Earlier this year, the BBC announced that award-winning actress, singer and two-time RuPaul’s Drag Race winner, Jinkx Monsoon, would be appearing in a major role in the new series of Doctor Who and today, BBC has revealed a first look of her in character, who is the Doctor’s most powerful enemy yet!
Jinkx has cultivated an international fanbase after winning two seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race, including an All Stars season where she was crowned Queen of Queens, competing against other winners of the show.
Jinkx joins “Doctor Who” after completing her sell out run on Broadway, where she made her highly-anticipated debut as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton in Broadway’s longest-running show, Chicago. Her run on Broadway was a historic moment for the LGBTQIA+ community, as she became the first drag queen to play the role of Mama Morton, breaking box office records in her extended 8-week run.
Here’s a first look at Jinkx Monsoon in Doctor Who:
“Doctor Who” returns in November 2023 with three special episodes with David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor to coincide with the 60th anniversary. Ncuti Gatwa’s first episode as the Fifteenth Doctor will then air over the festive period. Also starring in the upcoming new series will be Anita Dobson, Aneurin Barnard , Kate Lethbridge-Stewart and Michelle Greenidge.
“Doctor Who” will premiere exclusively on the BBC for the UK and Ireland. Disney+ will also be the exclusive home for new seasons of Doctor Who outside of the UK and Ireland.
