|Front and Capaldi in The Thick of It|
The BBC have announced today that Rebecca Front will guest star in Doctor Who Series 9. The BAFTA award-winning actress has previously starred alongside Peter Capaldi in The Thick of It and Jenna Coleman in Death Comes to Pemberley. Check out the details below.
Rebecca will guest in an adventure that sees the return of the Zygons, although her role in the show is currently closely guarded – possibly by UNIT who also appear in the action-packed two-parter.
It’s Rebecca’s first appearance in Doctor Who and she’ll be seen alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman who return later this year as The Doctor and Clara. She’ll also be joining Ingrid Oliver (Osgood) and Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart) who return in the two-parter written by Peter Harness (Kill The Moon).
Other members of the guest cast for Series 9 include Maisie Williams, Michelle Gomez, Rufus Hound, Paul Kaye and Jaye Griffiths.
The BBC Cymru Wales produced drama will return to BBC One this Autumn with further casting to be announced in due course.
