‘Drag Race’ Star Jinkx Monsoon Joins ‘Doctor Who’ as the Doctor’s Most Powerful Enemy Yet
Doctor Who has just revealed its latest casting coup – none other than international drag superstar Jinkx Monsoon, who will be taking on the role of the Doctor’s most powerful enemy yet. With two wins on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and a history-making run on Broadway, Monsoon is sure to bring her A-game to the iconic British sci-fi series.
First Look at Jinkx Monsoon’s Character in Doctor Who
The announcement of Monsoon’s casting has set Doctor Who fans abuzz with excitement. While details about her character remain tightly under wraps, fans are eagerly speculating about what kind of villain the drag queen will play.
Monsoon’s presence on the show marks a historic moment for both Doctor Who and the LGBTQIA+ community. As the first drag queen to play the role of Mama Morton in Chicago, Monsoon broke barriers and set a new standard for inclusivity in the entertainment industry.
With Monsoon’s impressive track record of performance and a devoted fanbase, there’s no doubt that she’ll bring her unique flair and charisma to the role of the Doctor’s latest enemy. Fans will have to wait until the 60th-anniversary special in November 2023 to see her in action, but with the promise of three special episodes and the return of David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor, there’s plenty for Whovians to look forward to.

How the Role May Help Combat Anti-Drag Laws
Monsoon is set to play the role of the Doctor’s most powerful enemy yet in the upcoming special episodes of Doctor Who. Monsoon’s casting comes at a time when lawmakers in at least 16 states have proposed legislation that would restrict drag performances, a move that Monsoon has strongly condemned.
She has been vocal in her denouncement of the Republican-led legislative push to restrict drag performances, which she says unfairly targets the art form because of its deep ties to the LGBTQIA+ community. Monsoon’s role on Doctor Who may serve as a way to combat the anti-drag laws, as the show has a history of being inclusive and representing diverse communities.
Monsoon’s casting in Doctor Who is not only a significant achievement for the performer, but it also has the potential to make a powerful statement against the anti-drag laws. The show’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity makes it the perfect platform for Monsoon to showcase the value and importance of drag culture.
