Doctor Who Series 6 - Surrane Jones Confirmed to Play Idris

The official Doctor Who website has revealed that the former Coronation Street star Surrane Jones will appear as a young woman called Idris in Series 6, in the episode which is written by Neil Gaiman.

Jones previously appeared in ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures’ episode ‘Mona Lisa's Revenge’, where she played an evil incarnation of the Mona Lisa. The filming for this episode of Doctor Who officially begins today.

Neil Gaiman commented: “Suranne is marvellous. She's beautiful, funny and strange. It’s the kind of role that people will remember forever, so we needed someone who was able to pull that off, and to keep up with Matt Smith. And bite him. Suranne does all three.”

Suranne revealed: “As an actor, it’s hugely exciting to be cast in Doctor Who. I'm a massive fan of the show and I was blown away when I read Neil's script and uncovered what's in store for my character. However, I'm sworn to secrecy so viewers will just have to wait until next year to find out any other juicy details!”
