Alright, so Steven Moffat just confirmed that Ben Miller will be appearing in an episode written by Mark Gatiss.
Here’s what Moffat had to say:
“Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it’s about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”
So he’s going to be the bad guy. Now, if we are assuming that they are talking about the only Gatiss story that we have heard anything about so far, episode three, then what can we take from this? Previous reports state that the episode could be titled Robots of Sherwood and feature characters from the Robin Hood legend, so… Is Miller going to be a classic Robin Hood bad guy? Or an alien playing the part of one?
