New Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa has shared his response to former Time Lord Sylvester McCoy who sent his wishes to the incoming actor.
- Welcome, Ncuti Gatwa. Welcome to our unique club, the Doctor Who club. You are very welcome. And we'll be delight to watch you take on the Dalkes, the Cybermen, the Weeping Angels, and the critics. [LAUGHS]
We all had to do that when we took over. Anyway, I wish you well. I wish you everything you wish for yourself and the TARDIS. I hope you have great adventures. I know you will, I had.
All the best, mate. All the best. I look forward to meeting you someday. Bye, another Scot. Wee!
- Sylvester McCoy, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your beautiful message. It means the absolute world, especially coming from a fellow Scot. [LAUGHS] Especially coming from a fellow Scot.
I am so looking forward to facing all of those foals, especially in the last one that you mentioned. And the support from you and all of the other doctors has just filled me with the strength that I will be able to do that.
Thank you so much for welcoming me into the family. It means the world. Sylvester, you're a gentleman. All the best.
