Sex Education‘s Ncuti Gatwa is to take command of the TARDIS, having been named the new Doctor in the BBC’s Doctor Who. He replaces the outgoing Timelord Jodie Whittaker, who unveiled she was leaving last year. Gatwa becomes the first Black actor to play the iconic figure.
“There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling. A mix of deeply honored, beyond excited and of course a little bit scared,” said Gatwa.
Oh my good gosh, I’m the most excited I could possibly be for this news! Ncuti Gatwa has always been one of the standout actors on Sex Education, a show that I adore. Now I get to see more of them in another incredible show? Happy early birthday to me!
I’m very happy for them and I can’t wait to see their take on this monumental character. Gatwa says,
“Unlike the Doctor, I may only have one heart, but I am giving it all to this show.”
