Nicholas Burns

Nicholas BurnsDerbyshire actor Nicholas Burns appeared as the very nasty Lord Sutcliffe in the 2017 12th Doctor story Thin Ice – causing the Doctor to thump him.

He is also well known for having played the title role in the 2005 Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker sitcom, Nathan Barley, as well as the roles of Martin Weedon in the popular comedy Benidorm and Alex in No Heroics.

Nicholas has had recurring roles in the TV series Absolute Power, Roman’s Empire and the sketch show Man Stroke Woman. He also made an appearance in The Mighty Boosh as the ruler of the planet Xooberon; in The IT Crowd as Jerome, the director of a musical called Gay!; and in the episode “At Bertram’s Hotel” of Marple as Jack and Joel Britten.

The addition of Nicholas to our lists of guests for Whooverville X means that we now have major guest stars from episodes that have featured each of Doctors 9 to 12.

We are delighted to be welcoming Nicholas to Derby QUAD on Saturday 1st September and offer our thanks to Matthew Campbell of M&M Famous Faces, for helping us to bring you this excellent guest.
