The sneak peek shows the group exploring new worlds as Jodie says: "All of this is new to me".

Moffat's time, while exceptional in parts, had grown somewhat stale, and this really feels like a fresh start for the series, something echoed at San Diego Comic-Con.

Obviously, we are all very excited to see Broadchurch actress Jodie Whittaker take the wheel as the first ever female Doctor - a move new showrunner Chris Chibnall calls "long overdue" for the franchise.

Buzz has already begun swirling around the new season of the beloved British sci-fi show, and curious fans have been looking for more peeks at the new Doctor.

"It felt like the right thing to do for this Doctor", she says. "And that's interesting and that's why this role will be layered and fascinating to play".

The ten-episode series will air in fall of 2018, and we're totally sure that no one will have any complaints about a woman Doctor by then. Chibnall affirmed that this season is really meant for new fans.

The line had a fashion show last night, showing off all of their latest threads, and wouldn't you know it - someone came out wearing the coat of the new 13th Doctor.

BBC also recently released a few new images featuring Whittaker as the Doctor as well as her three new companions, Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yasmin (Mandip Gill), and Graham (Bradley Walsh). The Doctor is still very much The Doctor.

Asked by a Facebook fan which companion she'd ideally be traveling with in the new series (not that she has any complaints about her current company), Whittaker also had an answer long-time viewers will surely appreciate: Billie Piper's spunky series 1-2 companion Rose Tyler. As he said (and we all agree), "It was a no brainer", and it fit with canon: former showrunner Russel T. Davies apparently sent Chibnall a text noting a reference to changing genders during regeneration from the show's '70s incarnation.

Since she was cast as the new Doctor, the BBC has been subject to criticism over unequal pay after it was revealed many women were paid less than men for doing similar jobs.

He also spoke of how this Doctor Who writing team was a flawless mixture of "the British way of working and the American way". "You're dressing as the Doctor".
