Yasmin Finney Joins Doctor Who Cast

Doctor Who gains its own heartstopper as Yasmin Finney joins cast

Yasmin Finney has joined the cast of Doctor Who playing the character of Rose and is filming scenes that are due to air in 2023 to coincide with the show’s 60th anniversary. Currently captivating audiences with her performance as Elle Argent in Heartstoppers, Yasmin is receiving rave reviews across the globe.

Speaking of joining Doctor Who Yasmin says: “If anyone would have told 8 year old Yasmin that one day she’d be part of this iconic show, I would have never in a million years believed them. This show has a place in so many people’s hearts, so to be seen as a trans actress by the legend himself Russell, has not only made my year, it’s made my life. I cannot wait to begin this journey and for you all to see how Rose blossoms. Get Ready.”

Russell T Davies, Showrunner adds: “Life on Doctor Who gets brighter and wilder, how can there be another Rose? You’ll find out in 2023, but it’s an absolute joy to welcome Yasmin to the Doctor Who set. We all fell in love with her in Heartstopper, one of those shows which changes the world – and now Yasmin can change the Whoniverse!”

    Tennant, Tate and Wilf, can’t get much better then that. Wilf is right up there as one of my favourite part time companions.

    One possible explanation it could be Tennant as the meta human doctor( half human half time lord) that was created in Journeys End ?. That would easily explain how Tennant would look older plus the different costume for the 60th anniversary Just a theory !.

      Heart stopper is one of the best things I’ve ever watched and she was really good in it as a side character so she’ll do good for the 60th anniversary. RTD is good at picking actors who can actually act.

      I wouldnt be at all surprised if the opening episode was titled ‘ Rose’ again.

      After giving it much thought and with Russell at the helm, i believe these two actors could be dynamic together Stu. Its like Russell tearing up the rule book and saying this is how its going to be for the foreseeable future. Good luck to them both in 2023-2024+
