But the long-running BBC series subverted everyone's expectations by announcing that young actor Ncuti Gatwa, whose role in Sex Education is his best known

Still, with Gatwa not being that well known yet, it's left some scratching their heads about how exactly one says his name.

Gatwa is sure to bring an upbeat energy more similar to Tennant's run as the Doctor than Matt Smith's arrogant Doctor, Peter Capalti's angry energy, or Whittaker's more reflective turn.

With the announcement of Gatwa's casting, Davies revealed that he and the rest of the Doctor Who production team were "dazzled" by Ncuti Gatwa's audition.

he said. "Ncuti dazzled us, seized hold of the Doctor and owned those TARDIS keys in seconds." With Gatwa bringing his youthful energy to Doctor Who, the future looks bright.
