Everything We Learned at the Doctor Who Comic-Con 2018 Panel

Doctor Who Gets First Trailer at San Diego Comic Con 2018

If you're as excited for the new season of Doctor Who as we are, you'll need all the info from the show's panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and we'll have it all for you. The Doctor Who Christmas Special has run consistently for the last 13 years, since the series came back in 2005. The 40-second clip carries a voiceover from the new Doctor: "All of this is new to me".

Showrunner Chris Chibnall said Whittaker "just walked in the room and she was the Doctor".

Appearing before some 6,000 fans at San Diego's annual Comic-Con pop culture gathering, Whittaker said playing the role of the extraterrestrial being who explores the universe in the time machine and spacecraft known as the Tardis was "really liberating".

EP Stevens affirmed that there is an increased diversity in front of the camera with Whittaker, Cole, and Gill, and also behind the camera with new writers, directors, and crew. That could also be the case here, as the TARDIS' new time rotor (the thing in the middle that goes up and down when the machine's in flight) could be featured in the poster. "If I ask very nicely", she says in a post-regeneration moment of vulnerability, "will you be my new best friends?"

It also shows in the fresh take on the Doctor's costume and the redesign of her all-important little helper, the Sonic Screwdriver. And for much of the panel, the talk focused on why Whittaker has wowed everyone involved in the show, and how Whittaker accepts that this is no ordinary role.

BBC had released a teaser of the new Doctor Who during the World Cup on the final day of 15 July. "If you've never seen the show before it is the flawless time to start because you've got a brand new doctor".

"It was very amusing, very emotional".

After checking with Chibnall if she could reveal one more detail, she added, "sometimes within episodes, people's responses are different because they're speaking to a woman". Season 11 will feature 10 total episodes at 50 minutes each; the show will air on both BBC One and BBC America.

"The thing about this role, which is why it is so fantastic for any actor to play the role, is that essentially gender is irrelevant, and that's completely liberating", Whittaker said.

"As a woman who isn't a genre, is just a woman, I have never approached a role thinking, 'Oh, how do women do this?' I've just done it from my perspective".

Whittaker, who was unveiled as the 13th Time Lord in July past year, said that "it's about time" more diverse casts were shown on TV.
