Or Sherlock?

Julie Hesmondhalgh

It is hard to believe that it has already been a year since we last saw Julie Hesmondhalgh on our Coronation Street screens, but maybe we could be about to see a lot more of her.

Fans of the hit ITV soap will know that Julie played Hayley Cropper, the much loved knicker-stitcher and devoted wife of cafe owner Roy, up until January last year when a terminal cancer diagnosis resulted in her making the brave decision to end her own life.

Doctor Who – Last Christmas: Nick Frost brings joy to this otherwise dark instalment (Spoilers)

Last Christmas

Although I wouldn’t class myself as a Doctor Who fan I’ve always made time to watch the Christmas special as they’ve often offered a bit of festive escapism. I was particularly excited for this year’s festive offering as I rather enjoyed the most recent series thanks in no small part to the performance by Peter Capaldi. While Capaldi was great as always, I found Steven Moffatt’s story to be rather dark and, were it not for the appearance of Santa Claus, I’d question whether it should be shown on Christmas Day at all.

You can take the Doctor out of the Tardis, but it would seem you can’t take The Time Lord out of the actor!

David Tennant is arguably one of the finest actors in this country, and not just because of his unforgettable stint playing the Tenth Doctor Who – He has gone on to many a great role since those days.
