Why hasn’t Philip Madoc been in the new Doctor Who?

by Stephen Hobley on May 29, 2010

Philip Madoc in "The War Games", along with Harold Meeker...

As an old-school Doctor Who fan, I know that Philip Madoc has been in more episodes than I can remember (and as Han Solo once said ” I don’t know, I can remember quite a lot…” – or something like that).

I’ve recently been watching “A Mind To Kill” – starring Mr Madoc as a kind of Welsh Inspector Morse – and the thought occurred to me “How come Philip Madoc hasn’t been offered a role in the new Doctor Who?”

Then I saw this:


Yay! How cool is that? – Steve Moffat is literally reading my mind…

Hi Stephen! This is Mary, Chip’s girlfriend. Seeing this post jogged my memory about something. When we saw the new Doctor Who episodes and I noticed who the head writer is, I was quite excited as I’m also part of Clan Moffat. It’s not a surname I see too often around here so I can’t wait to see more of his work! Thanks for introducing this great show to us. 🙂
