Neil Patrick Harris unveils his latest TV character: “I’ll try my hardest to do my worst”

His previous alter egos have included Doogie Howser, Barney Stinson, Dr. Horrible, Hedwig, and Count Olaf.

Now Neil Patrick Harris has landed his next role: a villain on the BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who.

The five-time Emmy winner posted a photo of himself in character earlier today on Instagram and wrote: “My current gig. Never looked more dashing. Thank you for inviting me into your Whoniverse, @russelltdavies63 . I’ll try my hardest to do my worst. This Doctor has no idea what’s in store. And even if he does… Who cares? Ha ha ha HA ha-ha-ha!”

Showrunner Russell T. Davies also shared a statement about Neil joining the special: “It’s my huge honor to open our studio doors for the mighty Neil Patrick Harris… but who, why, what is he playing? You’ll just have to wait. But I promise you, the stuff we’re shooting now is off the scale. Doctor beware!”

He wrote separately on Instagram, “Neil Patrick Harris, welcome to Cardiff! Playing the greatest enemy the Doctor has ever faced. Such a great actor, such a great man, it’s an honour and a hoot. Have fun.”
