• Russell T. Davies is returning to Doctor Who to save the series once again, just like he did in 2005 with the introduction of the Ninth Doctor played by Christopher Eccleston.
  • Davies wanted to remove the pompousness and pretentiousness associated with the Time Lord character, and Eccleston's portrayal successfully broke away from that stereotype, surprising audiences.
  • Ncuti Gatwa is the new Fifteenth Doctor, following David Tennant's return as the Fourteenth Doctor in three 60th anniversary specials. Gatwa's arrival signifies a shake-up of the franchise and hints at exciting changes to come.
