Fry is known to be a Doctor Who fan and has appeared in a number of other BBC shows over the years including Blackadder, A Bit of Fry & Laurie and travel series Stephen Fry in America.

In December, Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall admitted Series 12 would not start until 2020 even though they had begun work on it.

“As Jodie Whittaker's Doctor and friends have been winning the hearts of families across the nation this autumn, we've been busy with a whole new set of action-packed adventures for the 13th Doctor.”

He added they couldn't wait to bring "more scares, more monsters and more Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole" - referring to the Doctor's companions.
