Doctor Who has shared another look at Jinkx Monsoon's villain, who is set to appear in season 14 in "a major role".


It was announced in April 2023 that Monsoon had joined the cast, and it sent social media in an immediate meltdown of joy.

Monsoon first appeared on our TV screens on RuPaul's Drag Race season 5, and she was later crowned America's Next Drag Superstar.

Since then, she has appeared on the show's All Star Series, which she later won. She has also starred in various musicals including Spring Awakening, Rent and Hairspray.

But now, her new role is said to be "the Doctor's most powerful enemy yet". In a birthday message, the official Doctor Who Twitter account posted a photo of Monsoon, sharing a new look at her character.

Speaking previously about her role in the series, Monsoon said: "I've always loved Doctor Who. It was the one show that my husband and I could agree on.

"We're celebrating queer people in the media and that's possibly what's riling up the GOP (Republican Party) so much. They can't stand that we are finally getting our room and our position in the world. We're finally taking up our space and it's p***ing a lot of people off. And I love it."
