Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa details stunt that got cut out ahead of debut

Inside Doctor Who Ncuti Gatwa’s new sonic screwdriver

The BBC programme will air on Christmas day and Ncuti, 31, has said he will be watching from his home alongside his family. Talking on the Graham Norton show, he admitted that some of his more “energetic” scenes didn’t make it.

When asked about the action-packed scenes, he admitted that there were some stunts that “got cut”. He told Graham: “I like physical theatre and got to do a lot.

“I am a very energetic doctor. I was showing off on the first day, with lots of acrobatics but they all got cut out!”

Discussing being the new Doctor, the star also revealed that he was happy that David was not killed off.

“This is the first time The Doctor is bi-generation and has split in two,” he said.

“It was useful that David didn’t die and that he was around because I could copy him.”

Doctor Who has a very loyal fanbase that goes by the name “Whovians”.

Talking about the Whovians, he said, “They’ve found me. They are a very dedicated and passionate fan base!”.

He said that he will be watching his first show on Christmas day with his father, but admitted that he is incredibly nervous and said his Dad will be his biggest critic.

“I will but it is nerve-wracking and I know my dad will give me notes!” Ncuti confessed.

Previously, he did a lot of musical theatre work before moving into TV and, in an interview with The Rolling Stone, expressed his desire to return to the stage.

However, he reassured fans it would not be until he had finished at least two series of Doctor Who.
