"There aren't quite the words to describe how I'm feeling," Ncuti shared at the time of the announcement. "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. I will endeavour my utmost to do the same."
On the 18th of July 2023, the BBC released the first images of Ncuti as the doctor and safe to say he looks goooood.
The BBC also teased the first images of Millie Gibson who will take on the role of Ruby Sunday - The Doctor's human companion.
When Will The New Doctor Who Season Be Released?
We have some good news...and some bad news. First, let's start with the facts. Filming for season 14 has already finished. Russell T Davies, the series head writer and executive producer shared a behind-the-scenes picture of the crew celebrating the end of filming to his Instagram on the 15th of July.
Whilst the filming has finished - we're still quite a way off from actually watching the new season. BBC hasn't revealed any dates yet, but it's quite likely the series could only premiere in early 2024.
60th-anniversary episodes, featuring David Tennant and Catherine Tate, are expected to be released in November this year, alongside the new festive special and Ncuti's eight episodes as the new Doctor are expected to launch after this.
