Doctor Who First Look: Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson

The BBC offers a first look at Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson in the upcoming Doctor Who Series 14.

“It’s official, the TARDIS has landed in the 60’s!” sates the info. “A first look at the Doctor and Ruby as they arrive in the swinging 60’s, as filming continues for the new series.”

The BBC also revealed a first look at Jinkx Monsoon who is described as playing the character that is the Doctor’s most powerful enemy yet.

Ncuti Gatwa is the 14th Doctor

“There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling,” said Gatwa when he was announced to be the next Timelord last year in May. “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.”

Gatwa added, “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.”

Returning showrunner Russell T Davies also said with the announcement: “The future is here and it’s Ncuti! Sometimes talent walks through the door and it’s so bright and bold and brilliant, I just stand back in awe and thank my lucky stars. Ncuti dazzled us, seized hold of the Doctor and owned those Tardis keys in seconds. It’s an honour to work with him, and a hoot, I can’t wait to get started.”

Millie Gibson is the new companion

Millie Gibson said when she was announced: “Whilst still being in total disbelief, I am beyond honoured to be cast as the Doctor’s companion. It is a gift of a role, and a dream come true, and I will do everything to try and fill the boots the fellow companions have travelled in before me. And what better way to do that than being by the fabulous Ncuti Gatwa’s side, I just can’t wait to get started.”

Doctor Who returns in November 2023 with three special episodes with David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor to coincide with the 60th anniversary. Ncuti Gatwa’s first episode as the Fifteenth Doctor will then air over the festive period.

Doctor Who will premiere exclusively on the BBC for the UK and Ireland. Disney+ will be the exclusive home for new seasons of Doctor Who outside of the UK and Ireland.
