Corries Millie Gibson unrecognisable on Doctor Who set as BBC shares new snaps

Doctor Who fans have been treated to a sneak peek at Ncuti Gatwa as The Doctor and what Millie Gibson looks like as his companion Ruby.

And former Coronation Street star Millie Gibson looked very different to her famous cobbles character of Kelly Neelan.

Sex Education star Ncuti, 29, was revealed as the 15th Doctor last May, replacing Jodie Whitaker, the last star to play the Time Lord on the beloved BBC sci-fi show.

Soap star Millie, 18, was then confirmed to play his companion Ruby Sunday in November after announcing she was leaving Corrie.

The new series of Doctor Who won't be on screens until November, leaving fans dying for their fix of time-travelling Tardis action.

It means they''ll be thrilled to see new photos taken from set which show The Doctor and Ruby transported to the 1960s and posing together in retro garments.

The first pictures of the pair came out in December, but the latest show Ncuti sporting an afro and a blue pinstripe suit and Millie in a belted dress with hooped earrings and knee-high boots.

The official Doctor Who Twitter account released the pictures on Thursday (April 20) alongside the caption: "What and when is going on here?

"A first look at the Doctor and Ruby, as they arrive in the swinging 60s! Filming continues on the new series of #DoctorWho."

Speaking about becoming the new Doctor, Ncuti said: "There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling. A mix of deeply honoured, beyond excited and of course a little bit scared.

"This role and show means so much to so many around the world, including myself, and each one of my incredibly talented predecessors has handled that unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care.

Millie hailed Ncuti the "perfect" Time Lord and vowed to do the best job she could as his companion.

She told the Doctor Who magazine: "But what’s so great about Ncuti is, a stranger could bounce off him without even knowing him. He’s just so beautifully talented, in that aspect. He’s the perfect Doctor. And I’ll try to be the perfect companion."
