There are no plans to revive the alcoholic Withnail character, but Grant will star later this year in a Doctor Who Christmas special. It is believed he'll play the villain.

He played the Doctor in 2003 online animated series Scream of the Shalka, and starred as the unofficial "Tenth Doctor" in a 1966 Comic Relief sketch.
