Recently, it was announced that Ncuti Gatwa would replace Jodie Whittaker as the Time Lord in "Doctor Who." Get inside the actor's love life and find out who he is dating.


Rwandan-born actor Ncuti Gatwa made history recently after BBC announced he would become the 14th Time Lord on the popular sci-fi show "Doctor Who." Gatwa expressed his delight after his announcement as the next Time Lord, saying it felt amazing and was a true honor.

It is understandable why Gatwa feels that way, given that he will become the first Black actor to play the Time Lord full time. However, while his career continues to rise, little is known about his love life. Find out who Gatwa is dating below.

Gatwa was born in Nyarugenge, Kigali, Rwanda, on October 15, 1992, but grew up primarily in Edinburgh and Dunfermline, Scotland.


Before capturing his latest role as the Time Lord, the 29-year-old had been making a name for himself. In 2014, he starred in the BBC sitcom "Bob Servant" and the television adaptation of the novel "Stonemouth."


In 2019, he starred in the film"Horrible Histories: The Movie - Rotten Romans." In 2021, the fast-rising actor appeared in the movie "The Last Letter From Your Lover."

However, his biggest role is playing Eric Effiong in Netflix's hugely popular comedy series "Sex Education." He has earned three BAFTA TV Award nominations for his performance in the series and won a BAFTA Scotland Award for it.



Although Gatwa is famous thanks to his television and movie roles, he maintains a quiet profile as not so much is known about his private life.

Eric, the character Gatwa plays in "Sex Education," is gay, and there have been many suggestions that the actor could be gay. However, he has refused to talk about it in several granted interviews, including with The Guardian and Independent.

Recently, Elle reported that Gatwa used to date actress Jessica Hardwick, but their relationship was never confirmed. As of now, there is no news about the actor's relationship status, a situation that may not change soon, given that he is set to become an even busier man.



Whittaker's last episode and appearance as the Time Lord is set to air in the autumn. The episode will mark BBC's Centenary and could reveal Gatwa as the 14th Doctor.

Although there is no release date for the episode, it is likely to air around October 18, 2022, which is BBC's Centenary.


Meanwhile, the show's fans wonder when the new season featuring Gatwa will likely air. With the current season's last episode featuring Whittaker set for the autumn, it is more feasible for Gatwa's reign as the Time Lord to begin in 2023.

It remains to be seen when in 2023, the show will return for a new season, but there is so much for fans to be excited about moving forward.
