The next doctor has been found as Sex Education’s Ncuti Gatwa will take on the daunting task. He will follow after Jodie Whitaker to take on the role as the famous time traveler. He shared his excitement on taking on the role:
There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling. A mix of deeply honoured, beyond excited and of course a little bit scared. This role and show means so much to so many around the world, including myself, and each one of my incredibly talented predecessors has handled that unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care. I will endeavour my upmost to do the same. Russell T Davies is almost as iconic as the Doctor himself and being able to work with him is a dream come true. His writing is dynamic, exciting, incredibly intelligent and fizzing with danger. An actor’s metaphorical playground. The entire team have been so welcoming and truly give their hearts to the show. And so as much as it’s daunting, I’m aware I’m joining a really supportive family. Unlike the Doctor, I may only have one heart but I am giving it all to this show.Ncuti Gatwa
It’s certainly going to be an exciting new era for Doctor Who and we’ll see what the return of Russel T. Davis will also bring to reinvigorate the franchise. Gatwa is the first POC actor to take on the role and is coming off of his work on Sex Education. Here’s hoping we get a tease of his Doctor outfit in the near future.
