‘Doctor Who’: Matt Lucas Returns As Nardole For Season 10

14 June 2016 8:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A fan-favorite character is returning to Season 10 of “Doctor Who.” The BBC announced that Matt Lucas, known for playing Nardole, will be making an appearance in the opening episode of the upcoming season.

“I’m chuffed to bits that Nardole is returning to the Tardis for some more adventures. I loved acting with Peter and I’m excited to work with Pearl,” Lucas said in a statement.

Nardole is a human cyborg who made his first appearance in the 2015 Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song.” He was told by Professor Song to find the surgeon needed to extract the Halassi Androvar from the head of King Hydroflax. But instead, Nardole found Doctor Who and took him to the Professor.

Filming for “Doctor Who” begins Monday, June 20 in Cardiff, Wales. Pearl Mackie, who was recently cast as Peter Capaldi’s new companion, will embark on her first week filming the role of Bill.
