Nina Wadia Cast In Doctor Who Series Five

Various British tabloids and websites are today reporting that Indian actress, Nina Wadia, has been cast in the fifth series of Doctor Who. The actress, well known for her role in long running BBC soap opera Eastenders, will be appearing as a villain in one of the episodes starring Matt Smith as The Eleventh Doctor and Karen Gillan as his companion, Amy Pond. Speaking about her casting to The Sun, Nina Wadia said: "It was brilliant to be let out for a couple of days to do something else and it was great working with Matt Smith. I play a bit of a baddie. And yes, like my EastEnders character Zainab, she's not a very pleasant woman - but at least I'm human and not some kind of strange alien life-form." More details regarding Nina Wadia's and other actors' and actresses' roles in the series will be posted here.
