It’s 40-seconds of secrets, surprises and sonic screwdrivers – and unsurprisingly, fans were loving it.

The new Doctor Who trailer is brilliant. Completely enticing, yet gives barely anything away. Loved it. #doctorwho

I case you’re wondering, yes, I’m ridiculously excited about the trailer and everything coming out of SDCC ???????????????? #DoctorWho

Yeah, I'm just going to keep watching the Doctor Who trailer until it stops making the back of my neck tingle.

Is it just me but I'm getting 5th Doctor / Peter Davison vibes from the 13th Doctor trailer? The way she needs her companions to help with her new regeneration? Either way I'm excited. Can't wait! #DoctorWho

I very much enjoyed the #DoctorWho trailer. I think Jodie’s going to be grand

Although not everyone was so won over:
Hmm… I'll be honest I'm unconvinced by the new #DoctorWho trailer. But tbf I think I've said that pretty much every series since it came back and have always been pleasantly surprised.

For me, that #DoctorWho trailer wasn’t great. I’m not going to make any assumptions about the series or Jodie based on 30 seconds but it was a poor trailer…
