Samantha Spiro to make Doctor Who cameo

Samantha Spiro will make an appearance in this series of "Doctor Who".

The Olivier Award-winning actress has announced she will have a role alongside the current Time Lord Peter Capaldi in the current instalment of the sci-fi series, but she's remaining tight-lipped on the the details surrounding her part.

Speaking on "BBC Breakfast" on Tuesday (05.04.2017) Samantha said: "I'll be in this series of "Doctor Who". I can't say how, I can't say who, I can't say where."

Unlike other guests including David Suchet and Ralph Little, the 48-year-old's appearance was only just revealed and not included in showrunner Steven Moffat's episode guide.

David is set to make his debut in "Doctor Who" this week as The Landlord, who shows Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie) and her friends the perfect house share.
