The Bafta-award winning actress, who has starred in Up the Women, Death Comes to Pemberley and Inspector Lewis, will be reunited with The Thick of It’s Peter Capaldi in an episode in the upcoming ninth series of the popular Saturday night drama.
It is not know yet what her part will entail in the episode that sees the return of the Zygons. According to a BBC press release, her role is closely guarded, “possibly by UNIT who also appear in the action-packed two-parter”.
The episode will also see the actress reunited with Jenna Coleman after the two starred in Death Comes to Pemberley in 2013, with Front playing Mrs Bennett, the mother of Coleman’s Lydia Wickham.
The BBC Cymru Wales produced drama will return to BBC One this autumn with further casting to be announced in due course.
