New ‘Doctor Who’ Trailer Shows Off Jodie Whittaker’s Time Lord

Alongside the new trailer above, the Thirteenth Doctor, who will be played by Jodie Whittaker, showed off what she'll be using during Season 11 to the packed hall. "So you won't see very much from the past, though there will be things here and there". It was clever and amusing, and even had a Matt Smith easter egg (!), but fans were left craving something a bit meatier and thankfully, they've now got just that.

The new season of Doctor Who premieres this fall on BBC America, and at San Diego Comic-Con this week, we got a chance to interview the cast, producer and showrunner! "All of this is new to me", Whitaker says in the trailer, in-between galaxy-hopping and time-traversing as this show tends to do.

We can't say whether or not Jodie Whittaker reads Vulture, but she did answer one of our Burning Questions about this year's Comic-Con. That energy will be key in bringing together the new companions (Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill, and Tosin Cole), who were cast due to their "incredible range" which goes hand-in-hand with the varying levels of emotion in the new season, according to Chibnall. We briefly see the Doctor and her friends traveling through some alien terrains, along with the Doctor wielding what appears to be a flamethrower. With the new season starting in October, the Doctor will be a woman-and that's not the only change in the show.

Within the Doctor Who narrative, the "sonic screwdriver" is a sort of catch-all tool which different incarnations of the Doctor have carried and used, typically to unlock doors but also for a variety of other purposes. "There is a story to who the Doctor comes by this Sonic".

New does seem to be the operative word. "I want for all of you talking about it at the same time".

"It was incredibly nervewracking since the reveal had happened", she said.

When it came time to cast the companions, "we were looking for people who have incredible range, because the tone of the show demands everything", Chibnall described.

Doctor Who will also have a new showrunner as Chris Chibnall took over as the executive producer from Steven Moffat.
