Legendary actress Dame Diana Rigg, who starred as Emma Peel in "The Avengers," has been cast in a guest-starring role on "Doctor Who," reports the BBC.

Rigg will appear with her real-life daughter, Rachael Stirling, marking the first time the two have worked together on screen, according to the story. She and her daughter will play a local from Yorkshire and her daughter, who share a "dark secret," the story notes.

"We have never before worked together because the offers have not been tempting, but when such a funny and original script comes through you know the time has come," Stirling said, according to the report.

Stirling has worked on the British television shows "Tipping the Velvet" and "Women in Love."
