The brand new series of Doctor Who marks the arrival of Jodie Whittaker, the 13th Doctor – a super-smart force of nature – alongside a new team of friends.

Already highly anticipated, the new-look series heralds a brand-new era for Doctor Who with a world-class team at the helm led by showrunner Chris Chibnall. The show will be full of action and adventure, humor and thrills, an unmissable adventure across all of space and time.

    Well it’s been a year since Jodi was revealed as the new Doctor at the end of the men’s Wimbledon final, how time flies 😉

      I wonder if any of the people who got the hump over jodies casting are having sudden changes of heart now?

      Yeh they’ve had a whole year to come to terms with the fact they’ll have to watch a woman on a tv show

      Well I’m one and haven’t changed my opinion as yet if I ever will but inevitably have some amount of curiosity as to what the trailer(s) might reveal OTHER than just the characters.

      In any event we’ll soon find out whether this looks like being a roaring success or just a PC/SJW fuelled disaster that sceptics like myself fear it might be. I’m thinking about not watching the first three episodes when transmitted but recording/ IPlaying them. Then after seeing what the verdict is here and elsewhere depending on what’s generally being said make a decision about watching them.

      Well its no secret I got the hump over Jodie being cast this time last year, I still feel it should not have happened and worried how it will all pan out.
      So no sudden change of heart from me but I am giving it a go and I did see the scene on the net a couple of weeks ago (Someone showed me it actually) and I did feel a bit of pride because the Doctor has my accent.

      Looking forward to the official first look today, shame it’s not England in the final though.

      I personally, am going to wait until the first couple of episodes to air and watch them and then decide, on the new show and Jodie Whittaker . My hopes are they don’t go the way season 9 and 10 went, with it’s political agenda, and they focus on make good stories. Hopefully Chris Chibnall can make a good series, but if he has to bring back and old villain, don’t redesign them like the sillurans.

      Also, even though I said I hope chibnall can make a good series, I am still not 100% on board with him being the new show runner, because of his previous work on dr who and his clear lack thought towards the show and fan base.


      July 15th, 2018 - 11:16am

      So you were aggrieved. whether curious or watching out out of the corner of your eye, you,ll no doubt be back ranting or raving like the rest of us and delivering your inevitable verdicts.Pats 86, that wasn,t a personal dig at you but just the general disgruntled fanbase at the time.

    • Pats86

      THE ERGON I wouldn’t have minded had it been a personal dig because I have been extremely outspoken on Jodie’s casting and the fan base has been split so it would be inevitable anyway but thanks for pointing it out.
      At first I was not going to even bother again with Doctor Who but as a life long fan I just can’t let go until I have seen the next series at least or the first few episodes perhaps?
      But I cannot lie, I am looking out of the corner of my eye and in all honesty I think I am softening and maybe more open to a female Doctor and that was never going to happen this time last year!
      That said I fully believe the casting was a PC agenda pushed upon us by the BBC and that the whole structure and history of DW may suffer because of it.

      I felt ,at the time, the same way when Missy was revealed to be the master but eventually conceded and came around. The show was evolving and i have to get used to it. I could always turn away but in my heart of hearts i know i probably won,t. Or at least come back at some point and reevaluate.

      Bring back the original Silurians like the Sea Devils, maybe have something like a new Dalek/Movellan war as well as power down any PC/SJW angle then despite my misgivings about the gender change getting me to not watch will still be like a chocaholic turning down the passing round of a chocolate box selection.

    The way they’ve been talking ‘footage promoting the show’, ‘premiering new footage’ and ‘exclusive new look at the doctor and her friends’ makes it sound like it’s some sort of small clip that will be shown rather than an actual trailer. Maybe they’re saving the trailer for SDCC. I hope it’s not a clip though because that specially filmed scene with Bill was the cringiest thing I’d seen when it aired and gave me zero hope for series 10.

    Is this supposed to have sound? I can’t hear anything…

    • Doctor Stu

      July 13th, 2018 - 10:43pm

      No sound which is a bit stupid because they could have used some generic music or the same sounds as from the logo reveal trailer

      No, I don’t think so.

      Great!, I was totally lost… I watched this on several different sites trying to figure out was was wrong. They should have had some music or something it feels mehhh…

    Is this the trailer that was supposed to be shown during the Tunisia match? The one that teases a character return?

    • Doctor Stu

      July 13th, 2018 - 4:27pm

      I feel like I don’t want any spoilers this time around, I’ve managed it with Star Wars so I wonder if it’s possible with doctor who. If there is a character reveal I’m gonna try and avoid it. Most of the rumors aren’t true anyway


      July 13th, 2018 - 5:09pm

      If there is a reveal, though there is little substance there, How are you going to avoid? you must still want to see the trailer?

    • The Outcast

      No, the June trailer stuff was all just a rumour with no proof behind it. The trailer air date was wrong, said returning villains was just a repeat of other rumours and that returning character is always rumoured. It was fake.


      July 14th, 2018 - 2:09pm

      This is the real mccoy though. the official trailer confirmed. The others were rumour mill.

    I feel like this is karma for me moaning about Americans getting news of our show first that destiny has made it so I’m still in America on holiday when this is going to air in Britain


    July 13th, 2018 - 2:58pm

    It mentions first trailer , so will SDCC get an extended version i wonder? I hope they bring Jamie back not jack as speculated but that is too wishful thinking i guess.


      July 13th, 2018 - 3:36pm

      Probably an alternate teaser at SDCC. the first official one sunday i,m guessing.

    • Dalek Bumps

      I don’t think Chris Chibnall is one to give too much away in a brief trailer. It just isn’t his style. He’s keeping as much as possible under wraps.

    • The Outcast

      July 14th, 2018 - 9:02am

      I’ve heard the teaser coming this Sunday is specially filmed, rather than being a montage of clips. Think the Series 1 & 2 “do you want come with me” teasers, or the Series 5 teaser or the “Time for Heroes” teaser.

      Then at Comic Con we might get more news, like an official reveal of the new Sonic Screwdriver and leaked clip, an air date (assuming it isn’t in the teaser) and maybe even a trailer.

    i am guessing a teaser trailer for the full trailer on thursday at sdcc or the official release of that leaked clip.
    However if it is the clip why not just put it on the doctor who youtube channel now instead of making us all wait two days for something many people have already seen


      July 13th, 2018 - 3:30pm

      During half time of the world cup on sunday.

  • Doctor Sr

    July 13th, 2018 - 2:46pm

    This Sunday? Hold on so do British people get this news before SDCD then. It’ll probably be a trailer for the full trailer shown at SDCC

    • The Outcast

      July 14th, 2018 - 8:59am

      There will be a teaser on Sunday, then there will be more news at SDCC. So a big news week for us Doctor Who fans.
