Anjli Mohindra and Laura Fraser will appear in Series 12 of Doctor Who!
With less than one month to go until the TARDIS lands back on our screens, television stars Anjli Mohindra and Laura Fraser are set to guest star in upcoming episodes of Doctor Who.
Previously starring as Rani Chandra in the Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures, Anjli is no stranger to the Whoniverse but as she takes on a new character, it’s safe to say she’ll be worlds away from her usual appearance…
Starring in a separate episode, Laura has previously starred in various dramas including the hit BBC show, The Missing and more recently Better Call Saul.
On appearing in Doctor Who, Anjli Mohindra says:
“As a huge fan of the last series, it’s a bit of a dream come true getting to work opposite Jodie, Mandip, Tosin and of course after all these years, to work with Bradley again! There’s something undeniably special about Jodie’s Doctor, and to be bringing some terror to the joint was rather fun indeed.”
Laura Fraser adds:
“I love this episode and couldn’t resist playing such an intense character. I watched Doctor Who every week as a child, so it was a massive thrill to be asked to take part in such an iconic show.”
Matt Strevens, Executive Producer, says:
“It was a real joy to welcome Anjli and Laura to the show. We’ve wanted to work with them since we started and have found the perfect characters for them to show off their talent and range – both formidable in very different ways.”
Add to that some familiar faces including the Judoon and the Cybermen, Series 12 is set to be an epic action-packed rollercoaster for everyone, just don’t stray too far from behind the sofa…
Doctor Who will be airing on BBC One at 6.55pm and BBC America at 8pm ET/PT on New Year’s Day, starring Jodie Whittaker, Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill and Bradley Walsh. Stay tuned for further details!
