Yes, it’s that time of the week again: Friday (just about), a chance for the DWC to spotlight Doctor Who-related guys and gals on Twitter all fans should follow. #FollowFriday. It’s right there in the title. And to celebrate the Cybermen’s 50th anniversary – and the fact that it’s Cybermen Week at the Doctor Who Companion – today’s #FF goes to… (Drum roll please.)
You might not be familiar with his name, but you’ve definitely seen him time and time again. His Doctor Who credits alone include Doomsday, A Good Man Goes To War, Asylum of the Daleks, The Rings of Akhaten, Last Christmas, and The Girl Who Died. Because Jon plays various monsters, including Daleks, Judoon, the Mire, Ood, Whispermen, and – of course – Cybermen, the latter in stories like The Next Doctor and The Pandorica Opens. You also played a Zygon duplicate in The Zygon Inversion, an ATMOS worker in The Sontaran Stratagem/ The Poison Sky, and a member of UNIT in Death in Heaven (one killed by Missy). Here’s his showreel.
Pretty impressive, eh?
Jon’s also a regular at conventions, and happily chats to fans about acting with Doctors, as well as performing at events like Doctor Who Live, Doctor Who Proms, and the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular.
He was also the Dalek in Pearl Mackie’s first scene!

And he seems to have really enjoyed playing the Mire…
Kind words from Peter as the temperature hits 40 degrees!
