FALSE POSITIVES: Doctor Who (2010)

I have since heard from Rupert Himself that he never actually appeared in Doctor Who, and he has no idea where this IMDB listing came from. Which is a damned shame for all kinds of reasons!


Well! This popped up on Rupert’s IMDB page, so I assume it’s all legit … and it gives me something more to ask him about at the next con I attend!

Rupert apparently had an uncredited role as a Roman in this episode of Doctor Who.

  • The Pandorica Opens (19 June 2010)
  • Directed by Toby Haynes

I just squinted my way through the episode, and think I’ve spotted him in the background of the scene where the Doctor faces down a whole universe of spaceships …

Rupert as a Roman in Doctor Who ... the tall guy in the middle there?

Actually it’s really interesting to see the difference between shots involving the main cast, all crisply focussed, and shots involving others, which are quite blurred (damn it).
