Alex Or Not?

Greetings Martians, as time creeps up on us all everyone is waiting in anticipation to find out who will play Alex Drake. Suggestions have been previously thrown around as to who will get it, but at this stage there has still been no formal announcement made by the BBC or Kudos. This announcement I expect to be made in the coming weeks, with filming commencing in July.

Up until now the hot favourite for the role was Thandie Newton, of Mission Impossible II and ER fame. We even did a poll on it here as to who you thought would be suitable. Unfortunately for Thandie she just did not cut it here, although the results were very close and nearly tied.

When the poll was run, there was only a couple names being suggested. Wikipedia has recently amended their Ashes To Ashes page, to advise us that Alex will be played by Keeley Hawes of Tipping the Velvet and Spooks fame. What it neglects to do though is mention where it sources this information. Keely's own Wikipedia page has not been up-dated, this may though simply be an oversight. One thing is for certain and that is, we will find out who Alex is very soon now.

'Til next time Martians, peace.
