This was what he mentioned about it:

“There are no words to describe how I feel. A mixture of deeply honest, more than excited and, of course, a little scared. This role and spectacle mean a lot for many people around the world, including me, and each of my incredibly talented predecessors has managed that unique responsibility and privilege with the greatest care. I will do everything possible to do the same. Russell T Davies is almost as iconic as the doctor himself and being able to work with him is a dream come true. His writing is dynamic, exciting, incredibly intelligent and full of danger. The metaphorical recess of an actor. The whole team has been very cozy and has really given its heart to the show. And however much discouraging, I am aware that I am joining a family that really supports me. Unlike the doctor, he may only have a heart, but I am giving everything to this program. ”

It is clear that Doctor Who’s fans are facing a new era . Although this will be the first time that this role is in charge of a person of color in a main way, we must not forget that Jo Martin, a black actress, gave life to The Fugitive Doctor for three episodes in 2020.
