Chris Addison to star in `Doctor Who` series 8
London: Actor Chris Addison is set to appear in the upcoming eighth series of sci-fi series `Doctor Who`.
The comedian previously appeared alongside new Doctor Peter Capaldi in Armando Iannucci`s political comedy `The Thick of It` and the big-screen adaptation `In the Loop`, reportedly.
Addison, who was briefly tipped as a possible contender to play the Time Lord last year, will star in the two-part series finale `Dark Water`/`Death in Heaven`, written by Steven Moffat.
"It`s a 35-year dream come true - 7-year old me would be going off his nut and I`m not far behind. It`s a great way to spend a couple of weeks, working with people I`ve always wanted to work with on a show I`ve loved all my life. My bucket list is quite a lot shorter now," Addison said.
