Sex Education Star Ncuti Gatwa Lands At Dr. Who On Disney Plus In 2023!By Maureen Martin | November 7, 2022 | Entertainment
Sex Education‘s Ncuti Gatwa is joining the Disney family! The BBC and Disney Branded Television have come together to transform Doctor Who into a global franchise for the rest of the world. The new episodes will premiere on the BBC and Disney+ beginning in late 2023 for fans all over the world.
To bring you up to speed, Doctor Who began in 1963 and follows the adventures of a Time Lord known as “The Doctor,” an extraterrestrial with looks human in appearance. The Doc travels the universe in a time-traveling spaceship called the Tardis.
The next Doctor, played by Gatwa, will take control of the Tardis after Tennant, with his first episode airing over the festive period in 2023.
Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies says, “If you thought the appearance of David Tennant was a shock, we’ve got plenty more surprises on the way. The path to Ncuti’s 15th Doctor is laden with mystery, horror, robots, puppets, danger and fun. And how is it connected to the return of the wonderful Donna Noble? How, what and why? We’re giving you a year to speculate, and then all hell lets loose.”
Guess who else will be joining the cast? None other than Neil Patrick Harris! He will play a mysterious new character.
