On Wednesday we saw the first look at the new character, touted to be the Doctor's "most powerful enemy yet," with many guessing that it could be a musical villain thanks to her piano-themed robe.
For the uninitiated, Jinkx has previously showcased her talent as a theatrical vocalist on several occasions, notably during both her runs on Drag Race.
Jinkx won the show's fifth season back in 2013 on the back of an underdog narrative, top-notch comedic performances, and her catchphrase "water off a duck's back."
After performing around the world in sketch comedy shows and her very own tour (alongside fellow Drag Race alum BenDeLaCreme), she returned last year for a shot at another Drag Race crown.
Cast on the first-ever all winners season of the All Stars edition, expectations were high for the beloved queen, who proceeded to dominate the season's comedy challenges, thanks to her signature quick wit, plus a franchise-best impersonation of Judy Garland.
Jinkx then claimed the title of "Queen of All Queens," and followed that up with what might be her greatest achievement yet – a starring run on Broadway.
In November, the Portland-based performer was announced to have taken on the role of Mama Morton in Chicago for eight weeks, kicking off a record-breaking run that featured sell-out shows and several standing only audiences.
In fact, soon after the run ended, Jinkx put on a showcase of her phenomenal time on Broadway at last week's Drag Race season 15 finale with a roof-raising rendition of "When You're Good to Mama."
Speaking with Pride, Jinkx (real name Jerick Hoffer) explained how it was her friendship with Doctor Who head writer and executive producer Russell T. Davies that led her to the role.
"I was dating my now-husband, Michael Abbott, who's a good friend of Russell's," she explains. "So our holiday show was coming through Manchester at a time that Russell was in Manchester, and my husband reached out and he came and saw the show.
"And I'll tell you candidly, after I was offered the role and I accepted it, Russell told me that he saw my show Together Again, Again with my music partner, Major Scales, which is a show where I play myself in my 80s, a kind of dystopian look at my future.
"Russell said that he walked home from the show that night and decided, 'Jinkx is the person I want to have play this role.'" Here's a look at the last aired season of the BBC show, for a refresher.
The 14th Doctor Who season is set to premiere in early 2024, with Sex Education's Ncuti Gatwa assuming the role of the Fifteenth Doctor and Millie Gibson as the Doctor's newest companion, Ruby Sunday.
