Patsy Kensit will join the cast of Big Finish’s main Doctor Who range in 2018 as she will star in Kingdom of Lies with Fifth Doctor Peter Davison.
Big Finish have announced with delight that Patsy Kensit will star in the opening story of the 2018 Doctor Who main range, Kingdom of Lies. Patsy will star alongside Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor and will cross swords (or lasers) with his companions Tegan, Nyssa and Adric.
While the identity of Patsy’s character is being kept under wraps, director Barnaby Edwards gives us a hint: “I can tell you three things: she’s sassy, she’s deadly and she’s partly cybernetic.” Ooh! Big Finish, with this mysterious, partly-cybernetic Patsy Kensit, you are really spoiling us!

Joining Peter Davison, Janet Fielding, Sarah Sutton, Matthew Waterhouse and Patsy Kensit in Kingdom of Lies are Jonathan Firth (Middlemarch, Wuthering Heights), Charlotte Lucas (Broadchurch, Bad Girls), Harriet Thorpe (Absolutely Fabulous, The Brittas Empire),Tim Bentinck (David Archer in The Archers, The Monk in the 2017 TV series of Doctor Who) and Richenda Carey (The Darling Buds of May, Monarch of the Glen).
Script editor Guy Adams tells us more about what to expect from this unusual Doctor Who tale: “In Kingdom of Lies, written by Robert Khan and Tom Salinksy, the TARDIS team are split into pairs and mistaken for deadly assassins embroiled in a particularly spiteful divorce. But will The Scorpion and his vicious colleague-in-slaughter Nyssa the Destroyer win the day? Or will Adric and Tegan from the deadly Order of Alzarius, strike first?
“Kingdom of Lies is, at heart, a bubbly farce. Albeit one with Deadly Drones of Death and psychotic killers for hire. Listeners who heard Robert and Tom’s Early Adventure The Ravelli Conspiracy will know they have previous for wringing joy from courtly intrigue.”
