Frank Skinner Wanted Role On Doctor Who

Frank Skinner, noted comedian and football fan, said on The Graham Norton Show that he had tried to land a role on Doctor Who, of which he is also a big fan.

“…I didn’t need a big part – a monster or a lunar rock – but I would love to be able to tell my grandchildren I was in it,” he said, but went on to say that his manager didn’t manage to get him a role. 

It’s not clear yet when Frank tried to get a role or cameo on the show. It’s very possible that he will still land a role of some kind in a future series, or possibly even the show’s 50th Anniversary. He wouldn’t be the first comedian on the show, both David Walliams and Bill Bailey have had small roles in recent years.
