Chris Addison will guest star in the finale of the new series of 'Doctor Who'.

He previously co-starred alongside Peter Capaldi – who plays the new Doctor – in 'The Thick of It' and 'In the Loop'.

Addison said he was thrilled to be offered the part.

He told Radio Times: "'Would you like to be in 'Doctor Who'?' is the easiest question I've ever been asked.

"It's a 35-year dream come true – the seven-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," he added. "My bucket list is quite a lot shorter now."

Addison was previously considered for the role of Time Lord himself.

The BBC also released a tranche of new images from the opening episode of the new series, entitled 'Deep Breath'.
