The first images of Ncuti Gatwa as the Doctor and Millie Gibson as his companion have been released by the BBC.

Gatwa is shown in pictures and video wearing brown check trousers and a matching long coat with bright orange top underneath, while Gibson is dressed in dark blue shorts and a short jacket.

Gibson was announced as the latest companion when she stepped out of the Tardis live on Children In Need.
