The new Doctor Who has been unveiled, and it’s “Sex Education” star Ncuti Gatwa.
Gatwa takes over from Jodie Whittaker, who has played the iconic role since 2017. The actor’s departure was revealed in July 2021 and there’s been widespread speculation around who would be replacing her ever since, with rumored names including “It’s a Sin” stars Olly Alexander and Lydia West, and even Michaela Coel.
The BBC confirmed Gatwa’s casting on Sunday afternoon, local time, just hours before the taping of the BAFTA TV Awards, suggesting there could be some reference to “Doctor Who” during the ceremony.
