Doctor Who Season 11 is about as anticipated a season of TV as any others coming in 2018, thanks to the arrival of the new female Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, and the new showrunner Chris Chibnall. For so long now, news about this new Doctor Who era has been all but absent, with the producers keeping a tight lid on production details. But now, we finally have our first big Season 11 trailer, and it is hopefully just as wild and fun as fans have been hoping for. Check it out!
This past weekend, the first Doctor Who Season 11 preview was released, and while this trailer is approximately the same length, at least it has actual footage from the upcoming season to absorb. We first met Jodie Whitaker's 13th Doctor in last year's Christmas special, and nearly a year later, we'll finally see her embarking on her own adventures. Like every Doctor immediately after regenerating, 13 is getting used to her new body, and as it happens, this coincides with meeting her new companions: Bradley Walsh's Graham, Tosin Cole's Ryan and Mandip Gill's Yasmin. Or as 13 wants them to be, her new best friends. This trailer doesn't provide much in the way of specific plot details, but just like every other season, it will involve The Doctor and her companions traveling across time and space in the TARDIS. Oh, and for those who've been wondering, the 13th Doctor will be indeed be wielding a new sonic screwdriver, which will be explained in the first episodes of Season 11.
But that wasn't the only goodie dropped today at the Doctor Who San Diego Comic-Con presentation. The below poster shows the 13th Doctor in her new outfit and gives us a better look at her sonic screwdriver.
This illustration of the 13th Doctor alongside her new companions was also released, and judging by their reactions, they're both amazed and perplexed at hanging out with a madwoman in a box.
While we're still in the dark about a lot of what Doctor Who Season 11 has in store, new showrunner Chris Chibnall, who previously worked with Jodie Whitaker on Broadchurch, mentioned during the SDCC presentation that the new season is "pretty much all new stories, all new monsters, all new villains." So for those of you who have been anticipating seeing old foes like the Daleks and the Cybermen, unless there are surprises in store for the final two weeks of filming, it sounds like Doctor Who Season 11 will feel quite different from previous seasons.
Doctor Who is set to make its Season 11 debut on BBC America here in the States later this year, so be sure to stay tuned to CinemaBlend for more news and highlights. Then head to our summer premiere schedule to see what new and returning shows are on the way.
