Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry confirmed as guest stars on the time-travel show.
Both Fry and Henry have joined Doctor Who for reportedly major roles. They join a list of former guest stars which includes James Corden to Maisie Williams, among others.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that series 12 of the hit show had finally finished filming, with Jodie Whittaker at the helm as the famous Time Lady.
“It was absolutely brilliant to be welcomed into the fantastical world of Doctor Who,” said Henry. “The nearest I have been to the TARDIS was when I played the Caribbean Doctor in the Lenny Henry Show, so as a lifelong (hiding-behind-the-sofa-type) Doctor Who fan, this is a very special moment for me.”
Added Fry, “Short of being picked for a British space exploration program, and I readily concede that I’m past the age where I’d be considered (if I was ever the right age for such a posting), then being in an episode of Doctor Who will certainly do as a very sweet second-place excitement.”
Season 12 is set to premiere in early 2020.
