According to various news sources, Freema Agyeman of ‘Doctor Who” and “Torchwood” has signed on to play a prosecutor on the UK version of Law & Order. As previously reported on this blog (here), Jamie Bamber of Battlestar Galactica fame will also be appearing. The show is set to be on UK’s ITV.
An article from Wired.com on this subject is below. What was really a nice surprise to me is that the video they refer to in their article is none other than my very own “doink-doink” recording. Now how cool is that?
Who, BSG Stars Lay Down London's Law & Order
By John Scott Lewinski July 26, 2008
What would that Law & Order "clonk-clonk" noise (see video) sound like with a British accent?
We'll find out this fall when the Dick Wolf-produced legal franchise heads overseas with ITV's Law and Order: London. Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones in Doctor Who and the second season of Torchwood) is signed on to portray the show's in-court prosecutor.
Agyeman was originally scheduled to join John Barrowman as a regular part of the Torchwood cast for the show's short, five episode third season, but her new lawyer gig might prevent her from chasing aliens and monsters in Cardiff.
Chris Chibnall, the show-runner for Law & Order, was formerly head writer of Torchwood and stole Agyeman away from that Russell T. Davies-created show. There's no official word yet if Agyeman will be able to find time to take part in Torchwood's production schedule.
Jamie Bamber (Apollo from The Sci-Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica) will join Agyeman in the Law & Order cast with the show set to premiere in late fall.
