New episodes of “Doctor Who” are only a few short weeks away and BBC America has a new trailer to tease the fans of the sci-fi series. This week one of the first official trailers for the landmark new season of “Doctor Who” was released on social-media, showcasing Jodie Whittaker and her fantastic new sonic screwdriver.
Last season we said goodbye to Peter Capaldi over the popular Christmas Special, he was one of the best Doctors to ever use a TARDIS and he will surely be missed by fans of the long-running show. Saying goodbye to a Doctor on the show is always bittersweet but now we have Whittaker taking over as the 13th Doctor and serving as the first female lead of the popular series. Whittaker will be joined by Ryan (played by Tosin Cole), Yasmin (played by Mandip Gill) and Graham (played by Bradley Walsh).
That’s not the only change coming to “Doctor Who” in the new season, the series is also moving in our actual time and space. “Doctor Who” will air on Sundays now, starting with the premiere on October 7th. The big debut will air the same time as the U.K. version, keeping Whovians connected with their U.K. fans, but the network hasn’t announced the official time yet. There will be a special encore of the premiere during the show’s regular primetime Sunday slot, so if you can’t watch the U.K. premiere you have another chance that same day.
Fans can watch the official trailer below, thanks to an upload to YouTube. Earlier this summer BBC America revealed the directors and writers of the new season, you can catch that list of popular artists right here.
If you want to set a reminder for the day, “Doctor Who” Season 11 will debut on Sunday, October 7th on BBC America.
