First New Trailer for “Doctor Who” Series 11

Steve Porter / July 23, 2018

Hot on the heels of the first teaser for the upcoming season Doctor Who, the BBC has given us the first official trailer for Series 11.

The trailer for the legendary sci-fi series premiered at Comicon and offers us our first real look at the latest regeneration of the Doctor, an enigmatic alien who explores all of time and space in the TARDIS—mostly just for the fun of it. The Thirteenth Doctor will be played by Jodie Whittaker (Broadchurch) and is joined by three new companions, Yasmin (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole), and Graham (Bradley Walsh).

We also got brief glimpses of what we assume will be major set-pieces in future episodes, including an alien junkyard, a desert planet, and a dark spaceship. The trailer is overlaid with a speech from the Thirteenth Doctor, delivered with ridiculous charm by Jodie Whittaker, promising that this is going to be fun. Yes, yes it is.

We can’t wait for series 11 to land in our neck of time and space.
