Doctor Who: Breaking down the new trailer for Jodie Whittaker’s first season as the Thirteenth Doctor

It’s been a little under a year since it was first announced that Jodie Whittaker would play the Thirteenth Doctor – it was, in fact, 16 July 2017 – and since then we’ve had relatively little news about the new series of Doctor Who.

Today, however, that changed, with a special trailer for Doctor Who series 11 airing at half-time during the World Cup Final.

The trailer gave us a brief look at the Doctor and her companions, promising new adventures to come – here’s a breakdown of everything you might have missed in the new trailer, and what it tells us about what to expect when Doctor Who returns.

So, obviously, I was very much excited about this trailer, because it’s Doctor Who and I love it, and I figured one thing I could probably do (since it was getting towards the end of the week and I hadn’t figured out the topic for my Yahoo column yet) is write about the trailer. I’ve done that sort of thing before, and it usually makes for a good article – take some screencaps, speculate a little about what each thing might mean, throw in a couple of jokes, sorted.

And then this trailer aired. A lovely, enigmatic, sort of mood driven piece… that is probably the most difficult-to-write-about trailer I’ve ever seen. Like, oh man.

Genuinely, I really had my work cut out for me with this one, and I think the fact I managed nearly 900 ish words – roughly 30 words for every second of content – is a testament to, if not necessarily skill, certainly something.

Earlier today, the BBC released a short trailer for the new series of Doctor Who – set to return on April 15th, Doctor Who series 10 will star Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, alongside Pearl Mackie as Bill and Matt Lucas as Nardole.

The new trailer teased the return of many classic villains, and the introduction of plenty of new ones – here’s what we saw.

I wrote an article breaking down the various elements of the new Doctor Who trailer – I spotted Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, and possibly Paul McGann!

(Paul McGann probably won’t be in the new series.)
