Chris Addison cast in ‘Doctor Who’ season finale

Addison who is a regular on 'Mock The Week' was briefly tipped for the role of the 12th Doctor just prior to Peter Capaldi being revealed as the next Doctor Who.

Chris Addison who was one of Peter Capaldi’s co-stars in ‘The Thick Of It’ is to reunite with Capaldi for the season finale of ‘Doctor Who.’

Addison who is a regular on ‘Mock The Week’  was briefly tipped for the role of the 12th Doctor just prior to Peter Capaldi being revealed as the next Doctor Who.

The actor will guest star in the two-part series finale ‘Dark Water’/’Death in Heaven’, written by Steven Moffat.

Speaking to Radio Times, the ‘Mock the Week’ star said: “‘Would you like to be in Doctor Who?’ is the easiest question I’ve ever been asked.

“It’s a 35-year dream come true – 7-year old me would be going off his nut and I’m not far behind.

“It’s a great way to spend a couple of weeks, working with people I’ve always wanted to work with on a show I’ve loved all my life. My bucket list is quite a lot shorter now.”

Capaldi’s debut as the new Doctor will air this Saturday, August 23 at 7.50pm on BBC One.

    Wonderful! I just finished The Thick of it and In The Loop. Binge watched all that over two days. Personally, I hope Moffat incorporates the word “omnishambles” into DW. It would be a great non-sweaty homage to Malcolm that sounds Whovian too. 🙂

      Lol “omnishambles” is now a really common word used in UK Political talk shows a lot. Andrew Niel, who does a show here in the UK called ‘This Week’ and ‘The Daily Politics’ uses it a heck of a lot. So it would not surprise me if they did put it into ‘Doctor Who’ at some point.
