The BBC Press Office and Doctor Who accounts shared the first photos of Jinx Monsoon appearing in the show on Wednesday. The show first announced that Monsoon would be cast in the lead role on April 3.
The photos still don’t show what Monsoon’s character will look like, she’s “the Doctor’s most powerful foe yet!” The Doctor has been facing villains for over 60 years, which is a lot. The photos show Monsoon with her red hair in a bun.
She was wearing a black gown with piano keys on the lapel. After winning Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Season 7 of Drag Race All-Stars, Monsoon made guest appearances in the following seasons. As an actor, Monsoon has appeared in an episode of Blue Bloods, the Happiest Season.
The Jinx and Della Holiday Special on Hulu, WOW Presents Plus series Sketchy Queens, and most recently on Broadway as Matron “Mama” Morton in Chicago. Doctor Who returns with a 60th anniversary special in November.
Nkuti Gatwa made his debut as the 15th Doctor following Jodie Whittaker in the special, and David Tennant and Catherine Tate also appeared in guest roles. The Doctor is streaming on Disney+ in the United States.
