New Doctor Who Ncuti Gatwa reveals ‘huge telling off’ by show bosses for foul-mouthed moment | The Sun

NEW Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa got a ticking off from show bosses — for swearing while in his Time Lord costume.

The actor, 31, made his debut as The Doctor at the weekend, appearing alongside fan favourite David Tennant in the latest 60th anniversary special on BBC One.

It is thought his profanity came during filming and show boss Russell T Davies let him know there is a time and a space for that sort of language.

Ncuti said: “The only time I’ve ever gotten in trouble for anything was when I swore while wearing a Doctor Who costume.

“I got called into Russell’s office. Woo! And he let me know that that’s not acceptable.

“He said, ‘Do what you want when you’re out of costume, but when you’re in costume, do not let us catch you swearing’.”

Ncuti, who was born in Rwanda and raised in Scotland, learned his lesson swiftly.

But he explained he had spent years working on comedy-drama Sex Education as saucy student Eric Effiong.

The Netflix show is known for its racy storylines and language, with cast and crew not batting an eyelid.

But the actor accepts things have changed now he has the keys to the Tardis — and one of the Beeb’s biggest hits.

He told the Radio Times: “For the last four years I’ve been co-leading an X-rated show, and so I’m on a constant journey of learning what it is to be a PG role model and the lead of a family show.”

Ncuti will next be seen as The Doctor in the Christmas Day special, when he will pair up with new companion Ruby Sunday — played by the former ­Corrie star Millie Gibson.
