‘Doctor Who’ Season 8: Ben Miller Lands Villainous Role

Ben Miller will be a “storming” villain in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who season eight.

The seasoned British actor has appeared on series such as Primeval and Death in Paradise, and is half of the comedy duo Armstrong and Miller. He will appear in an episode written by Mark Gatiss. “Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa,” said Doctor Who head writer Steven Moffat. “And quite frankly, it’s about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”

Doctor Who season eight will premiere later this year on BBC America and BBC One.
