Finally, it’s here – our official introduction to Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor and her series eleven pals. Following the teaser on Sunday (scroll down for that), the full trailer has now been released. And here it is…
Here’s our story from Sunday, starting with the original teaser…
Following the BBC’s recently founded tradition of piggybacking big Doctor Who announcements on big sporting events (Whittaker’s identity as the new Doctor was revealed during Wimbledon, Pearl Mackie’s first appearance aired during the 2016 FA Cup semifinal), the clip was first aired during BBC coverage of the World Cup final between France and Croatia.
It’s our first look, ahead of Doctor Who‘s San Diego Comic-Con appearance this coming Thursday the 19th of July, at the new series executive produced by Chris Chibnall, and starring Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill.
The new episodes will also feature a brand new score by composer Segun Akinola.
Doctor Who series eleven, which is set to have ten episodes, will air on BBC One this autumn, with the exact start date still to be confirmed. There’s more to read about the new run in our collection of Who news here.
Two words for you: Oh, and brilliant.
