Frank Skinner Guest Stars in Series 8
Skinner says: "I love this show. I subscribe to Doctor 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."
