In May it was revealed that Ncuti Gatwa, star of Sex Education, would be the incoming Doctor Who.

Ncuti currently plays the very gay Eric Effiong in the hit Netflix program.

Following the announcement, it was revealed that trans actress Yasmin Finney would also join the show.

For the moment details about the involvement of Harris, Gatwa and Finney are still under wraps.
