Black Doctor Who

The 14th Doctor is confirmed to be black and is generally assumed to be gay.

Ncuti Gatwa will take over from Jodie Whittaker as the Time Lord in Doctor Who, the BBC has announced. The 29-year-old will become the 14th Doctor on the popular BBC show, after Whittaker announced last July she will be leaving the role.

Queer As Folk and It’s A Sin writer Russell T Davies is returning as the programme’s showrunner after departing the show in 2009.

The only real surprise is that the BBC didn’t go with a blind black lesbian in a wheelchair as the Doctor, just to make absolutely sure that no one will watch it. But a gay black “Rwandan-Scottish” lead should suffice to kill it off.
