Doctor Who Casting & Writer News

The BBC has announced the second bit of casting news for the new season of Doctor Who, along with the first four writers. Matt Lucas will reprise his role as Nardole from the Christmas special as a series regular. Stephanie Hyam will guest star as an unspecified role. Steven Moffat will write the first episode (directed by Lawrence Gough); Frank Cottrell-Boyce will write the second. Sarah Dollard and Mike Bartlett will write for the second filming block (which is not necessarily the second to air). Filming starts next Monday. Matt Lucas commented,
I’m chuffed to bits that Nardole is returning to the TARDIS for some more adventures. I loved acting with Peter and I’m excited to work with Pearl.
Steven Moffat said,
Delighted and slightly amazed to be welcoming Matt Lucas back on to the TARDIS - and this time it’s not just for Christmas, he’s sticking around. One of the greatest comedy talents on planet Earth is being unleashed on all of time and space.
