Doctor Who has released some new images teasing Jinx Monsoon’s musical villain, Maestro.

The two-time Drag Race winner was previously confirmed to be playing the Doctor's "most powerful enemy yet", who is set to show up in an episode titled 'The Devil's Chord' while the Fifteenth Time Lord (Ncuti Gatwa) and his companion Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) uncover a mystery at Abbey Road Studios.

Some new stills from the sci-fi franchise’s upcoming season have now been released, showing Monsoon’s character sporting an array of elaborate, music-inspired outfits and bright orange wigs while wreaking some villainy at the Studios.

After officially confirming Monsoons’s character last month, showrunner Russell T Davies told Empire that the star gives "a performance and a half!"

Gatwa was also full of praise for Jinkx's performance, saying: "She absolutely blew us away. It was so cool to see her transfer her skill set to this show. She fits Doctor Who so well."

Meanwhile, following the announcement of her casting last year, Monsoon called her role "a dream come true".

"It's insane. It's like all of my actor fantasies have been rolled into one character, and now I get to do it all on a show that I love, written by a prolific writer, a voice of our generation who has written so many astounding things," she said.

Gatwa’s debut season as the Fifteenth Doctor will premiere next Saturday (May 11), with fans able to watch the first two episodes early on BBC iPlayer from midnight.

The episodes will also air on BBC One later in the day. Season premiere 'Space Babies' will debut at 6.20pm, followed by second episode 'The Devil's Chord' at 7.05pm.

Doctor Who will return for its 14th series on May 11 at midnight, airing on BBC One in the UK and Disney+ elsewhere. Classic episodes of Doctor Who are available on BBC iPlayer in the UK.
