Excitement is rising rapidly as Season 11 of ‘Doctor Who’ arrives this fall. Fans are always pumped for new seasons, but the frenzy is extra high and not just because this installment introduces a new Doctor. There have been 12 so far, after all. But this year marks the first time the Doctor will be portrayed by a woman, ‘Broadchurch”s Jodie Whittaker.
Whittaker’s Doctor narrates the new full trailer for the 11th season.
“All of this is new to me. New faces, new worlds. New times. So if I asked really, really nicely, would you be my new best friends?”
She is likely addressing her new companions, Yasmin (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Graham (Bradley Walsh), who are also heavily featured in the clip, but clearly, there’s a double meaning as the inquiry is obviously also directed at the audience.
Watch the trailer for yourself below:
In case you missed it, this trailer was preceded by a teaser, which premiered during the World Cup. The companions are heavily showcased here:
What we haven’t seen much of yet are the threats that the 13th Doctor will face, but there’s still plenty of time.
As if a new female Doctor and four new companions weren’t enough, this series welcomes new showrunner Chris Chibnall, who previously worked with Whittaker on ‘Broadchurch’ and previously worked in the Who-niverse on the spinoff ‘Torchwood’.
The 11th season of ‘Doctor Who’ will consist of ten 50-minute episodes. The BBC has not yet announced a release date.
