It's enough to have TV sci-fi and fantasy fans in seventh heaven.

New Doctor Who sidekick Jenna-Louise Coleman is teaming up with Merlin's Angel Coulby in a new period drama on BBC2.

They'll both appear in Stephen Poliakoff's Dancing On The Edge, which is set in the early 1930s and follows a black jazz band in London.

Coulby, who played Genevieve to Bradley James' Arthur is the singer with the band, who find themselves in favour with the aristocracy of the day.

Coleman, who plays our favourite Time Lord's companion Clara (and also Oswin, but let's not get into spoilers to explain all that) appears in the new drama as Rosie Williams.

Other familiar faces will include Anthony Head (who was ill-fated Uther in Camelot after his vampire slaying days with Buffy).

The leads are Chiwetel (Children Of Man) Ejiofor and Matthew (Watchmen) Goode.

The big names to watch out for otherwise include Jacqueline Bisset, John Goodman, Mel Smith, Caroline Quentin, Anthony Head and Jane Asher.

Dancing On The Edge begins on BBC2 on February 4 at 9pm, with episode two the following night.
