Gallery: Doctor Who Double-Episode Premiere Is This Week

Take a look at the first photos from Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson’s first season in the TARDIS, streaming this Friday on Disney+.

We’re just days away from a brand new season of Doctor Who, and we have a load of photos showcasing Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson’s first adventures in the TARDIS!

Gatwa stars as the Fifteenth Doctor, taking over for David Tennant’s return to the role in a trilogy of 2023 specials. Gibson co-stars as the Doctor’s brand new companion Ruby Sunday. She was introduced in the Christmas special “The Church on Ruby Road.”

While it’s the fourteenth season for the modern incarnation of the venerable science fiction series (the original premiered all the way back in 1963), BBC and Disney+ are promoting the episodes as a new “Season 1.” That’s meant to give newcomers a less intimidating jumping-on point, and also signaling the new cast, new writers and showrunner (Russell T Davies, who helped bring the show back in 2005, returns), and new approach to storytelling.

We have three galleries for you — the cast, plus a first look at the two episodes dropping this Friday (Saturday in the U.K.):



In the premiere episode the Doctor takes Ruby to a “Baby Farm” in the future … a facility that’s actually being run by babies, but now threatened by a bogeyman.


In the second episode of the new season the duo meet the Beatles, only to discover that an all-powerful being called the “Maestro” (guest star Jinkx Monsoon) is changing history.

Doctor Who will stream weekly on Disney+ in the United States, and on BBC iPlayer in the U.K. (where it will also air on linear television Saturday evenings on BBC One). The new season will consist of eight episodes, with a second season now filming.
