She’s here! She’s here! We’ve got our first proper introduction of Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who!
And I have to say, I’m already interested in the series again. Whittaker lights up the screen as she takes on this new adventure and takes the show to new heights as the first female Doctor.
The trailer opens with Whittaker confused most likely fresh off her regeneration and stating “All of this is new to me.” And then in an adorable fashion after we see the new companions and her wielding a blowtorch she says, “New faces, new worlds. New times. So if I asked really, really nicely, would you be my new best friends?”
Her new companions are Yasmin, Ryan, and Graham played by Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole, and Bradley Walsh respectively. We don’t really get an idea of what her companions will be like but if they agree to help a time-traveling alien then they are quite alright in my book. (Author’s Note: Don’t travel with or follow strangers unless they are cool Time Lords.)
The newest season will be 10 episodes at 50 minutes each. Chris Chibnall will take over as showrunner. BBC America has not released a premiere date yet but the trailer says we should expect for new adventures this fall.
Who else is excited for the new season of Doctor Who?!
