The longest-running Sci-Fi series, Doctor Who, is reincarnated with a new face. The Christmas special, “The Church on Ruby Road“, introduced us to a vibrant Doctor in Ncuti Gatwa and a charming new companion, Ruby Sunday, portrayed by Millie Gibson.

After a span of declining seasons, the series needed a life-saving turn of events, brought by the reunion of Davies and David Tennant. They delivered a spectacular arc of three 60th anniversary specials, culminating with the simultaneous existence of Tennant’s Doctor and Gatwa’s – a first in the series. As Tennant’s Fourteenth Doctor retreats into the shadows, Gatwa’s journey on the TARDIS is just revving up.
