BBC News reports that comedian Frank Skinner will appear on the next season of Doctor Who. Details on his character have not been revealed, but he will appear alongside Peter Capaldi's Doctor in an episode being written by Jamie Mathieson.
Speaking on his casting, Skinner stated: "I love this show. I subscribe to Doctor Who magazine, I've got a Tardis ringtone, a 5ft 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."
Moffatt added: "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."
The new season of Doctor Who featuring Peter Capaldi as The Doctor will premiere later this year.
