Billie Piper Joins the Cast of Victorian Horror Series Penny Dreadful

Showtime‘s 2014 series Penny Dreadful is accumulating quite a cast. This latest round of hirings includes one of the most famous of The Doctor’s companions, Billie Piper. Joining the former Rose Tyler are Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies), Danny Sapani (the Misfit in the first two episodes who became a homicidal maniac), and Simon Russell Beale, who played the Home Secretary in seasons 9 and 10 of British series Mi-5, if you were lucky enough to see that show.

Penny Dreadful will be set in Victorian England, which captures my attention right from the start; toss in Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, and I am all in. Here’s the casting announcement:
