An international news organization announced on Sunday that Sex Education actor Ncuti Gatwa has been cast as the 14th Time Lord on the hit show Doctor Who.

Gatwa will take over as the Doctor from Jodie Whittaker, who announced her departure from the role in July.

Gatwa, a 29-year-old Scottish actor born in Rwanda, rose to prominence in Netflix’s mega-hit Sex Education as Eric Effiong, alongside Asa Butterfield and Gillian Anderson.

The BBC also announced that the next series of Doctor Who will be directed by Russel T Davies, who previously directed the show from 2005 to 2009.

Talking about his casting, Gatwa said: “There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling. A mix of deeply honored, beyond excited and of course a little bit scared.”

“This role and show mean so much to so many around the world, including myself, and each one of my incredibly talented predecessors has handled that unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care,” he added.
