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?

still researching…

This is a list of Rupert’s work that we’re still researching – things we’ve heard about or seen glimpses of, but don’t have enough confirmed details about to post. If you can help us with more information and links or images, we’d very much appreciate it!


  • The Ministry, a film by Ben Kent, featuring Rupert and Jasmine Hemsley – the team who brought us Helen and Ben!
  • Rupert filmed something in England in November 2013 for a project to be released in 2014 … though we still don’t know what! And he didn’t seem all that certain that he wouldn’t end up on the cutting room floor. {sad face}
  • Rupert filmed a movie in the US in 2015. No further details yet, but this was mentioned in an interview, and he mentions ‘a new comedy-drama’ in another interview.
  • Rupert was off on a new work project as of early December 2016, though we don’t know what! Perhaps the Bet Victor ad…?


  • Feeding Time at the BAC (Battersea Arts Centre), as listed in the Company programme. This is perhaps the production which ran from 22 November to 11 December 2005. Listing for the production on UK Theatre Web. I can’t find a full cast list, but other actors have referenced the production on their CVs.
  • Three’s a Crowd at Shepherd Churchill Hall, as listed in the Company programme. This might be one of Rupert’s joke listings, but there’s a “Broadway revue” with this title that dates back to 1930. The Hall is real enough, and can be found at Harrow school. So perhaps this is one of his early / amateur efforts…?
  • Rupert possibly? probably? hopefully! appeared in performances of The Show Must Go On! concert at the Palace Theatre on 13-15 November 2020 and 20-24 January 2021. This is a collection of cast performances from various West End shows, including Dear Evan Hansen, with profits going to Acting For Others and The Fleabag Support Fund. With no specific cast lists, I’m left with more questions than answers! More info and ticket sales here.

As I said above, any help would be awesome!
