There has been a fair bit of secrecy around the guest stars for Series 10. While David Suchet and Ralph Little were announced quite early on, Michelle Gomez and John Simm’s return were both kept secret until the big reveals by the BBC. Although both of these are playing returning characters, the BBC have revealed a new actor who will join the cast: Samantha Spiro!
During an appearance on BBC Breakfast, the actress confirmed that she will be making an appearance later in the series, although she was still keeping quiet about who she will be playing:
“I’ll be in this series of Doctor Who. I can’t say how, I can’t say who, I can’t say where.”
The Olivier Award-winning actress recently starred as Melessa Tarly in season six of Game Of Thrones and has previously appeared with Doctor Who writer Mark Gatiss in Sky comedy Psychobitches.
So, just why has Spiro’s appearance been kept quiet until now and who will she be playing? Only time will tell.
