Ben Miller Cast as Series 8 Villain
Commenting on his role, Ben Miller says: "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."
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, adds: “Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it's about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”
Miller's other half of Armstrong and Miller, Alexander Armstrong has appeared in the Doctor Who universe in both The Sarah Jane Adventures as the voice of Mr Smith and in The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe.
