Nina Wadia uest stars in Doctor Who in 2010The full details of Wadia’s character are unknown at this point, but with a career that includes battle-axe Zainab Masood in EastEnders she’s not likely to be friendly..

Although the actress onlyt met new Doctor Who star Matt Smith at the read-through, she said:

“I think he will make a great Doctor Who – he has a real charm about him, a kind of David Tennant charm.”

Wadia believes Smith has already stamped his own authority on the part.

“He will make the part his own. He’s a talent in his own right. I’m really looking forward to seeing this series. I think it will be the best yet, definitely.”

Nina Wadia – who made her name as one quarter of the Goodness Gracious Me comedy team in the 1990s – is believed to be appearing early in season 31 with most of her scenes with actor Arthur Darvill as Rory. Wadia described Arthur as “fabulous, with great comic timing”.
