Islanders are wanted as extras in a film shot in the Isle of Man starring former Dr Who actor David Tennant.

More than a 100 Manx people are being sought to appear in the movie, The Decoy Bride.

Ex-Isle Film Agency is holding auditions and is looking for people who have that "remote island look".

The casting firm's Bev Lawley said: "We don't want young Dr Who fans, they need to be of the older generation."

The Decoy Bride is set on both Scottish island Hegg and the Isle of Man and tells the story of a superstar actress going to marry her British boyfriend - played by David Tennant - away from the glare of the world's media.

The romantic comedy needs local farming characters in the background, Ms Lawley said.

Casting sessions are being held at the Methodist Church in Loch Promenade, Douglas, later.
