Mark Gatiss in The Wedding Of River Song

PLEASE NOTE: This is a revised version of the speculative news piece posted HERE.

Although Mark Gatiss has already appeared twice (Professor Lazarus in The Lazarus Experiment and an uncredited voice in Victory of the Daleks), the Sherlock writer/actor is to make another appearance in Doctor Who. This year's finale The Wedding of River Song sees Gatiss star as Gantok (pictured here) and will play The Doctor in a tournament of "Live Chess" on Vegas 12.

Actor Simon Callow also returns to the show for the finale, reprising his role as Charles Dickens; previously seen in the Series One story, The Unquiet Dead (written by, wait for it, Mark Gatiss).
