With work on Series 11 well underway, everything is being kept very secret by Chris Chibnall and the team. But it seems that the guest stars are just too excited to keep the secret.
Mack recently appeared on Radio 4’s Loose Ends with already confirmed Series 11 star Sharon D Clarke. During the show, he let slip:
“Not only am I excited about the idea of someone being in Doctor Who, I am also possibly gonna be in it as well.”
“I wasn’t supposed to say anything, but because [Sharon] said that I thought ‘Well I’m gonna say it then!’ Neither of us should have said it.”
According to Mack, it’s a “blink and you’ll miss it” part, but he still seems to be chuffed at the possibility of being in the show:
“I’ve just been a fan all my life, so I just harassed them until they gave me a little part in it.
“I even sent Chris, who runs the show, Chris Chibnall, a video of me getting out of my own Tardis, which I own, with a Dalek, which I own as well! And I said ‘Come on!’
It’s genuinely a true story – I’ve got a Tardis at home, it’s not bigger on the inside. And I said ‘Come on, give me a part.’ And he said ‘Alright!’ So that’s what you need to do if you want a part in something. Just send a video to someone, you’ll get the part.”
“Now I’m not gonna get the part because they’re gonna say ‘We told you not to say anything!’ But because Sharon said it I thought I’m allowed to say it.”
