doctor who season 11 trailer

“I’m the Doctor and I never refuse to help.”

With those words, Jodie Whittaker quickly establishes herself as the brightest and most joyful Doctor that we’ve seen in ages — a huge 180 from her grim predecessor Peter Capaldi. From the looks of the new trailer for Doctor Who season 11, it looks like the long-running BBC sci-fi series is heralding the dawn of a new era — or maybe a return to the campy, fun-loving days of early New Who. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of action, explosions, aliens, and peeks at the Doctor’s new sonic screwdriver. And of course, a whole lot of running.

But thankfully, that’s all about to change with its upcoming season, which delivers the most diverse slate of writers and directors Doctor Who has ever had. And with the first female Doctor about to take over the keys to the TARDIS, it’s perfect timing.

“All of this is new to me. New faces, new worlds, new times. So if I asked really, really nicely, would you be my new best friends?”

That’s the question Jodie Whittaker poses to her three new companions played by Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill, and Tosin Cole in the first official Doctor Who season 11 trailer, but it’s also a question directed at us longtime Doctor Who fans who are always a little wary whenever the Doctor regenerates and a new actor takes on the beloved role of the time-traveling alien. Will we accept Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor — the 13th actor to take on the role, but only the first woman to do so? Yes, yes we will.

Peter Capaldi had an emotional exit from Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time,” which saw the Twelfth Doctor regenerating into the Thirteenth Doctor played by Jodie Whittaker.
