In a statement, Gatwa told the BBC he was deeply honoured, beyond excited and of course a bit scared.

This role and this show means so much to so many people around the world, myself included, and each of my incredibly talented predecessors handled this unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care, said Gatwa. I will do my best to do the same.

Fans began guessing on Sunday that the Doctor Who news was imminent after a cryptic equation of two hearts, a plus sign and a blue square appeared on the Instagram pages of Gatwa and showrunner Russell T. Davies, who succeeds Chris Chibnall for the next season.

Davies commented on The Future is Here under Gatwas’ post.

The Its a Sin and Queer as Folk writer told the BBC that Gatwa dazzled the creative team during her audition.

Sometimes talent comes through the door and it’s so bright and bold and bright, I just stand back and thank my lucky stars,” Davies said.

Production on the new season of Doctor Who will begin later this year.
