Further casting news for the upcoming series has been announced at this years Comic-Con -
Jacob Anderson - best known for portraying Grey Worm in Game of Thrones will join Jodie Whittaker, Mandip Gill and John Bishop as recurring character Vinder in Series 13!
Speaking about joining Doctor Who, Anderson said -
“The Doctor has been a part of my life forever, from watching and rewatching the serials on VHS as a kid and being terrified, to unexpectedly finding my eyes watering when the Tenth Doctor said 'I don’t want to go', I always wanted to live in the Whoniverse - Not only has a lifelong dream of mine now been fulfilled, but to be playing a character as fun, adventurous and dynamic as Vinder is the cherry on top. This is very cool.”
