Doctor Who FIRST LOOK: Millie Gibson transforms into Ruby Sunday

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

The former Coronation Street star, 18, battled the freezing January weather by wrapping up in a thick, padded coat while she continued working on the BBC show.

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

Ruby covered up her character’s costume and donned an oversized black padded coat with a light blue fleece lining.

As part of her costume, she wore chunky black lace-up boots that give a glimpse of Ruby’s edgy sense of style.

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

The Fifteenth Doctor, played by Ncuti, will then take control of the TARDIS, with its first episode airing during the festive season next year.

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

The Doctor’s power was filled with excitement as famous faces returned, Jodie retired after five years as Time Lord, David returned and fans got their first glimpse of 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 have guest-starred in the epic.

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

Though she wasn’t ready to regenerate yet, she said while watching the sunset, “The most flowery bloom. That’s the only sad thing. I want to know what happens next.

“Well then, doctor, whoever-I-will-become. Hello, it’s you,” before Tennant made his shocked entrance.

The newly regenerated Doctor ran his fingers over his teeth and said, clearly perplexed, “I know them” as he returned to his former body.

David returns for three special episodes, airing in November 2023, after saying goodbye to the role in 2010.

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

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

The trailer teased Ncuti’s much-anticipated arrival when the star was asked, “Can anyone tell me what the hell is going on?”

After the episode, returning showrunner Russell T. Davies said, “If you thought David Tennant’s performance came as a shock, we have many more surprises on the way!”

“The path to Ncuti’s Fifteenth Doctor is filled with mystery, horror, robots, puppets, danger and fun! And how does it relate to the return of the wonderful Donna Noble? How, what, why? We’ll give you a year to speculate, and then all hell will break loose!’
