Following Series 12’s epic two-part opener Spyfall, its has been announced that Matthew McNulty and Warren Brown will star in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who
These two well-known television actors join a stellar cast of guest stars who feature in this latest series of Doctor Who. Series opener Spyfall has already seen the likes of Stephen Fry and Sir Lenny Henry CBE join the Doctor Who universe. What’s more, Sunday’s episode ‘Orphan 55’ will see James Buckley (The Inbetweeners, White Gold) and Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad) guest star.
Viewers will recognise Matthew McNulty from his recent roles in The Terror and Versailles, as well as his upcoming role in upcoming Channel 4 drama Deadwater Fell.

Warren Brown will also be a familiar face for fans of Luther, Liar, and most recently, Strike Back. Ahead of his appearance in Doctor Who, Brown has said, “I was on such a high when I got the call from my agent, then such a low when I had to keep it top secret and couldn’t tell anyone! I can honestly say though it was and has been one of the most fun jobs I’ve ever had to date!”
Few details of the episode in which Brown and McNulty will star have been revealed thus far, but it will see the Doctor and friends working to solve a mystery which threatens the entire planet.
Doctor Who executive producer Matt Strevens has said: “We are totally thrilled to be welcoming Matthew and Warren to the cast. Their talent and versatility sets this action adventure alight.”
