Cast and episode details confirmed for the two-part Doctor Who series 12 finale
With just four episodes left of the current series of Doctor Who, the BBC have released details of the final two-parter, written by showrunner Chris Chibnall, which features the return of the Cybermen.
Ian McElhinney and Steve Toussaint are set to guest star in both parts. Ascension of the Cybermen kicks things off on the 23rd February, followed by The Timeless Children on the 1st March.
McElhinney made the following statement to the BBC:
“I very much enjoyed my time on Doctor Who. The team were a delight to work with and everyone was very supportive and welcoming. All in all it was a blast.”
Steve Toussaint added:
“It was an honour to play a part in the giant of British (and World) TV that is Doctor Who. What’s not to like? I had such a great time working with Jodie and 'the Fam'; another one off the bucket list!”
Matt Strevens (Executive Producer, Doctor Who) said:
“We were delighted to have Ian and Steve on board the TARDIS for the drama filled two-part finale. Their wide-ranging talent and versatility as actors help bring series 12 to a dramatic conclusion. They were an absolute joy to work with and we can’t wait for viewers to see them in action.”
Doctor Who continues on BBC One this Sunday at 7:10pm with Can You Hear Me? written by Charlene James and Chris Chibnall, followed by The Haunting of Villa Diodati, written by Maxine Alderton and Chibnall, on the 16th February.
