Will the 50th see the Fall of Arcadia?

According to his online CV, actor Ankur Sengupta has a couple of minor roles in the special: one as a UNIT soldier and the other, more intriguingly, as an Arcadian refugee.

The 11th Doctor also visited it off-screen with Amy, as mentioned in Vincent and the Doctor. Although Amy alludes to it as being one of the nice places she’s been to, so presumably this was pre-war.
