Farscape and Stargate SG-1 star Ben Browder to guest star this week in Doctor Who

Do I have to remind you that Ben Browder is going to guest star this week in Doctor Who?

I hope not! I hope you are already ready for the show and you are expecting it!

The actor known for his roles in Farscape and Stargate SG-1 will play the cowboy Isaac in Wild West adventure A Town Called Mercy, the episode that’s going to be broadcast on BBC One on Saturday.

“It’s amazing that Doctor Who can attract these international stars,” Doctor Who writer Whithouse told SFX. “He was fantastic. I was really, really pleased that we got him because it’s an odd part – that character Isaac.

“Ben has this rather beautiful innate nobility that he manages to just convey, very simply and very economically. It was absolutely how I saw the character, so I was really thrilled with him, and delighted with his performance.”

Toby Whithouse also joked that he had avoided Doctor Who‘s previous jaunt to the Wild West – 1966’s William Hartnell adventure ‘The Gunfighters’.
