On the set of “Barbie,” Ryan Gosling sported a Ncuti Gatwa shirt while playing the role of The Doctor.
Ryan Gosling has been photographed out and about again with his freshly blonde Ken hair, but this time around, it’s not the stunning do that’s capturing our eye. Instead, it’s something else entirely. Instead, it’s the clothing that he chose to wear.
Recently, the actor was seen wearing a black shirt that had a fan-made graphic of Ncuti Gatwa, the newest Time Lord on Doctor Who. Gatwa is also his co-star in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, which is now in production. (Just in case you missed it, on Sunday, May 8, it was revealed that Ncuti will be taking over the controls of the TARDIS from the current Doctor, Jodie Whittaker. Ncuti would become the first Black actor to occupy the main position full-time, after Jo Martin’s recurrent tenure as the Fugitive Doctor.)
Ryan Gosling Wore Ncuti Gatwa to the “Barbie” Set as The Doctor
Ncuti went to Instagram and uploaded a tale in which she showed Ryan removing his denim jacket to display its pattern. He referred to them as “Dolls backing Doctors” in his writing. “Yass King. As though I were incapable of loving him any longer.
Matthew Purchase, a fan of the television show Doctor Who and a graphic designer, created the artwork that was put on Ryan’s shirt. Ncuti added a new slide to the presentation, which credited the artist who created the design. Purchase utilised an image taken by Robert Wilson of Ncuti wearing a yellow jacket and golden jewellery, and put it in front of a whirling prism vortex, replete with Wilson’s watermark. The photograph was used by Purchase. Now, the following line may be seen in Matthew’s Twitter bio: “My name was previously worn on Ryan Gosling’s breast.”
The showrunner for Inbound, Russell T. Davies, joked about the fact that Ryan was wearing illegal merchandise when he uploaded a picture of him wearing the shirt. According to what Russell stated, this photo shows Ryan Gosling in character as Doctor Who, wearing a t-shirt depicting Ncuti Gatwa. “Of course, we are going to sue him. Illegal merch.”
Ryan is no stranger to the world of Doctor Who, having been captivated by Matt Smith’s portrayal as the Eleventh Doctor. Jokes about the law to the side, he is a fan of the show. “Doctor Who was on TV and he was doing a scene where he had a microphone and he was literally ruling the universe telling these spaceships how it was going to be,” Ryan said in an interview with Digital Spy in 2015. “He was doing a scene where he was literally ruling the universe telling these spaceships how it was going to be.”

It was reported by Ncuti’s co-star in Barbie, Simu Liu, that the cast of the film found out about the Doctor Who casting at the same time as the rest of the world. When the cast arrived at work the following Monday, they were surprised to learn that Ncuti had kept the news a secret for two months. The film Barbie, in which Margot Robbie plays the title character, is scheduled to be released in July of 2023. Also starring in the film will be America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Emma Mackey, and Issa Rae.
