Upcoming Doctor Who Will Reset the Franchise

Doctor Who 13th Doctor Jodie Whittaker

When asked what her message would be to young boys watching this season of Doctor Who, Whittaker says, "That it's okay to look up to women". "New faces, new worlds", we hear Whittaker's character say in the trailer.

It's a relatively short trailer, but it packs a punch and perfectly sells the more hopeful tone of Season 11, along with just how alien this version of the Doctor is.

Chris Chibnall, creator of the English crime series Broadchurch, is the showrunner for the new season.

"The thing about this role, which is why it is so unbelievable for any actor to play the role, is that essentially gender is irrelevant, and that's completely liberating", Whittaker said.

Jodie Whittaker arrives at the "Doctor Who" press line on day one of Comic-Con International in San Diego.

There was no collusion at all". "The European countries are our friends, and the Russians are not", McConnell declared. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested Tuesday that he could allow a vote on the legislation.


While the toy itself is pretty nifty - it lights up, just like the one on the show, and makes all the appropriately buzzy sonic screwdriver noises you'd hope it would make (it also rotates!).

I'm personally very excited to see where this new Doctor takes us.

She added: "No-one is going to suggest the role [Doctor Who] is paid less because you're a woman, and they didn't". 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.

There weren't many spoilers-in fact, the cast laughed about whether they could even reveal if the TARDIS was in the new series (after getting a bit blown up)-but we did learn there will be a Christmas special. "Also, that this is like no other job, and it's completely unique for every single person who plays the part". I'm hoping to see this new Doctor's personality pop out in future looks at the show-I enjoy these brief shots of Whittaker with her sleeves rolled up holding a blowtorch, which is giving off a sort of "mad scientist" vibe to it.

This is a new Doctor, a new showrunner, and a new age for Doctor Who, and while there will be easter eggs for fans to spot, don't expect the 13th Doctor to take too many trips down memory lane. "I felt very much as if I was in someone else's shoes", she laughed. Anything! And we did get something: a new trailer with some new stuff.
