Celestial Toymaker returns to Doctor Who?

Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) has joined the cast of Doctor Who for the 60th anniversary in 2023.

A photo of the Emmy and Tony award-winning actor was shared on social media, and many fans (myself included) were reminded of the Celestial Toymaker from William Hartnell's era. The titular villain was played by Michael Gough (Batman) and pitted his wits against the First Doctor.

Russell T Davies, Showrunner said “It’s my huge honour 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!”

Harris has previously worked with Davis on It's A Sin for Channel 4.

David Tennant (Tenth Doctor) and Catherine Tate (Donna Noble) are returning to Doctor Who, which is currently filming in Cardiff, with Ncuti Gatwa as the next Doctor after Jodie Whittaker leaves the long-running sci-fi series in the autumn. The upcoming new era is a co-production with Sony's Bad Wolf (His Dark Materials).

Who do you think Neil Patrick Harris is playing? The Celestial Toymaker or someone else? Let me know in the comments below.
