Neil Patrick Harris has described meeting Ncuti Gatwa during shooting of the latest season of Doctor Who. “I got to meet and interact with him a bit and he’s glorious,” he said in an interview with Variety. “He’ll be the first gay Doctor, which is going to be super cool, a sexier Doctor.” If what Patrick Harris says is true, this is the first time in the show’s history that the sexual orientation of The Doctor has been mentioned explicitly.

Some previous male incarnations were shown kissing female characters and the 11th Doctor married female character River Song in The Wedding of River Song.

This isn’t the first time the Doctor has been rumoured to be LGBTQ+. A previous storyline included a mutual attraction between the 13th Doctor, portrayed by Jodie Whittaker, and her companion, Yaz Khan (Mandip Gill).
