The 13th Doctor shines in new DOCTOR WHO Season 11 trailer!
Doctor Who helped kick off San Diego Comic-Con with an impressive Hall H showing featuring Jodie Whittaker aka the 13th Doctor, during which the first trailer for Season 11 was revealed!
This first trailer isn’t revealing all too much, simply showing flashes of the new characters and glimpses at worlds to come as The Doctor explains who everything is new to her and sincerely her new companions–Bradley Walsh as Graham, Tosin Cole as Ryan and Mandip Gill as Yasmin– to be her “new best friends” before declaring how fun it will all be.
Though this is a new actor taking on the role, the same vibrant spirit of The Doctor is definitely coming through and we’re quite pleased that this short trailer already has us smiling.
“I’ve never approached a role thinking, ‘How would a woman do this?’ I’ve just approached it from my perspective. The wonderful thing about the Doctor is I’m playing an alien, so all those details are irrelevant,” Whittaker told the Hall H panel, according to THR. “Sometimes within episodes other people’s response is different because they’re speaking to a woman, and that’s interesting. And that’s why this role will continue to be layered and fascinating to play.”

Doctor Who Season 11 will air this fall on BBC and BBC America.
