    I suspect probably not, there is normal cat and cat with a pink hoody.

    Really nervous where they are going to go with it for shock and comedy value.

    Just something in the gazpacho-soup set report said (below)

    Makes me nervous when someone says it will be interesting to see how people react given the previous series twists.

    Obviously the cat-lady has worms.

    Probably wasn't deleted or it wouldn't be there anymore, somehow you just ended up quoting the post and thats all

    I'm going to be deliberately vague here to avoid any spoilers...

    This report mentions a specific character coming back (not a major character). They are mentioned by character name rather than the actor name though I suppose that it could be the actor returning to play a different character... anyway... does anyone know (without revealing too much to anyone else) if this is true? Or a red herring?

    I think that was a joke bud.

    I reckon the type of scene not seen since Series 7 (try saying that 3 times fast) is akin to the 'shaking tent' in Stoke Me A Clipper.

    Doesn't seem like something that would be interesting to see how people react to it as the set report suggests

    Probably won't be a zombie since zombies don't have personallity, she will probably be some genetically engineered lifeform but her Sinister motives and drives for existing will probably be used for comedy so and the question is what is Doug gonna do with that.

    Or is the vii-ish secret related to a characters sexuality?

    I don't think we need a reprise of 'Bent Bob'..

    Phew, looks like the IMDB page has been updated.

    I think we can surmise this was a mistake, then.

    For those who didn't see it, IMDB listed Harmony (from Twentica) as a character in Can of Worms. Seems as though they've corrected that now.

    The Radio Times listing for the episode on Thursday 27th October basically spoils the identity of the returning "character", so I won't link to it.

    Tempted to look...

    Question, though. How do we know for sure there is a recurring character? What's the source of this?

    The set report a few posts back lists a returning character, but I (as others have) doubt its validity and have written it off as a joke.

    EDIT: Doug did warn us on Twitter that there was a spoiler in RT so it is likely to be true.

    Having looked at said spoiler it has made me less keen on it....I hope the episode defies my expectations, but I kinda would have liked something a bit less recycled.
