The Day of the Doctor - Meet Osgood

Thanks to BBC Pictures
The BBC have released more promotional pictures from the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor - click on the images here for bigger versions. The photos feature lovely actress Ingrid Oliver who plays UNIT scientist Osgood (perhaps a relation to Tom Osgood from The Dæmons?). Oliver is the star of comedy show Watson & Oliver who have featured Doctor Who content on their show, watch HERE.

Eagle~eyed readers will have, perhaps, noticed a very familiar looking scarf... Check out some pictures from filming on The Day of the Doctor that feature Ingrid HERE. The seventy-six minute special, written by Steven Moffat, simulcasts around the world on Nov 23 at 7.50pm [GMT].

Let me guess: Osgood is the next "eccentric scientific adviser" taking the place of the campy-geek from PLANET OF THE DEAD? ;)

Oh dear. I hope I'm wrong. Sometimes a joke just doesn't work, and I think PotD proved that conclusively. Hey, it's a human who worships The Doctor! Okay.....and then? Next?

"the campy-geek from PLANET OF THE DEAD"?! Malcolm was brilliant! Named a unit of measurement after himself, genius!

Wondering if there's an Oswin/Oswald/Osgood link with Osgood? Either way, she certainly wears the scarf well :-)

The best part was that she used the scarf the same way Tom Baker's Doctor did.

I think she's Sgt Osgood's daughter. It fits far too well.

As half-speculated elsewhere, given

(i) she's called Osgood (not too far away from Oswin)
(ii) she has a prettier sister (why did this detail come out on Saturday ? The plot was far too tight for a Zygon mention of the 'prettier sister' not to be important)
(iii) her role / background in UNIT got no further mention

we have to conclude she's a sister of one version of Clara.

So we have a 'Clara's sister' theme to look forward to along with the much bigger Return Of The TIme Lords one .... not all at once, of course !

Must admit I missed the scarf references even after two viewings of the show ... time for a third.

(While that doesn't rule out something like a Sgt. Osgood daughter theory, of course, that's frankly too unimportant to be likely).
