The thirteenth Doctor is getting ready to make her San Diego Comic-Con debut next week but BBC America is already teasing the new season on YouTube. The network released a quick teaser-trailer earlier today to get fans excited for the brand new episodes, which are set to premiere this fall.
Attending SDCC this year are Jodie Whittaker, Showrunner Chris Chibnall and Executive Producer Matt Strevens. Whittaker will be joined on the panel by two of her Doctor Who co-stars, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, who play Ryan and Yasmin. We will most likely get a preview of the new season at SDCC this year and hopefully we will get a firm premiere date for the new episodes. BBC America is currently telling fans that the new episodes will premiere “this fall”. Whovians across the globe can watch the new teaser below, filled with time fluctuations that only the Doctor could explain correctly.
The new season will also introduce a new series composer, Segun Akinola. The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire alumni will provide the score for the new episodes, ushering in a new era for the show, and introducing a new take on the legendary theme tune. As part of the BAFTA Breakthrough Brit program in 2017, Segun has already been recognized as one of the rising stars among British composers.
In the announcement Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall said, “Welcome to the Doctor Who family, Segun Akinola! We’re over the moon Segun’s agreed to join us, to provide the score for the next phase of the Doctor Who adventure. From our very first conversations, it was obvious Segun was a passionate, collaborative and delightful human being as well as a fantastic and bold composer. We’re looking forward to introducing the world to his exciting and emotional soundtracks for the Thirteenth Doctor.” Segun Akinola said in the same statement, “Doctor Who is woven into the fabric of British culture and recognized globally. I am absolutely thrilled to be given the privilege of working on such a beloved series and to bring my musical voice to it.”
