The Doctor is well and truly in with this brand new trailer for Series 11, released today by the BBC. If you haven't seen it yet then click above to watch it before continuing!
We begin the trailer with some stunning shots that are easily some of the best seen in Doctor Who to date, with Double Negative taking over as VFX editors of the series. The stunning landscape and alien craft looks straight out of a Hollywood sci-fi blockbuster!
We begin with The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) pointing her brand new sonic-screwdriver at something, what could she be defending? And where is she? There seems to be a lot of triangular buildings in this trailer- you will see what I mean later...
Here we have Jodie wielding a hammer saying "When people need help, I never refuse". What struck me here was she did come across as a little angry, could she be reacting to something one of our new companions said? Hmm.
Unknown cast member question why we are trusting this 'Doctor', lovingly responded with "because she's in charge" and "says US". What a great scene!
"Let's get a shift on"- The Doctor in her lovely Yorkshrie accent!
And they are doing just that! We can see the Doctor, Graham (Bradley Walsh), Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) running away from new characters Angstrom and Epzo- teased in the new synopsis for the series from showrunner Chris Chibnall. At first I thought they could be Judoon however, I believe these are new creatures entirely- and they don't look very happy!
The ever-wonderful Bradley Walsh here, detonating a bomb! But what's that on his face? Looks like the same contraption seen in this promotional image from Doctor Who Magazine, last month:
Speaking of explosion's, here is one! And it's massive! This looks to be Yasmin running away from a fireball in what looks to be a science laboratory of sorts.
Now we will see this corridor once more with Yaz, soon, but we first have Jodie running down the corridor (doing what the Doctor does best!) away from some sort of villainous creature.
Another stunning shot of Jodie wearing her welding goggles, what could she be making? If you've seen the pictures, then you will know! But don't spoil it for others.
Here we have our 2018 TARDIS Team walking down what looks to be an 1950's American street (see American car in background), could this be the long rumoured Rosa Parks episode? Even Chibnall went on to mention 'Rosa' in the list of teasers he gave out recently...
Another great visual shot, looking at a building in ruin. This looks similar to the region where we saw Angstrom and Epzo? This has also been rumoured to be Episode 2 of the new series, called, "The Ghost Monument" written by Chris Chibnall, himself.
As Thirteen, says, she's "just a traveller"
Now I propose a theory. This space-age looking building almost certainly looks like a hospital. And look to the right, its Ryan and Graham, but where's Yasmin? The Doctor doesn't seem happy. And what did this trailer end with? Look below:
Could the Doctor have gotten Yasmin injured somehow? This would be a good way to show how the Doctor can still make mistakes. The Doctor blows someone a kiss, as she walks out this sterile looking room. At first I thought it was the Zero Room (for those that remember that!) but I think I could be correct that on the other side of the camera is Yasmin, perhaps sustaining injuries from an adventure-gone wrong.
We then see a shot of our Doctor running down a corridor, her iconic silhouette. Who or what is she running to/from? Time will tell.
Now we have seen this shot before, but not completely. We now have added VFX with what looks like ribbons of some description billowing around them. Ribbons, you say? Didn't I hear 'Ribbons' mentioned as part of Chibnall's cryptic clues a few days back? Whatever these ribbons are, they look threatening. Who knew art supplies could be so terrifying. Art students do.
We then see this same corridor from before that the Doctor was running down, and it seems Yaz is kicking something down it. Now what could this be?
Other than the 'blowing kiss' shot, from before, this is our last shot. A glorious HD shot of a spaceship coming out of what looks like hyper-speed. Again, the VFX here are out of this world. the realism that is able to be captured is superb.
And that is it for the new trailer! What did you think? Let us know below!
