Doctor Who casts first ever black Doctor

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Doctor Who’ has cast Jo Martin as the first ever black Doctor.
During Sunday (26.01.20) night’s episode of the BBC sci-fi show, a previous unknown incarnation of the titular Time Lord was revealed, and for the first time in the show’s history, the character is being played by a black actor.
Jo – who is best known for starring in ‘Holby City’ – plays the previously unseen regeneration of the Doctor, and was revealed on Sunday as a different version of the current Time Lord, who is being played by Jodie Whittaker.
And whilst Jodie made history herself in 2017 when she was unveiled as the very first female Doctor – who regularly changes their face, and has previously been played by actors including David Tennant, Matt Smith, Tom Baker, and Peter Capaldi – it now seems The Doctor’s current look isn’t the first time she’s taken on a female form.
Jo’s Doctor – who was disguised as a human named Ruth Clayton for most of Sunday’s episode – is believed to be a very early version of the character who has somehow been cut out of the memory of Jodie’s incarnation.
The newly unveiled regeneration isn’t thought to be taking over from Jodie as the current Doctor, but will instead act in a similar way to when John Hurt played a version known as the ‘War Doctor’ for the 2013 anniversary special.
As of the time of writing, it’s unknown what the future will hold for Jo’s Doctor or for the rest of the series, but it’s believed this won’t be the last audiences see of the mysterious incarnation.
