Whittaker rules out Doctor who gender pay gap issue

The new series will represent a clean break from the recent past with the show having been regenerated on almost every level

Whovians can now get a first real look at Jodie Whittaker's new Doctor and her companions, through this San Diego Comic-Con trailer for the new series of Doctor Who.

"All of this is new to me", Jodie Whittaker says in the trailer, which was released during the BBC show's panel.

Whittaker will be joined by her new best friends Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill, and Bradley Walsh, who will be playing Ryan, Yasmin, and Graham, respectively.

The darker more brooding elements of modern Doctor Who – the kind that have painted the Doctor as a frightening all-powerful legend – are about to give way to something more grounded and fun

The Doctor Who panel included stars Whittaker, Cole, and Gill as well as new showrunner Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) who is taking over from Steven Moffat (Sherlock) in the role of head writer and executive producer, and fellow executive producer Matt Strevens. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. "So you won't see very much from the past, though there will be things here and there".

However, even if the Doctor herself will feel new-yet-familiar, one thing season 11 will explore is how this female Doctor navigates in the world.

Doctor Who Series 11 is upon us!

Instead they will watch a recording of the match between France and Belgium in Moscow, which will take place at 10pm local time. All 13 were brought to safety in a perilous rescue organised by Thai Navy SEALs and an worldwide team of cave-diving experts.

Doctor Who returns in the autumn for series 11, which will consist of a feature-length opener followed by nine 50-minute episodes.

About Whittaker's casting, Chibnall said, "I wrote three special scenes and Jodie and other people came in and read".

The audience would more than agree with the sentiments as Jodie's venture into the iconic shoes of Peter Capaldi's sensational character ought to be "new" and exhilarating to say the least. There are new faces (the Doctor and her friends, of course), new worlds (including a Mars-like one with burning vehicles and one that eerily resembles a '50s-era suburban neighborhood), and of course, a new sonic screwdriver. His revelation shouldn't suggest she won't meet old foes, however, as the producer added a "yet" to his comment.

While the cast was tight-lipped about the new TARDIS - since it blew up - they did unveil the 13th Doctor's sonic screwdriver. "It's 10 standalone episodes, there's no two-parters or anything like that", Chibnall said.

She uttered a quiet "brilliant" before her spaceship, the TARDIS, started to explode, throwing her out the doors and plummeting towards the ground.
