Doctor Who has added two more stars to season 14.

Work is currently underway on the first full series for Ncuti Gatwa's Fifteenth Doctor, with a number of new cast members already announced.

It's now been confirmed (via Doctor Who Magazine) that The Split's Millie Kent and Taboo's Sophie Ablett will be coming on board – though who they're playing remains under wraps for now.

As well as the two new stars, the next season will welcome Coronation Street star Millie Gibson as companion Ruby Sunday, while Drag Race legend Jinkx Monsoon will portray a villain.

Speaking about her role recently, the latter told Pride: "I’m terribly excited. It’s not easy to encapsulate how excited I am with words. I was saying to the director yesterday, the role that I’m playing, it’s like everything I ever dreamed about doing as an actor in one character.

“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.”

Russell T Davies is set to return as showrunner, also overseeing three special episodes later this year, which will see David Tennant back as the Doctor.

The specials and season 14 will also see a comeback for composer Murray Gold, who previously served as musical director and composer for the show between 2005 and 2017.

"I’m so happy to be invited back for another joyful ride in the TARDIS. I didn’t think twice. Working with Russell and his team is just a pleasure," Gold said.

Doctor Who returns later in 2023 on BBC One in the UK and Disney+ elsewhere. Meanwhile, in the US, the show airs on BBC America, with series 1-12 available on HBO Max. Classic Doctor Who streams on Britbox in the UK.
