The actor posted snaps of the inking which he got during a visit to a tattoo parlour in London during his summer trip to Europe. 

He penned in the caption: ‘I got some ink. Wanted a second tattoo for a while, and thought London was the ideal place to get a proper magician’s top hat.

‘@thomascarlijarlier is simply remarkable, and a true gentleman. Check out his larger work, I’m just amazed by the detail. #grateful @noireinklondon.’ 

He also shared a snap with tattoo artist Thomas as they posed together after the design was complete.

It comes as Neil is reportedly set to take on the role of nostalgic villain The Toymaker during his guest-starring stint in Doctor Who‘s 60th anniversary special.

The star will play the ‘greatest enemy the Doctor has ever faced’, as previously confirmed by showrunner Russell T Davies.

But now, rumours of the character – who last appeared on the drama in 1966 – making a return have been swirling after a shop with the name, Mr Emporium, sprung up on the Bristol set.

According to The Mirror, it features a sign claiming the owner is ‘Toymaker of the Year’ and appears to flog ‘magical items, games and tricks’.

Originally played by Michael Gough in The Celestial Toymaker four-part storyline, it is the mostly missing sixth serial of the third season, with only the final episode held in the BBC archives.

An enigmatic being from outside of space and time, he caused William Hartnell’s first Doctor to become invisible for two episodes and had a number of living toys as his servants.

Having, at one time, been expected to make a comeback in 1986 in an episode filmed at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, plans were scrapped after Doctor Who went on hiatus for 18 months.

Having caught on themselves, one fan wrote on Twitter: ‘Neil Patrick Harris better be playing the Celestial Toymaker! I can’t bring myself to have it any other way! #DWSR #DoctorWho.’

Another added: ‘Neil Patrick Harris is so playing the Celestial Toymaker. #DoctorWho.’

Someone else said: ‘Is it just me who thinks from the costume that Neil Patrick Harris is playing the Toymaker? #DoctorWho.’

A fourth wrote: ‘Okay, I have a theory about Neil Patrick Harris in the #DoctorWho 60th anniversary specials. What if he’s playing a new version of the Celestial Toymaker from the William Hartnell era?’

The BBC declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
