role of the Doctor.
May 08 2022
Gatwa will play this role in 2023, replacing Jodie Whittaker as the current Doctor.
This role and show means so much to so many around the world and for me also.
Each one of my incredibly talented predecessors has handled this role responsibly.
I will try to endeavour my upmost to do the same.
The Scottish actor Gatwa previously played Eric Effiong in Netflix’s comedy series Sex Education.
Gatwa will also star alongside Margot Robbie in the upcoming Barbie movie.
Whittaker made history as the first woman to appear in this role in 2017.
