A new clip was released from the opening episode of Doctor Who Series 12, Spyfall, featuring Sir Lenny Henry.
The Doctor’s companions Yaz and Ryan pose as journalist Sofia Afzal and photographer Logan Jackson to interview Daniel Barton (Sir Lenny Henry) in his office.Barton is a very rich and powerful tech genius magnate akin to Jeff Bezos who grew up in a council estate in Bromsgrove and now owns a private airport and fleets of aeroplanes and motorbikes.
There also seems to be some sort of scanner added to the lens of Ryan’s Camera.
Is Barton an alien or a villain? The answer to both questions remains unclear but he is certainly under suspicion from the Doctor and her friends. There’s a hint to his character in the clip in that that he enjoys insulting his friends when he treats them to flights.
Spyfall airs on New Year’s Day at 6:55 p.m. on BBC One and 8:00 p.m. on BBC America.
