Jodie Whitaker's Doctor Who Gets A Shift On In Series 11 Trailer

"I'm the Doctor", she says in the new trailer, who shows her waving a new version of her character's iconic sonic screwdriver.

The new Doctor Who shows us the best man for the job can definitely be a woman. That particular trailer arrived in "big reveal" format, which seemed appropriate, given that Whittaker is the first female Doctor, and fan anticipation is high. "When people need help, I never refuse". Between Whittaker and new showrunner Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch), I can't wait to see what tone the new season strikes.

Doctor Who returns on October 7th, via BBC, BBC America, or whatever network happens to carry it in your area.

The trailer also shows Whittaker wearing a striking pair of steampunk-style goggles, which could become her Doctor's signature affectation - much like Tom Baker's famous scarf, or Matt Smith's bow-tie.

Horning in on territory that Jimmy Kimmel's been claiming for half a decade, Stylist Magazine had the actress read the mean, sexist tweets about her casting - and she takes them to task.

The season kicks off with The Woman Who Fell to Earth on Sunday October 7 (time TBC), where Ryan Sinclair, Yasmin Khan and Graham O'Brien are about to have their lives changed forever as a mysterious woman, unable to remember her own name, falls from the night sky.

As the drop date approaches, the BBC has released a new trailer.

"It's about time." That's the tagline for the new season of Doctor Who.
