“It’s an absolute honour to be part of Doctor Who, one of the most iconic shows on television and wow what a dream come true!”

Showrunner, Russell T Davies added:

“This is what Doctor Who’s all about, brand new talent from the next generation, and no one’s more talented than Lenny! He joins the TARDIS team just in time for the Doctor’s greatest nightmare, so hold on tight!”
