‘Doctor Who’ adds Jonathan Groff to cast in ‘mysterious’ role

Mindhunter star Jonathan Groff has joined the cast of BBC’s celebrated science-fiction show Doctor Who in a key role.

BBC’s Doctor Who began in 1963 and centers on the thrilling adventures of an extraterrestrial Time Lord who calls himself The Doctor. The human-like Doctor explores the universe in a time traveling spaceship called the Tardis.

While it’s not confirmed which role Jonathan will be playing in the iconic series, “he’s on his way to jump aboard the Tardis in a mysterious and exciting guest role,” says a BBC statement on the matter.

Jonathan Groff rose to fame with his role in the musical comedy drama Glee. His portrayal of King George III in Hamilton won him a nomination for a Tony Award.

Groff said: “I am so thrilled to jump into the extraordinary mind of Russell T Davies and watch the incredible Ncuti Gatwa soar in this iconic role.”

Last year, the 13th doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, regenerated, revealing David Tennant (the 10th Doctor) as the 14th Doctor.

The classic series will return in November for three special episodes to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the show.

After Tennant, the Doctor will be played by Sex Education alum Ncuti Gatwa, who will step onto the Tardis as the 15th doctor.
