The BBC announced today that David Suchet will appear in the new series of Doctor Who. He will play a character called “the Landlord” in an upcoming episode of the long running sci-fi show. The episode will be written by Mike Barlett (whose written King Charles III and Doctor Foster).
No details have been revealed about Suchet’s character. A newly-released image shows him dressed in a stripped plum colored suit, perhaps a node to both Capaldi and Tennant’s incarnation of the Time Lord. Maybe, he’ll be playing another Time Lord or perhaps he’s another interpretation of the Dream Lord.
Time will tell.
