New Doctor Who trailer to air 15/7/18

Football might not be coming home, but the TARDIS is on its way!

It’s been announced that the first official trailer for the new series of Doctor Who will air as part of BBC One’s World Cup Final broadcast this Sunday (July 15).

France v. Croatia will play out from 3.50pm – 6.35pm, but the smart money’s on a half-time broadcast, from around 4.45pm to 5pm.

Jodie Whittaker is the new Doctor, becoming the first female star to play the iconic sci-fi role in Doctor Who‘s 55-year history.

“I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey – It’s more than an honour to play the Doctor,” she said. “It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”

The 13th Doctor’s new friends are Yasmin (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole), and Graham (Bradley Walsh) – yes, we’ll be getting a full-fledged TARDIS team!

New showrunner Chris Chibnall apparently has a “five-year” plan for the series… and he won’t be playing it safe. “What the BBC was after was risk and boldness,” he said in June 2017. He’ll be joined on this journey by executive producer Matt Stevens (Misfits).

In a new interview withEntertainment Weekly, Whittaker said that the new series is “hopeful and fizzing with wonder,” while Chibnall described her Doctor as “warm”, “inclusive” and “energetic”.

Doctor Who is expected to return to BBC One in October with 10 new episodes. A Christmas special is expected to follow, though this is yet to be officially confirmed by the BBC.
