a real world point of view
Russell Tovey (born 14 November 1981) portrayed Titanic midshipman Alonso Frame in the Doctor Who stories Voyage of the Damned and The End of Time. In his book The Writer's Tale Russell T Davies suggested that the young actor would be one of his choices to play the Eleventh Doctor and DWM 403 contains an article suggesting Tovey was a strong candidate. The role went to another young actor, Matt Smith. Tovey read PROSE: The Doctor Trap for its audio release. He also provided the narration for the sixth series of Doctor Who Confidential.
