Actor James Norton is busy these days, currently appearing in period drama Grantchester, but there’s one show in particular he would love to appear on again: Doctor Who! Norton appeared as ill-fated Russian soldier Onegin opposite Matt Smith’s Doctor in 2013’s “Cold War.” He says:
“I’d also love to work with Peter Capaldi. He’s a great actor. I have a lot of respect for him.”
It’s no secret, my character met a fairly gruesome end in my Doctor Who episode. Maybe they could quietly recast me as someone else. It was a lot of fun.
Perhaps they could put a mask on me. Or they could perhaps bring back Onegin again, from the alien’s belly…
If Doctor Who would want me back I would happily to go back.”
The next episode of Doctor Who, “Mummy on the Orient Express,” airs at 8.35pm Saturday, 11 October, on BBC One and 9/8 CST on BBC America.
