Doctor Who - Sanjeev Bhaskar Cast In Series 8

The BBC Media Centre has reported that Sanjeev Bhaskar has been cast in Series 8 of Doctor Who.  No news on what type of character he will be playing but I'm sure we will find out soon enough.  Here is the official press release.

Popular comedian, actor and broadcaster Sanjeev Bhaskar is to join the cast of Doctor Who when the series returns to BBC One on 23 August.
Speaking about the role, Bhaskar said: “I’m thrilled to have made a small contribution to and now be part of the Doctor Who universe. Another dream box ticked!”

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, says: “I’m completely thrilled that Sanjeev Bhaskar is coming to the aid of the Doctor. The danger is never deadlier than in a finale episode, and the Time Lord is going to need all the help he can get!”

Filming is well underway for Series 8 of Doctor Who. Guest stars confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series include Michelle Gomez, Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris.


  1. It's the dream of a lot of actors to be on Doctor Who.

    1. Seems to be. I think not would be pretty cool to be on that show even as an extra.
