And when we say excited we mean EXCITED, as in running-up-the-walls, crying-with-joy and creating custom gifs within 10 minutes excited, with Whovians around the world sharing their joy on social media at seeing Whittaker’s Time Lord in action for the first time since last Christmas.
#DoctorWho is the only show that gets be so excited I get tears of joy when I see a trailer that it's coming back!!!
While there was plenty of love for new companions Yasmin, Graham and Ryan it was unsurprisingly Whittaker who was singled out for the lion’s share of praise, with many fans itching to see more of her Doctor even though she only appeared in the teaser for a few seconds at the end.
This makes me happy! This is why I love being a Whovian, just one image like this is all you need to fall in love with the show, that smile, those eyes, Jodie sells adventure, this is The Doctor, and it's beautiful! I can not wait! This series is going to be amazing #doctorwhopic.twitter.com/hfHDVUUxUh
Of course, given that it was only a taster with no footage from the series itself, this teaser didn’t give too much away about what adventures we’d be seeing for this new Tardis team – but overall, fans were happy enough to get a brief glimpse into the new take on the Whoniverse, even without any juicy secrets.
Not sure what people were expecting from that #DoctorWho trailer but I thought it was ?. Apart from being *very* beautifully made it said ‘look, relatable people in normal life – then some spacey weirdness impinges’ which is WHAT YOU WANT. Plus, again, WALSH READING THE BEANO!
And after all, as many pointed out Doctor Who may yet release a full trailer during its San Diego Comic-con panel next week. And when that happens, well, we’re going to need a MUCH bigger scale for excitement levels. Our charts just don’t go that high yet.
