DAVID MORRISSEY

The acclaimed actor David Morrissey is perhaps most recognised for his roles in 2008’s Doctor Who Christmas special, The Next Doctor, as well as the BBC drama State of Play, Red Riding, and Blackpool.

His breakthrough roles came with the dramas Our Mutual Friend and Hilary and Jackie. Film parts followed, including roles in Some Voices and Captain Corelli's Mandolin, before he played the critically-acclaimed roles of fictional MP Stephen Collins in State of Play, and Gordon Brown in The Deal by leading screenwriter Peter Morgan. The former won him a nomination at the British Academy Television Awards and the latter a Best Actor award at the Royal Television Society Awards. His film roles have not always been acclaimed; his appearance as the male lead in Basic Instinct 2 was widely criticised, and The Reaping bombed at the box office. Since then, he has had leading roles in Cape Wrath, Sense and Sensibility, and Red Riding.

David is also a director; he has directed Sweet Revenge and Passer By for the BBC. His feature debut, Don't Worry About Me, premiered at the 2009 London Film Festival.

TOBY WHITHOUSE

Toby Whithouse is best known as the creator of the highly acclaimed BBC Three supernatural drama series Being Human, which is one of the channel’s most popular programmes. The third series is set to be broadcast in January 2011. 

He also created the Channel 4 drama No Angels, and has written for BBC One’s Hotel Babylon and Doctor Who. His Doctor Who episode, titled School Reunion, featured the return of the robot dog K-9 and Sarah Jane Smith. Toby also wrote the 2010 episode, The Vampires of Venice

As an actor, he was a regular in the early 1990s BBC One drama series The House of Eliott. In 1997, Toby appeared on stage in the West End, co-starring with Gene Wilder in Laughter on the 23rd Floor by Neil Simon. Frustrated at what he perceived as a lack of quality in many of the scripts he was sent to read, he took to writing in his spare time between acting roles, eventually writing a play which was performed as the opening production of the Soho Theatre. His first television work was writing an episode for the ITV drama series Where the Heart Is.

Toby went on to write for the Doctor Who spin-off series Torchwood, with the 2006 episode Greeks Bearing Gifts.
