ABOUT FACE

In Hell Bent T’Nia Miller revealed a feminine side to the General, the commander of all the armed forces on Gallifrey.

Hell Bent, the 2015 series finale, was an episode full of surprises, not least of which was the first on-screen regeneration of a male to a female Time Lord. Gallifrey’s General was played by Ken Bones until the character was shot by the Doctor (Peter Capaldi). The soldier rapidly recovered in the shape of T’Nia Miller.

The Jamaican-descended actress chose her career at an early age: “I remember on my third birthday, someone asking me, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ and I said, ‘An actor’. I think that’s quite incredible, for a three-year-old to recognise what an actor is. That’s my earliest memory, and through school I was always being creative in some sort of way; I played a female Fagin in Oliver Twist at eight years old in my school play! I went off to drama school and since then the parts I’ve played have been very varied. I’m quite fortunate in that regard.”

About Doctor Who Magazine

The Doctor’s own people, and his home planet, were introduced in 1969 as a major chapter in the series’ history came to an end. Five decades later, the Time Lords and their devastating war with the Daleks are still essential parts of Doctor Who’s mythology. This special publication analyses every story set on Gallifrey, reveals previously unseen images from the making of the episodes and interviews key players in the Time Lords’ fascinating story.
