The first images of the upcoming Doctor Who season starring Scottish lead Ncuti Gatwa have been released.

The Doctor has had a vintage makeover for the new series with the first images showing Gatwa and co-star Millie Gibson in 1960s attire.

Gatwa becomes the 14th Time Lord in the popular BBC science fiction show with The Sex Education star revealing in May that he was taking the role.  The first publicity shots were released in December but this is the first time Gatwa and Gibson have appeared in character.

Coronation Street actress Gibson takes on the role of the Time Lord's new companion in the science fiction series as the duo takes the Tardis time machine back to the swinging 1960s.

Showrunner Russell T Davies, who was behind the revival of the hit series in 2005, is returning for the upcoming episodes.

Gatwa, born in Rwanda, is the first BAME Doctor to be cast as the series lead after Jo Martin played the first BAME incarnation of the Time Lord in a January 2020 episode, Future of the Judoon, as Ruth Clayton.

The show returns in November 2023 with commemorative episodes to celebrate the show's 60th birthday and David Tennant returning as the Doctor before Gatwa takes over for the festive period.
