Whittaker rules out Doctor who gender pay gap issue

Well, besides a glimpse of the Doctor's new sonic screwdriver, there were a few teases with a short video of the new season. The most noticeable thing, for one, is Whittaker's beaming smile and her thick Northern England, Yorkshire accent.

She uttered a quiet "brilliant" before her spaceship, the TARDIS, started to explode, throwing her out the doors and plummeting towards the ground. She says everything is new: New worlds.

You're right, Doctor-this is gonna be fun. Using a ship called a TARDIS (which resembles a British police box), the Doctor travels through space and time, usually accompanied by one or more human companions.

The new trailer gives fans its first real taste of Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, along with new companions Graham (Bradley Walsh), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Ryan (Tosin Cole). Also joining the series in a returning role is Sharon D Clarke. "I think there's a lot of new things this year".

She told thePress Association: "As people in the industry, as a woman in the industry, to not be aware of it [the gender pay row] would be naive but it hasn't been a part of this show".

"It's 10 standalone episodes, there's no two-parters or anything like that", Chibnall, who became another new aspect of Doctor Who after being tapped as showrunner following Steven Moffat's departure, revealed.

"If you've never seen Doctor Who you are in for an absolute treat", Chibnall says.

At the tail end of its Doctor Who presentation at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, the BBC dropped the official trailer for the series' 11th season, which stars Whittaker as the Thirteenth (but first female) Doctor.

"But some family members may be behind the sofa", he saysWhen can I watch? The first episode will air in October.

Set to premiere in fall 2018, the series will feature actress Jodie Whittaker in the title role, the first woman to play the role of The Doctor.
