If you had told us, back in Dennis Pennis’ mid-1990s spoof interviewing heyday, that his alter ego Paul Kaye would one day be starring in a TV adaptation of Game Of Thrones and the new Doctor Who series, we’d have likely said, ‘Doctor Who isn’t even on! And there Is no show of that one book by that fantasy guy! Begone, time-travelling demon!’ But we would be sadly wrong (except maybe about the time-travelling bit), as Got veteran Kaye is indeed part of a sprawling cast for the two-part launch for the new series of Who.The BBC has announced that the ninth series of the show – at least since the Doctor came back to screens in 2005 – is now shooting at its usual Cardiff locale, with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman once more starring. Kaye, Thoros in Thrones, will be one of the main guest stars for the two-parter alongside Morven Christie, »

The BBC has announced that the new series of Doctor Who has begun filming ready for its return to the small screen this autumn. In addition, they have also revealed a selection of guest stars who will feature in the two-part opening episode.
Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones) is one of those guests involved, and he said: “As a kid of the 1970s, the two shows you always watched were Top of the Pops and Doctor Who, they were unmissable…..I actually wrote a song called ‘Looking for Davros’’in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek. I got to present Totp back in the mid ‘90’s and landing this role in Doctor Who completes the dream double. Peter is a perfect Doctor and I’m loving every minute of the experience, even the five hours in make-up. What a treat, best 50th birthday present ever! »

Doctor Who could be filming in Spain for series nine of the sci-fi drama.
Director of photography Ali Asad confirmed on Twitter that he was on a "location recce" in Spain, after announcing his involvement with two episodes of the series earlier this month.

He previously wrote: "I am a huge Dr Who fan from the age of 12. It is a dream come true to be asked to shoot a block of series nine. It's going to be fantastic."
Doctor Who has previously filmed in Spain on several occasions, including series eight episode 'Kill the Moon'.
Matt Smith's Doctor also filmed there twice, for both 'A Town Called Mercy' and 'Asylum of the Daleks'.
Paul Kaye (Pusher, Dracula Untold) certainly made an impression as Red Priest Thoros of Myr in the third season of Game Of Thrones, but even though he and the rest of the Brotherhood are still (presumably) alive and kicking in Westeros, we didn't see or hear from them in season 4, and there's been no word of Kaye or any of the other actors shooting scenes for season 5. Now, according to the Independent, the British actor will be joining Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord and Jenna Coleman’s companion Clara in Doctor Who as a character named Prentis. He's expected to appear at the start of series nine in first episode “The Magician’s Apprentice”. For the night is dark, and full of Tardises. »
Paul Kaye is set to appear in the upcoming ninth series of Doctor Who, with Den of Geek reporting that the actor is set to portray a character called Prentis, sparking speculation that he’ll appear in the series 9 premiere ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’.
Since his time as shock interview Dennis Pennis, Kaye has appeared in the likes of Being Human, Ripper Street and Game of Thrones, where he plays Thoros of Myr. He was also seen on the big screen last year as part of the cast of Dracula Untold.
Doctor Who returns to the BBC later this year.

He will be appearing in an episode from the first chunk of series 9, which is being filmed currently. The popular speculation is that episode one is the likeliest contender, as his character’s name – Prentis – could easily be an alusion to the episode’s title The Magician’s Apprentice.
That does seem incredibly on-the-nose, though, so could this be a red herring of some sort? Only time will tell on that one.
The Game of Thrones actor is shooting a guest role on the sci-fi drama, the BBC has confirmed to Digital Spy.
Kaye originally rose to fame for portraying comic creation Dennis Pennis, an outrageous celebrity journalist, but has more recently taken on acting roles in Being Human (2011), Game of Thrones (2013) and Ripper Street (2013).
