We’re still several months away from Jodie Whittaker’s run as the 13th Doctor concluding, but many Doctor Who fans are already looking ahead to what’s in store for the 60th anniversary. With Russell T. Davies returning to the showrunner’s chair following his time in that position during the 9th and 10th Doctor eras, there’s already a handful of goodies that have been announced for this special event, including both David Tennant and Catherine Tate returning to the BBC series. Now today brings word that Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary has added a major American star who’s also well known for playing a doctor: Neil Patrick Harris.

Davies wasn’t willing to disclose just yet who Neil Patrick Harris is playing, but we do know how his character will look. See for yourself below!
