After last weekends short teaser, many were left underwhelmed as we were not shown any 'actual' footage from the new series. However, all has changed as we finally have our very first full trailer for the new series. A Space Oddity is here to break down every exciting scene!
Make sure you come back to find out more San Diego Comic Con news and breakdowns!
View the trailer below:
We begin with the Doctor waking up on a sofa, which immediately gives off David Tennant 'The Christmas Invasion' vibes. Will the Doctor spend time out in her first episode after her fall in 2017's Christmas Special 'Twice Upon A Time'? Who knows...
We then see 3 shots of our brand new companions: Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Graham (Bradley Walsh). See below:
We next get a good look at the new worlds on offer in the new series...
And the new times... Could this be our first look at the heavily rumoured Bus Boycott episode featuring Rosa Parks?
We then see Jodie Whittaker glowing with regeneration energy still wearing her predecessor, Peter Capaldi's clothing. Could this possibly be when she first hits the ground after falling out the TARDIS?
Us at ASO are pretty baffled at what's happening in this scene, Thirteen is screaming in pain and holding her head in her hands, however looking at the lens flares given off on this scene, it's presumed this isn't the first episode as you don't get that type of sunlight in Sheffield!
We then get another look at Bradley Walsh's character of Graham, one of three new best-friends of the Doctor!
Speaking of best friends, here we have the money shot! The gorgeous shot of them in what seems to be the same Rosa Parks episode (rumoured to be Episode 2), standing in formation.
Now this scene seems to be set in the first episode, as the Doctor is still wearing the 12th Doctor's shirt and waistcoat. ASO presume the Doctor could be forging either new TARDIS keys or her new Sonic Screwdriver!
We then see a few quick shots of the four riding horseback and walking through dark tunnels.
Our second money shot! Silhouettes of the four stood on a gorgeous landscape overlooking the ocean and mountain range- akin to that of the promotional material released early this year.
We very quickly get a glimpse of the new sonic, which is now available to pre-order!
After a few more action shots, the trailer closes with the amazing Jodie Whittaker saying 'Right, this is gonna be fun!" and we couldn't agree more!
In related news, show-runner Chris Chibnall has stated that this series will feature no 2-parter episodes, with each of the 10 episodes being interlinked however remaining standalone. And further talk from Chris Chibnall has supported that Doctor Who will get a Christmas special this year. The Christmas episode is not part of the 10 episodes filmed for Series 11.
Chris Chibnall also confirmed that we will not be seeing the Daleks this series as he wants to 'focus on new monsters and villains'.
Speaking at this years San Diego comic convention, Chibnall claimed: "We've been making this show in secret- very deliberately in secret- since October last year. This is like our coming-out party".
He added: "All the crew who'd been working on the show for years, saw Jodie in action and one day said, "She's the Doctor"
"They're written so well, there's so much in the characters. There was so much in the script that I didn't need to do an awful lot, I just needed to turn up and have fun. Yaz is a 19 year old girl from Sheffield. She enjoys her job but she thinks she can do a little bit more, so she asks for a little bit more, and she GETS a little bit more. So she gets whisked away on this adventure" said new friend of the Doctor, Mandip Gill on playing Yasmin aka Yaz.
Jodie also spoke about her first day on set: "I was in someone else's costume & someone else's TARDIS & I was afraid to touch anything"
