The Doctor: Ncuti Gatwa
Ruby Sunday: Millie Gibson
Jocelyn Sancerre: Golda Rosheuvel

Voice of Eric: Sami Amber
Poppy: Sienna-Robyn Mavanga-Phipps
Voice of Poppy: Shola Olaitan-Ajiboye

Voice of Marcel: Param Patel
Voice of Adjani: Lonnee Archibong
Rico Trieste: Jesus Reyes Ortiz
Lucia Colasanto: Yasmine Bouabid

Jocelyn Sancerre is likely in charge of monitoring the space station baby farm.

Carla and Cherry Sunday are Ruby’s Mother and Grandmother, respectively.

The character names for some of the babies appear on the cast list. They are Eric, Poppy, Sandra, Marcel and Adjani.

Eric is the baby seen saying, “It’s you!” in the trailer.

Poppy is mentioned by Russell T Davies in Doctor Who Magazine.

“The Doctor’s interaction with baby Poppy is unusually affecting because you know the real baby on set, little Sienna, isn’t acting. It’s a completely honest reaction to Ncuti as the Doctor, who plays it beautifully. Magic happens there.”

Actor Jesus Reyes Ortiz is known mainly as a talented dancer. Lucia Colasanto is listed as “Chief Engineer Colasanto” on Yasmine Bouabid’s Spotlight CV.

Robert Strange, who was most recently seen as Wrarth Warrrior Sergeant Zogroth in the Doctor Who 60th anniversary special The Star Beast, rounds out the cast as the Bogeyman.
