BBC has announced a brand new Doctor Who podcast, and it’s set to be extremely queer. Over the years, viewers of the beloved series have asked creators for more LGBTQ+ representation.

Fortunately for long-time queer fans, trans author Juno Dawson and trans activist Charlie Craggs are set to deliver “very gay and very trans” content in the new 10-episode podcast, Doctor Who: Redacted.

Craggs, Lois Chimimba and Holly Quin-Ankrah have been tapped to play Cleo Proctor, Abby McPhail, and Shawna Thompson – three university drop-outs that run The Blue Box Files podcast.

In an interview with BBC, Craggs described her lead role as a “huge step” for the trans community. “There are no words to express how huge it is, and how grateful I am, being a trans actress playing the lead role in something so special, but more so how significant the fact that my character is trans, and the lead role, too,” she said.
