This week, the BBC first announced that Laura Fraser and Anjli Mohindra are both going to be guest-starring in at least one upcoming episode of the series. The news of Fraser’s casting is especially exciting, given her involvement in both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul as Lydia, a woman who eventually becomes a major part in Walter White’s operation.

Now, let’s share some statements from all parties involved.

Laura Fraser – “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.”

Anjli Mohindra – “As a huge fan of the last series, it’s a bit of a dream come true getting to work opposite Jodie [Whittaker], Mandip [Gill], Tosin [Cole], and of course after all these years, to work with Bradley [Walsh] again! There’s something undeniably special about Jodie’s Doctor, and to be bringing some terror to the joint was rather fun indeed.”

Matt Stevens, executive producer – “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.”

Why the secrecy surrounding some of the roles here? It’s just a means for the BBC to add to the show’s overall sense of imagination. They love to operate under a no-spoilers policy, largely due to the fact that this is the only way that viewers can come into this show without any idea as to what is coming up next.
