Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
Just a quickie for today! The Fourteenth Doctor of ‘Doctor Who’ has been announced! And it happens to be Ncuti Gatwa! 🙂 How fitting that the announcement of the Fourteenth Doctor was on my birthday last Sunday. 😀 I’m looking forward to what Ncuti Gatwa as the new Doctor will be like on TV.
Ncuti Gatwa is the new Doctor for the upcoming neo-Russell T. Davies era of ‘Doctor Who’, which I believe will start off the 60th anniversary celebrations of the show. I know nothing about Ncuti Gatwa as an actor. I’ve never seen ‘Sex Education’, though I’ve heard he’s won the Best Actor Award.
It’s interesting that RTD has decided to start off his new era of the show with a man instead of a woman, which is what we have been getting used to in the Jodie Whittaker/Chris Chibnall era. It’s also intriguing that RTD has a cast a black actor to play the role of the Doctor instead of a white actor.
At this point, I can’t say much about what Ncuti Gatwa will be like as the new Doctor and what stories we’re to expect under his era with RTD. I hope it will be an enjoyable era and it’s always a pleasure to see what new things an actor/actress will bring to the role of the Doctor in the TV series.
For now, I’m glad the wheels have been set in motion, as we’re likely to expect Ncuti Gatwa to make his debut as the Fourteenth Doctor at the end of Jodie Whittaker’s swansong in the BBC Centenary Special later this year in the autumn. I hope to share my thoughts on this era once it finally arrives. 🙂
It seems the rumours about David Tennant and Lydia West becoming the Fourteenth Doctor were untrue after all. I’m also surprised that the announcement came unexpectedly and without warning, with no build-up compared to the previous announcements for Peter Capaldi and Jodie Whittaker. 🙂
Anyway, welcome to the TARDIS, Ncuti Gatwa! 🙂
Thanks for reading, everyone!
Bye for now!
