Well the news on the prequel just keeps coming today, earlier I posted about the air date being set at the 23rd of November. Now I bring you news that the Scottish actor Robert Carlyle has been cast in the prequel. Carlyle has previous been in Trainspotting, The Full Monty, The World Is Not Enough and 28 Weeks Later among others. No word yet on his character, or how big the part is, although it’s expected his character won’t make any appearance in the seventh season proper.
