Russell T Davies, Millie Gibson & Instagram Time Travel | Tech Reddy
If a Doctor Who Well, yesterday was a big day. That’s when we learned from the BBC’s Children in Need that it worked Millie Gibson (Coronation Treaty) joins the new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa as Ruby Sunday’s friend to begin with Russell T. Davies‘ return as a witness to the long-running fictional drama Doctor Who. Being a huge Columbo fan, we’re connecting the dots. Sometimes, it’s for no other reason than we just like how things connect. As we learned recently in an article we did about Davies in September, the day Davies, Gatwa and others were to be trial partners. Again, the “oh, that’s what it’s about” moment makes sense. As we were checking our news yesterday after Gibson’s announcement and realized that the calendar is very interesting for everyone. Of course, in an Instagram post, Gibson bid farewell to the cast, crew and fans of Coronation Street the day before Davies announced the friendship tests. It becomes apparent how fast things start to move.
“It’s very sad, but with great emotion that it’s time to say goodbye to Kelly Neelan. These past 4 years, I can’t begin to describe how much I’ve missed her. This place and everyone involved in this story is just amazing, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to end. I have met friends and a second family for life. I will never forget him. I love my time here and the memories it has given me. I can’t thank you enough for letting me be a small part of the Coronation family. Now, Kel,” Gibson wrote in his post. Instagram on September 23, announcing that he will leave the series. Here’s a look at Gibson’s announcement before checking out what happened the next day…
In the latest edition of Doctor Who Magazinescript editor Scott Handcock Excerpts from his published diary were shared which revealed that the next friendly tests were held on Saturday, September 24th (Davies announced that date without revealing what was happening). “Secret partner trials to take place in London – and Ncuti is coming!” Read Handcock’s entry. Well, now we’re curious. Is this a final trial to make things right and shut Gibson down as a friend? How many finalists were tested that day to help make the final decision? Sorry, like we said before? We just love connecting the dots…
Now take a look back at that moment at the BBC’s Children in Need event when Gibson first walked out of the TARDIS onto the stage for his world debut as a new partner.
