Rose Ayling-Ellis, an EastEnders actress and very well-liked deaf actor, is the front-runner to join the redesigned Doctor Who ensemble in 2019.
As the first deaf performer to have a regular part on the BBC soap opera EastEnders, Rose Ayling-Ellis has played Frankie Lewis for the past two years. Her reputation has increased ever since she dazzled viewers with her legendary performances on Strictly Come Dancing, but now there may be an even greater opportunity for the inspirational performer due to a prospective new sci-fi part.
In a poignant Instagram post, Rose Ayling-Ellis bid farewell to EastEnders and looked back on her accomplishments on Albert Square.
Rose’s next move has been widely predicted since she made her statement, and some admirers think they have figured out the next leading part for her.
Ncuti Gatwa of Sex Education was revealed to be the new Doctor Who, but his companion has not yet been established.
Some ardent viewers of the BBC science fiction program think the Strictly Come Dancing champion will play the role of the Time Lord’s sidekick.
Huge Doctor Who fans appear to have chosen Ncuti’s companion, and this would undoubtedly be a well-liked option for those who watch the venerable BBC program.
Doctor Who fan Owen added to the rumor on Twitter beneath a picture of Rose that had been altered to include the iconic TARDIS.
He tweeted: “Rose Ayling-Ellis has commented about her new employment role… “At the conclusion of this month, you will learn more. I’m not permitted to speak. Is it possible that this is for #DoctorWho?”
Another admirer enthusiastically wrote about how the actor had inspired them and expressed their strong support for her landing the job.
“Having an actor who began his career in Dundee be the next Doctor and an actress who could be the first companion with a disability would be a dream come true for me,” declared Andrew Batchelor.
I really, truly hope this is true, the enthusiastic Dundee ambassador continued.
The show’s admirers expressed their happiness and seem to be exerting pressure on the producers to include Rose.
“Okay, the fact the extremely trustworthy reporter for The Mirror is now reporting on this rumor, I’d say it’s VERY probable Rose is the new Doctor Who companion,” the fan page BBCWilliamWho tweeted.
They also said “I’m trying not to get too optimistic… However, she and Ncuti would become well-known.”
More fans kept adding to the rumors, and in addition to being complimented for her acting abilities, they also liked Rose’s demeanor as seen in her performance with Giovanni Pernice on Strictly.
Tweeted TimelessOwen: “Rose Ayling-Ellis will undoubtedly be the 14th Doctor’s companion, in my opinion. Disability representation in DW is desperately required, and I believe Andy Pryor stated that they would cast more disabled persons in the show.”
I would love to see more deaf people like me represented on DW, he continued.
Rose would undoubtedly be in the running if there were betting odds on who the next companion would be, but there are none.
Smith, Matt Rose Ayling-Ellis is NOT the next companion, according to Emmy Campaigner’s tweet. If I were a betting man, I would be losing money if this were true.
The following season will commemorate 60 years of Doctors, Daleks, and of course the iconic TARDIS appearing on BBC television.
Jodie Whittaker joined the sci-fi drama as the 13th Time Lord, but she will leave the role in a farewell special episode in October.
Her last moments will include a tribute to former Time Lords, notably David Tennant, as well as the handover of power to the next Doctor.
In November, Ncuti should begin shooting scenes for the upcoming series.
