Tom Riley on his Series 8 Role & Capaldi

Actor Tom Riley has spoken a little about his upcoming guest role in Doctor Who Series 8.

Riley said that filming on his episode (the third of the run) is continuing this week, but wouldn’t be drawn on who is playing (see filming reports for a good idea).

He told Flicks and the City: “I can’t tell you [what character I’m playing]. The photos are out there and people are putting together what they think I might be playing. It’s just one episode but it’s a really fun and it’s written by Mark Gatiss, so we’re in good hands.

On working with Capaldi he said: “I think Peter’s going to completely revitalise the show -- not that it needed revitalising -- but he’s going to bring something completely different to the Doctor. When you change a lead actor, everything’s going to change, but you can rest assured he’s going to absolutely smash it!”
