Ben Miller added to Doctor Who series 8
Ben Miller is set to appear in one of Mark Gatiss' episodes of Doctor Who series 8...
Ben Miller, of Armstrong And Miller fame, is following the path set by his comedy partner and taking on a guest role in Doctor Who. The long-time Who fan will appear in an episode of the show's eighth series since its revival.
As for which episode, all the BBC has confirmed so far is that it'll be one of the adventures penned by Mark Gatiss for the new run. Gatiss is down for two stories though, but that's as concrete as the information gets for the time being. Furthermore, the exact nature of Miller's role is thus far undisclosed.
Miller said, in a BBC statement, "As a committed Whovian I cannot believe my luck in joining the Twelfth Doctor for one of his inaugural adventures. My only worry is that they'll make me leave the set when I'm not filming".
Doctor Who series 8, starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, begins in the autumn.
