  • Varada Sethu (“Andor”) is set to take a trip through time and space as the Doctor’s new companion, alongside current companion Ruby Sunday, in season two of “Doctor Who.” Currently in production, the second season is slated to debut in 2025 on Disney+, where available, and on the BBC in the UK.
  • Photos from a table read featuring Sethu, Ncuti Gatwa (the Fifteenth Doctor), and Millie Gibson (Ruby Sunday) were released today.
  • Sethu is best known for her standout role as Cinta Kaz in the Disney+ Original series “Andor.” Her additional credits include “Jurassic World Dominion,” “Annika” and “Strike Back.”
  • Sethu says: “I feel like the luckiest person in the world. It is such an honour to be a part of the Whoniverse, and I’m so grateful to the whole Doctor Who family- because that is what they are- for welcoming me with open arms and making me feel so at home. I couldn’t ask for a better team than Ncuti and Millie to be on this adventure with, this is SO much fun!”
  • Russell T Davies (showrunner, executive producer and writer) said “I first worked with Varada on a BBC production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ and it’s a joy to welcome her on board the TARDIS. Right now in the studio, shooting for 2025, we’ve got Ncuti, Millie and Varada fighting side by side–we need all three, because the stakes are higher than ever!”
  • Season One Tune In: Season one of “Doctor Who” premieres Friday, May 10 at 7:00 p.m. EDT on Disney+ in the U.S. and around the world (excluding the U.K.) with “The Church on Ruby Road,” which premiered last December, as well as two all-new episodes. In the U.K., “Doctor Who” begins streaming May 11 at midnight on BBC iPlayer, before airing on BBC One later that day, giving audiences a simultaneous global launch. New episodes will then drop weekly on Fridays on Disney+, where available, and on Saturdays on the BBC and BBC iPlayer in the UK.
