Doctor Who FIRST LOOK: Millie Gibson transforms into Ruby Sunday

Filming for the long-awaited 14th series of Doctor Who resumed in Bristol on Friday, with Millie Gibson seen making her way onto the set.

The former Coronation Street star, 18, battled the freezing January weather by wrapping up in a heavy padded coat as she continued to work on the BBC show.

Millie will appear alongside the new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa in the new series when it hits screens in Christmas 2023, after David Tennant reprises his role as the Time Lord for a trio of episodes to celebrate Who’s 60th Anniversary in November.

Covering up her character’s costume, Ruby donned an oversized black padded coat with a pale blue fleece lining.

Flashing a glimpse of Ruby’s edgy sense of style, she sported chunky black lace-up boots as part of her costume. 

Doctor Who returns in November 2023 with three special episodes to coincide with the show’s 60th anniversary, with David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor.

The Fifteenth Doctor, played by Ncuti, will then take control of the TARDIS, with his first episode airing over the festive period next year.

In October Jodie Whittaker stepped down from her role as The Doctor, replaced by returning star David for the upcoming anniversary episodes.

The Power of the Doctor was jam-packed with excitement as famous faces returned, Jodie bowed out after five years as the Time Lord, David made his return, and fans were given a first-look at Ncuti Gatwa as the 14th Doctor.

A number of former assistants – including Janet Fielding, who plays Tegan – and former Doctors Peter Davison and Colin Baker made guest appearances in the epic.

The episode came to a very dramatic conclusion as Jodie’s Doctor shockingly regenerated into a very familiar face – David Tennant’s 10th Doctor.

Despite not being ready to regenerate, she said while watching the sunset: ‘The blossomiest blossom. That’s the only sad thing. I want to know what happens next.

‘Right then, Doctor Whoever-I-am-about-to-be. Tag, you’re it,’ before Tennant made his shock appearance.

The newly regenerated Doctor ran his fingers over his teeth and said ‘I know these’ clearly perplexed as he returned to his former body.

David is returning for three special episodes, set to air in November 2023, after bowing out from the role in 2010.

The feature length 60th celebration of the sci-fi series will also star Catherine Tate, reprising her role as companion Donna Noble.

Jodie’s finale episode on Sunday night ended with a short trailer for the anniversary episodes, which will hit screens in 2023.

The trailer teased Ncuti’s much-anticipated arrival as the star was seen asking: ‘Can someone tell me what the hell is going on?’ 

Following the episode, returning showrunner Russell T Davies said: ‘If you thought the appearance of David Tennant was a shock, we’ve got plenty more surprises on the way!’ 

‘The path to Ncuti’s Fifteenth Doctor is laden with mystery, horror, robots, puppets, danger and fun! And how is it connected to the return of the wonderful Donna Noble? How, what, why? We’re giving you a year to speculate, and then all hell lets loose!’
