He was cast in Doctor Who as Jeremy Baines, a student whose mind is taken over by a species of aliens called The Family of Blood. He had been suggested as a possible candidate to play the Doctor when David Tennant left the role, based on a comment made by Russell T Davies in an interview with PR Wire.
