Steven Berkoff Cast in Series 7!

Bad guy character actor Steven Berkoff cast in Doctor Who Series 7

Responsible for scaring the hell out of kids for years with this portrayals of uncompromising villains, Steven Berkoff has been cast in Doctor Who Series 7!

You’ll probably know Berkoff most from Octopussy (1983), in which he played the bonkers General Orlov, or Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) where his sadistic role placed him opposite Sylvester Stallone.

Even Brian May is scared of him!

Latterly, Berkoff has appeared in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine but his career has also seen the actor cast in The Avengers and UFO. He also played a notable role in the second episode of the revived Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) in 2000.

Episode 4 is where we will see Berkoff in an episode written by Chris Chibnall (42, The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood) and directed by Douglas Mackinnon (The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky), but we’ll have to wait for the story title…

Also cast is in the episode is Jemma Redgrave, a member ofthe famous acting family who you may recognise from the Victorian medical drama Bramwell or The Buddha of Suburbia.

Would it be safe to assume that Berkoff is the episode’s bad guy? Time will tell…
