SDCC: Full Trailer For Doctor Who Series Ten Released

Whittaker has said she is confident there will not be similar revelations related to Doctor Who in six months time. The show had its panel at San Diego's Comic-Con on Thursday, and now the new, expanded trailer has arrived.

Moffat's time, while exceptional in parts, had grown somewhat stale, and this really feels like a fresh start for the series, something echoed at San Diego Comic-Con.

Doctor Who Season 11, the first to be helmed by new showrunner Chris Chibnall, warps onto our screens this October.

While the football spot introduced us, if only vaguely, to the Doctor's presumed new squad of time-travelling companions, this clip gives us some insight into the Doctor herself (herself-wow, that was fun to type). There are new faces (the Doctor and her friends, of course), new worlds (including a Mars-like one with burning vehicles and one that eerily resembles a '50s-era suburban neighborhood), and of course, a new sonic screwdriver. "She doesn't feel anything like the doctor and the show feels catered to young kids".

"The thing about this role is that gender is irrelevant ... and that's incredibly liberating", she said.

The upcoming eleventh series of Doctor Who has already been the subject of much fanfare as it cast the first ever female Doctor in the form of Jodie Whittaker.

This is possibly why the new series, which returns in autumn, has been reported to have had an American-style writers' room, which allows the show to be dominated less by one personality, and more by a range of inputs and perspectives.

Speaking to Her Universe's Ashley Eckstein, she explained her favorite aspects of the new Doctor Who costume. "We have things you are not going to want to spoiled for", the EP added, with a grin.

Doctor Who will air on BBC One this autumn. The main focus of the trailer were Doctor Who's three companions. Admitting it was a bit weird to do press for a character before she played that person, it felt like a moment of truth being on the set of Capaldi's version of the TARDIS. Her "new best friends", as she calls them, will be Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Yasmin (Mandip Gill). "She's still the character you loved".

When asked if we can expect any callbacks or tie-ins to previous seasons, Chibnall frankly says, "not really".
