Former Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa has won over Doctor Who fans as the latest incarnation of the iconic Time Lord, following his debut on Christmas Day last year.

His first appearances in the new series have been applauded by critics and fans, but it is his performance at the end of the latest episode, Dot & Bubble, that has been especially singled out for praise.

The fifth episode of the series features the Doctor desperately trying to save the residents of Finetime, a planet where all the young, rich and privileged residents communicate via screens that block their view of the real world – and the slug-like aliens that are picking them off one by one.

Throughout the episode, the Doctor and his companion Ruby (Millie Gibson) try communicating with one of them named Lindy (Callie Cooke) via her screen to help rescue her, but at the end of the episode when he meets her in the flesh with the other survivors, they all reject his offer of an escape via the TARDIS because he is ‘different’ – a Black man who is not like them.
