  • Hall H Debut Of New ‘Doctor Who’ Unveils New Season Teaser – Comic-Con

In addition to the new lead, the new showrunner and the new writers, this latest season of Doctor Who will also feature a new composer.

"All of this is new to me", Jodie Whittaker says in the trailer, which was released during the BBC show's panel.

Moffat's time, while exceptional in parts, had grown somewhat stale, and this really feels like a fresh start for the series, something echoed at San Diego Comic-Con.

The new Doctor points out how everything is new to her: new faces (including her own), new places, new times to travel through.

Jodie was given a standing ovation at the panel event, where she also unveiled her all-new sonic screwdriver.

Whittaker clearly respects the franchise's legacy, as she said filming her first scene was nerve-wracking because she was "in someone else's costume, on someone else's set, in their TARDIS". "And that's interesting, and that's why this role will continue to be layered and fascinating to play".

The upcoming eleventh series of Doctor Who has already been the subject of much fanfare as it cast the first ever female Doctor in the form of Jodie Whittaker.

Directors for the new season include Jamie Childs (episode one and seven), Sallie Aprahamian (two episodes), Jennifer Perrott, and Wayne Yip among others.

I'm personally very excited to see where this new Doctor takes us.

Whittaker will be joined by her new best friends Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill, and Bradley Walsh, who will be playing Ryan, Yasmin, and Graham, respectively. When the Thirteenth Doctor promises "This is going to be fun", we absolutely believe her.

"She asks for a bit more from life and she gets a bit more". "That pillar of hope is Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor Who", he added.

The trailer shows seeking out companions for her inter-dimensional adventures on the TARDIS, a time machine. "This is the Doctor Who for the modern age".

"You are going to be fantastic, I'm overjoyed", said Good Omens and American Gods creator Neil Gaiman on-camera. There is apparently a great story about how she gets her hands on it, with Whittaker teasing that she comes by it "a very specific way".
