Doctor Who Series 11 Trailer Shows First Female Doctor In Action (VIDEO)
Doctor Who fans have been waiting fervently for the upcoming series 11 of new Doctor Who which will star Jodie Whittaker as the 13th, and first ever female, Doctor. The announcement of her casting last year sparked a frenzy among the fanbase, some of which was not entirely friendly, but many have expressed joy at the sci-fi hero furthering female representation.
To promote the new episodes, BBC has released the new Doctor Who Series 11 Trailer, to pair with their presence at San Diego Comic Con 2018. Now, fans can finally see the 13th Doctor and her new companions in action.
BBC has released the new trailer on the official Doctor Who YouTube channel. The trailer shows Whittaker’s regeneration of the Doctor, with voiceover from her reflecting on how her new body is as new to her as it is to the audience. We also see the Doctor’s three new traveling companions: Graham O’Brien, Ryan Sinclair and Yasmin Khan, portrayed by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill respectively.
The trailer shows the four heroes in various locales set in modern times, various past and future periods, and alien planets, as past series have been known to include. Check it out below:
Not shown in the trailer, but confirmed to appear in the new series are Alan Cumming as King James I, Sharon D. Clarke as Graham’s wife, and Lee Mack in an unknown role. The new series is set to premiere this October on BBC, and while there will be no multi-part episode storylines, there will be a Christmas Special.
The series certainly looks to be a daring new venture for the show, and hopefully many viewers will consider it to be brilliant. What do you guys think about the new Doctor Who series 11 trailer? Let us know in the comments below!
