Posted Filed under

The identity of an actor who appeared in the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary teaser which aired on BBC One on 29 April is discovered.

Jamie Hayden, also known as Jamie Cho, was cast in the role of Colonel Chan in a Doctor Who 60th anniversary special which will air in November 2023.

Since he is dressed in UNIT soldier gear and all the scenes in the teaser seem to be from the first special, we will likely see his glowing eyes in the first of the three anniversary specials which the teaser indicates is titled The Star Beast.
