Star of US cop series The Wire Clarke Peters will voice the native American Night Eagle in the upcoming BBC Doctor Who CGI animation Dreamland, reports the broadcaster.
Peters – who plays Lester Freamon in the US drama – also recently appeared in the BBC hospital drama Holby City, and took the part in Doctor Who partly for his son who is a big fan.
“Now my son is watching it avidly and he asks me to come and sit down with him just to watch Doctor Who,” he said.
A date for transmission of the 45 minute animation has yet to be announced – however it will be premiered via the BBC Red Button on and on the BBC Doctor Who website, with a serialised episodic version also expected.
