Just a few days over a year after Jodie Whittaker was first revealed as the new lead of the longrunning BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who, we finally have our first full look at what's in store for the Thirteenth Doctor.

Fresh off her Hall H debut for the Doctor Who panel, new series star Jodie Whittaker made a surprise appearance at the Her Universe Fashion Show on Thursday night.

Jodie also echoed that the season's inclusivity is a great place for new Doctor Who fans to start, especially men and women who typically haven't seen themselves reflected in past seasons of Doctor Who.

So we were excited, but there was still an expectation, a hope, for something more. Our job is, Where does the show go next.

"My first two days shooting, I was in somebody else's costume", Whittaker recalls. "Because we are, and we want you all on our journey with us".

The new trailer does not reveal much in terms of narrative, with couple of shots of unknown spaces and mysterious landscapes in view, which she explores with the three.




"To me, the Doctor is a pillar of hope striving for brightness and inclusion", she responded, a theme that Chibnall picked up on.

One thing that is heavily emphasized both in the press room and main panel is the commitment to 'newness'. But anyone could and should be able to channel that madness if they look as comfortable holding a new sonic screwdriver as Whittaker does. You can watch it here if you haven't seen it yet.

For a show that's been on since 1963, it was a moment many, many fans have been waiting for-as the hordes of people camped overnight to meet the 13th Doctor would indicate. "Any age, any gender, anyone can wear it!" she said, to applause from the crowd. "And that's interesting and that's why this role will be layered and fascinating to play".

Instead, the focus is on Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Supergirl, The Walking Dead and dozens of other television titles.

The internet's had a year to get used to the idea of Whittaker as the Doctor. "There is no barrier to entry this year. It's a big, inclusive, mainstream, accessible series". It's also a casting decision that will mean a lot to the show's incredibly passionate fan base, and has nothing to do with being a gimmick. "If she wasn't right, they would have said something". The process, known as regeneration, is always an exciting time for fans as one actor retires the beloved role, and another takes up the mantle.
