It seems like Arrow is grabbing some more Doctor Who actors…John Barrowman already has a recurring part, but now Alex Kingston, who has played River Song for several series, has reportedly signed for a recurring role on the CW series. She is set to play Dinah Lance, the ex-wife of Detective Quentin Lance and mother to Laurel, who returns after abandoning her family when her other daughter died about the Queen’s yacht.

What is interesting is that in the comics, Dinah Drake (not Lance) was the original Black Canary, and her daughter Dinah Laurel Lance, who went by her middle name, succeeded her as the Black Canary…but we don’t know if that is where the story will head…

Farscape and Stargate SG-1 alum Browder to join Arrow

by on Nov.07, 2012, under Television

First it was Captain Jack Harkness. Now it’s Commander John Crichton and Lt. Colonel Cam Mitchell. Actor Ben Browder, who starred in Farscape and later the last couple seasons of Stargate SG-1, and more recently had guest appearances on Chuck and Doctor Who, will join the cast of Arrow as Ted Gaynor.

In the DC Comics universe, Gaynor was a bodyguard working for the Blackhawk Squadron in the Blackhawk comics. In Arrow, he will be John Diggle’s (Queen’s bodyguard) former commanding officer in Afghanistan, now working as a bodyguard with the “Blackhawk Squad Protection Group”, as an apparent nod to the comics.
