Tom Riley to star in an episode written by Mark Gatiss

We can confirm that Tom Riley will appear in the new series of Doctor Who, starring in an adventure written by Mark Gatiss.

Tom’s previous credits include Inspector Lewis, the hit comedy Twenty Twelve and Monroe. He played Dave Beethoven in the BBC’s Freezing (above), starred opposite David Tennant in St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold and recently won plaudits for his portrayal of Leonardo Da Vinci in Da Vinci’s Demons. Filming on his Doctor Who episode begins soon.

Mark Gatiss needs no introduction to Doctor Who fans having written many previous episodes including The Unquiet Dead, Cold War and The Crimson Horror. He also wrote and was an executive producer on the acclaimed one-off drama, An Adventure in Space and Time.

The new series of Doctor Who introduces Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor alongside Jenna Coleman who returns as Clara. It begins later this year on BBC One!
