The first teaser trailer for Jodie Whittaker’s new series of Doctor Who has just arrived, and while it’s still sinking in it’s fair to say that a lot of fans are very excited by it.
- Doctor Who: Everything we know about Jodie Whittaker’s new Doctor

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.

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!

Honestly this is such a good teaser. It doesn't shows a lot but it introduces our companions and the 13th Doctor. I cannot wait for the SDCC trailer and Series 11.#DoctorWho #DoctorWhoTrailer #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/P7pXO9A1Fl

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.
Doctor Who returns to BBC1 this autumn
