Millie Gibson filled with excitement and awe at the same time. Knowing the expectations, she has to meet as the show has featured well-loved companions before her, she can’t wait to get started. In her statement:

Whilst still being in total disbelief, I am beyond honored to be cast as the Doctor’s companion. It is a gift of a role, and a dream come true, and I will do everything to try and fill the boots the fellow companions have traveled in before me. And what better way to do that than being by the fabulous Ncuti Gatwa’s side, I just can’t wait to get started.

From her Doctor Who partner, Gatwa says:

Millie just is the companion. She is full of talent, strength, she has a cheeky sparkle in her eye and is sharp as a razor. From the moment she walked into the room she captured all of our attention with her effervescence and then solidified that attention with the sheer torque of her talent. This adventure is going to be so wild and so fun, I cannot WAIT to sail the universe with Millie!

Gibson has been acting in the small screen since 2017 when she portrayed Mia in one episode of the television series Love, Lies and Records. Afterwhich, she landed the role of Indira in Jamie Johnson from that year to 2018. Then she played Lily Duffy in the miniseries Butterfly before she bagged the role of Kelly Neelan for the long-running television series Coronation Street.

From all of her credits as an actress, Davies is confident she can take on any challenge that Ruby Sunday might face. The showrunner said:

It’s the great honor of my job to find the next generation of talent, and Millie shines like a star already. She’s brilliant, dynamic, clever, and a wonderful actor. As a Coronation Street fan, I’ve seen Millie survive chases, guns, and sieges, but that’s nothing compared to what lies ahead for Ruby Sunday.

Thus, the newest tandem will debut November 2023. Notably, Doctor Who airs on the BBC in the United Kingdom and Ireland. At the same time, it streams on Disney Plus for the United States and other countries. Audiences can also watch past seasons on HBO Max.
