After the blockbuster success of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, rumour has it that Ryan Gosling might be the newest addition to the British series Doctor Who. Barbie’s Ncuti Gatwa has bagged the role of the doctor in the series, and now all eyes are on Ryan’s potential addition to the esteemed cast of the show.

British tabloid The Sun recently reported about the potential casting of Ryan in Doctor Who. The tabloid calls it a “massive coup” for the series, suggesting that his inclusion would be a significant achievement.

According to reports by TVI insider in the UK, “This would be a huge coup for the show, but also a real honour for Ryan who is something of a Whovian.” The makers of the show, BBC, has neither officially confirmed nor denied the speculations. However, the possibility of Ryan joining the show has generated excitement among fans.

Ryan has never shied away from expressing his love for Doctor Who. The actor broke the internet when he donned a shirt with a fan-made design tshirt of Ncuti, as the doctor when the news of his casting was first announced.

Ncuti had earlier recalled an incident of Ryan expressing his admiration for the show. He told British Vogue earlier this year, “I remember Ryan Gosling bounding up to my trailer like, ‘Doctor Who is the coolest show in the world, man!’ And I was like, ‘What the hell?’ This show has incredible reach.”

Ryan also told The One Show. “I am such a big fan of Ncuti’s. He’s the coolest, and him playing Doctor Who is like the most exciting thing that's happening right now. I’m here for it.”

Ncuti will be playing the 15th doctor and will take the centre stage in December’s Christmas special.
