Barratt On The Box

Julian Barratt will be appearing in a new TV series with Karen Gillan.


The British actress, probably best known on these shores for playing Doctor Who‘s Amy Pond, will be playing  Daisy in season 3 of NTSF:SD:SUV::

The American TV show – short for National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle – was filming scenes in London’s Parliament Square with Gillan and the rest of the crew on Monday. And a curly-haired Julian was spotted as part of the cast.

For the uninitiated, NTSF:SD:SUV:: is a quarter-hour comedy series that parodies police procedural and action film genres, which has previously featured a guest appearance by Rich Fulcher. The new series (which will air on Adult Swim later this year) will include all manner of oddness, including the characters surgically swapping faces with each other, kidnapping an alien, faking their own deaths, getting into the viral video biz, unfreezing a former 1960’s radical, boarding Comic-Con Air, and heading into the dangerous British District of San Diego for a sweeping NTSF:SD:SUV:: two-part epic.

Julian also suprised his twitter followers today with his 5th ever tweet and this photo from the filming – of himself and a character from the show, Trent Hauser. By the sound of it, Julian plays someone by the name of Lockheed. As he says:  “Trent and Lockheed – one gun / one brain : two police forces.” Cryptic.

  1. What a handsome devil!


  2. Once again you have delighted me with information about those I love to keep track of (in a non creepy way). Since finding this site, I’ve enjoyed all of your posts. Thanks for all you do. Mwah! ~Lauren Itkin


  3. He looks quite distinguished! I would love to see an older Barrett and Fielding in a Boosh special when the time is right. Howard Moon would be a more eccentric version of himself and Vince – well Vince would be a slightly tragic aging hipster. A bit like myself! Ha! It would be genius! It has to happen I scream from the rooftops – oh here come the doctors again!
