Fans of the STARZ TV series Da Vinci’s Demons will no doubt be delighted to learn that its star, Leonardo himself—otherwise known as Tom Riley—will be making an appearance in the next season of Doctor Who.

The Doctor Who site confirmed today that he’ll appear in a new adventure in Peter Capaldi’s first season as the Doctor, and that it has been written by Mark Gatiss.

Here’s Tom in action:

You may also recognise Tom from his appearance in “Loose Ends,” in an episode of the Olympian comedy Twenty Twelve, and starred in St Trinians 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold alongside David Tennant.

He will also appear later this year in Kill Your Friends, the tale of a music business executive at the height of Britpop.
