In the midst of many popular names, the one name that was frequently taken was Lydia West.
It all happened because of a post on Doctor Who forum Gallifrey Base alleging that West was, in fact, the new lead.
The news turned out to be a hoax as the new Doctor Who is Ncuti Gatwa. He rose to fame following the role of Eric Effiong on the Netflix series "Sex Education."
