Garrick Hagon in classic Doctor Who: The Mutants

Classic Series Guest Shoots in Spain

Garrick Hagon in classic Doctor Who: The MutantsYou probably haven’t heard of Biggs Darklighter – he’s a Star Wars character who was excised from the first film in 1977 for timing reasons. Interestingly, however, he was played by Garrick Hagon, who also appeared in the 1972 Doctor Who serial The Mutants, opposite Jon Pertwee.

But what has this got to do with Doctor Who in 2012?

Spanish Doctor Who fan @GenshikenSpain has tweeted that the actor – restored to the Star Wars universe when the Special Editions were released – is on the current location shoot.

Which we think was something along the lines of  “Garrick Hagon? Ole!”

Certain Rob Cavazos has tweeted:

It’s good to see some veteran character actors being cast in Doctor Who, but of course the big question as far as Spain goes is this: has Sophia Myles’ luggage turned up yet?
