From Playing A Doctor To Playing With The Doctor

ShearsmithActor and comedian Reece Shearsmith got to enter the Doctor Who universe tangentially two years ago when he portrayed Patrick Troughton, the actor who played the Second Doctor, in the film An Adventure In Space And Time.

Now Shearsmith has been cast in a guest spot for an upcoming episode of Doctor Who, written by Mark Gatiss… who also wrote An Adventure In Space And Time. The episode in question is supposed to be a very scary one that Gatiss said has "been brewing in the dark recesses of my mind for a while now."

Doctor Who season 9 returns September 19th.
