It’s been a long time coming, but thanks to Doctor Who Magazine and the actor’s official website, we now know that David Warner has finally been cast in Doctor Who!
Warner has a considerable history of acting, appearing in earth-based drama as well as a variety of genre material from The Omen to Tron, Twin Peaks to The Outer Limits, and various versions of Star Trek. Currently shooting alongside Game of Thrones‘ Liam Cunningham (pretty big news in itself!), Warner is appearing in Mark Gatiss’ historical episode for Doctor Who Series 7, expected to air in early 2013.
This isn’t the first time Warner has appeared in the show, but is the first time we’ve seen his face.
Previously, the veteran actor has played a (rather wonderful) alternative Doctor in Big Finish’s Doctor Who Unbound series, while more recently he was the voice of the villainous Lord Azlok in Dreamland the animated Tenth Doctor adventure from 2009.
