Game of Thrones actress Indira Varma has signed on to star in the new series of Doctor Who. The series features Ncuti Gatwa as The Doctor and Millie Gibson as the new companion Ruby Sunday.

Not much is known about Varma’s character at the moment but is reported that she will play a “mysterious” character known as The Duchess.

Filming for the new series is currently underway.

Sharing her excitement about joining the cast, Varma said, “I’m thrilled to be in Doctor Who and particularly excited to be crossing cosmic paths with Ncuti, as The Doctor, and look forward to creating interplanetary mischief with him.”

“I loved playing Suzie Costello for Russell T Davies in Torchwood so am thrilled to be entering this world again.”

Showrunner Davies added, “I’m overjoyed to be reunited with Indira after our Torchwood days, and this part is truly spectacular! A whole new audience will be hiding behind the settee when the Duchess unleashes her terror.”

Varma is no stranger to Doctor Who fans, having appeared as Suzie Costello in Russell T Davies’ spin-off series Torchwood.

Varma was most recently seen in the Netflix thriller series Obsession alongside Richard Armitage and Charlie Murphy, starring as Armitage’s on-screen wife Ingrid Farrow.
