Meet The Doctor’s New Companions In The New ‘Doctor Who’ Season 11 Teaser Trailer

BBC Offers First Look At Doctor Who's New 'Companions' In World Cup Halftime Teaser

In 2017, BBC announced that Jodie Whittaker would become the first woman to play the Doctor, and now fans are finally getting a glimpse at the new season.

On Sunday, the teaser trailer for Doctor Who Season 11 premiered during the World Cup Final, and it looks like the Time Lord will be recruiting some new companions.

The Doctor is an iconic character, but over the past decade, the companions have become an equally crucial part of the story.

The teaser gives the first glimpse at the friends the Doctor will bring aboard the TARDIS, the character’s time-traveling ship.

Many fans are especially looking forward to Whittaker’s debut, as the actor will make history as the first woman to portray the Doctor.

“In a way, it was a no-brainer. The fact that we were casting a female Doctor disappeared really quickly from our minds. We were just casting the Doctor and she felt like our Doctor,” he told the publication.

The Doctor Who panel is one of the most highly anticipated events of the convention, and attendees will have the opportunity to get acquainted with both the new Doctor and her companions.

Doctor Who fans across the world on Sunday got their first glimpse of the Time Lord’s new companions in a specially filmed preview of the new series, due to air this fall on BBC America.

The 50-second teaser debuted during halftime of the World Cup final between France and Croatia, which aired in the U.K. on BBC One.

Last summer, the BBC used another major sporting event, Wimbledon, to announce the first-ever woman to play the lead role on Doctor Who’, Jodie Whittaker.

Whovians, as fans love to call themselves, were treated to seeing the new Doctor’s new “Friends” in action during the World Cup preview.

Season 11 of Doctor Who will open with a feature-length episode, followed by nine 50-minute instalments, in the fall on BBC America.

Chris Chibnall is head writer and executive producer, while Matt Strevens and Sam Hoyle are exec producers for BBC Studios and Ben Irving is exec producer for BBC One.

Doctor Who is a BBC Studios production for BBC One and a BBC America co-production.

Doctor Who has announced three new cast members who will join the 13th Doctor when Season 11 kicks off in 2018.

Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill have been cast as the new friends of Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor.

Walsh is quite familiar with the Doctor Who world, having been a fan first some 50 years back.

Gill, who is known for her role in Hollyoaks, said she was “Over the moon” that she is joining Doctor Who.

Gill appeared in Doctors, Cuckoo, and Casualty, and will also be part of a new drama on BBC, Love, Lies and Records.

Doctor Who Season 11 will have 10 episodes, with the premiere episode lasting for 60 minutes and the rest will run for 50 minutes.

Doctor Who is expected to air fall 2018, although there is no specific air date yet.

The “Doctor Who” trailer that debuted during the World Cup game on Sunday didn’t really show much of the newest Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker.

BBC America’s promo video starts with Ryan, who seems to be eating breakfast in a diner while watching coverage of the World Cup on his phone.

Again, there’s shaking and some lights, and then we get a glimpse of the Doctor’s boots.

Finally, the “Doctor Who” Season 11 teaser ends with a message: “The universe is calling.” Then Whovians get one good look at the Doctor herself.

The Doctor has always loved to accessorize, and this choice is far subtler than the fez obsession.

The convention is one of the largest nerd gatherings in the world, and “Doctor Who” is set to have a presence there.

BBC America has stated that “Doctor Who” Season 11 is expected to debut in the fall, but an exact release date has yet to be announced.
