Doctor Who’s upcoming 11th season got a new trailer at Comic-Con 2018, and much like the teaser aired during the World Cup final last week, the focus is all on the three new companions that will be accompanying Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor on her journeys through time and space.
“All of this is new to me.”
“All of this is new to me,” intones the Doctor in a voiceover, “New faces, new worlds, new times,” — a fitting sentiment, given that the long-running British sci-fi show is entering an entirely new era: along with Whittaker beginning her run as the Doctor, Chris Chibnall is taking the helm behind the scenes as the new showrunnner. Whittaker is also the first woman to play the role of Doctor, taking over for Peter Capaldi, who portrayed the Twelfth Doctor for the past few seasons.
The new trailer doesn’t give away much — just a few clips of the Doctor, a glimpse of her new sonic screwdriver, some presumably alien landscapes, and a couple of shots of the three new companions revealed last week: Graham, Yasmin, and Ryan (played by Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill, and Tosin Cole, respectively). But we shouldn’t have too long to wait — the new series is expected to premiere sometime in October.
