The production of the new season of Doctor Who has been pretty tight-lipped, with no footage released of new Doctor Jodie Whittaker. However, thanks to the power of the internet you can now see a minute of Whittaker’s first episode. And it’s definitely worth checking out. The scene, which clearly takes place soon after her regeneration, shows Whittaker’s 13th Doctor on a train dealing with some kind of mystery in addition to trying to figure out exactly who she is.
Obviously since this is a post-regeneration scene it’s not a fully accurate predictor of how she’ll play the part but it does give us some ideas on the kind of tone and general feel incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall is going for. I do have to say I love it. I was already excited for the new season and the new Doctor, but damn if this hasn’t just me want it more.
In addition to the clip, a few stills managed to get out, showing the 13th Doctor’s new Sonic Screwdriver.
I’m not 100% sold on the new Sonic. I think it looks a little too much like a gun. But I have a feeling it could grow on me. Either way I’m sure I’ll end up buying the toy.
