“All of this is new to me… New faces… New worlds… New times,” narrates Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor (and the first woman Doctor!), who is set to make her TV debut in Doctor Who’s upcoming 11th season. A short new trailer debuted at Comic-Con today, giving us a sneak peek at Whittaker’s Doctor in action – and she’s got multiple Companions!
It’s been almost five years since Doctor Who celebrated its 50th with a “Day of the Doctor,” though the event could have been more momentous. Departing showrunner Steven Moffat shares an early draft that would have featured fan-favorite Christopher Eccleston’s return.
Doctor Who may be entering a new era, but the series that re-started it all has new secrets to spill. Christopher Eccleston finally shares details of his one-season exit and tensions with Russell T Davies, including a surprise complication with beloved companion Billie Piper.
Doctor Who has finally made a deal with Alan Cumming, but not for the title role. Instead, reports confirm that Cumming may recur as a new “nice” baddie for series star Jodie Whittaker, appearing in Season 11 this fall.
Jodie Whittaker is more than just an inspiration to Doctor Who fans; she’s inspiring the comics industry as well. The long-running sci-fi serial’s first female Doctor will also regenerate a brand-new comic series this fall, as developed by an all-female creative team.
