“Sex Education” Star Ncuti Gatwa Named New Doctor Who!

We are pretty delighted to share the news that Ncuti Gatwa, star of Netflix’s “Sex Education,” will be the next Doctor for the BBC.

Gatwa as revealed as 14th The Doctor after Jodie Whittaker‘s 13th regenerated. The announcement was confirmed this morning across all the official “Doctor Who” social media channels.

 “I feel really happy that I can now talk about it because I got cast in February and I have been keeping it a secret since then,” the Rwandan actor said on the BAFTA TV Awards red carpet. “So it is nice to finally breathe. But also really nervous. It is an incredibly iconic role and an incredibly iconic show. I just hope I do it justice. I am following in some very, very big footsteps so I am just hoping that I fill them up.”

Gatwa is nominated for Best Male Performance in a Comedy Programme for his role of Eric on Netflix’s “Sex Education.”

We really can’t wait to see what he brings to the iconic “Doctor Who” series!
