CONFIRMED - Silurians to return in Doctor Who: Series Five

In an interview with Perthshire advertiser, Scottish actress Neve McIntosh says that she is playing a Siluran in the second two-parter (written by Chris Chibnall) of Doctor Who: Series Five.

Edinburgh-raised Neve (38) will be appearing in two episodes of the next series of Dr Who beside new time-traveller Matt Smith.

It’s a dream-come-true for the sci-fi fan, who reckons the latest occupant of the Tardis has the potential to out-strip his predecessors Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant.

She said: “I think he’s going to be really good, the best yet out of the new guys.

“The stories have got a bit darker. I play twins, and they’re big lizardwarrior women.

“They’re one of the Silurian tribes that have been undisturbed under the earth. And of course we get disturbed.

“It’s the first time I’ve worn prosthetics but I’m still recognisable if you know me well enough.

“But there’ll probably be lots of people going, ‘Who the hell is that?’”

Neve, who also appears alongside Welsh actor Robert Pew and The Kumars at No 42’s Meera Syal, impresses as a genuine Who expert.

She confessed: “I remember the end of Jon Pertwee and the awesome Tom Baker, who were bridged by Sarah-Jane.

“A friend gave me a copy of the first Silurian story with Jon and the Sea Devils, and they came back later with Peter Davison. It’s great. I love Dr Who.”
