Frank Skinner to appear in ‘Doctor Who’

by | May 16, 2014 | All, TV News

The BBC have announced that Room 101 host Frank Skinner is the latest name confirmed to guest star in an episode of the new series of Doctor Who this Autumn.

Skinner says: “I love this show. I subscribe to Dr Who magazine, I’ve got a Tardis ringtone, a five-foot cardboard Dalek in my bedroom and when I got the call saying they wanted me to read for the part, I was in the back of my tour bus watching episode three of The Sensorites. I am beyond excited.”

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, says: “It’s no secret that Frank’s been pitching vigorously to get into Doctor Who for a while. He’s been volunteering to be ‘third monster on the left’ as long as I’ve been in this job. But now, in Jamie Mathieson’s sparkling script, we finally have a part that can showcase all of Frank’s famous wit and charm. Hopefully he’ll get out of my garden now.”

Other guest stars confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series include Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris.

Doctor Who returns this Autumn to BBC ONE.
