Doctor Who Promo Injects World Cup Finals With Timey-Wimey Energy

Jodie Whittaker

Jodie Whittaker

We've known about Jodie Whittaker's trailblazing role as BBC's Thirteenth (and first female) Doctor Who for about a year, but the excitement still hasn't worn off-especially now that Doctor Who Season 11 is just around the corner.

In a sense, these visual cues seem to be saying one thing loud and clear: if you stopped watching Doctor Who in 2013, that's okay, because this new season will basically pick up right where the vibe of that version of the show left off.

"They've got the makings of a really strong team", said Ferdinand, with fans getting their introduction to Whitaker's new Doctor Who co-stars, Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill and Bradley Walsh. "Doctor Who Coming Fall 2018".

There's still no revelation yet of when the new series will air - either in the United Kingdom or here in New Zealand. We'll see how this dynamic works for Whittaker's Thirteenth Doctor. But suddenly time freezes, and we see the Doctor glide by, dipping what looks to be a fish stick into the custard on his plate. And Jubilee Pizza has appeared in the Doctor Who-verse before, showing up on a pizza box in the Season 1 episode "Dalek".

The 35-year-old actress, who starred in Broadchurch as Danny Latimer's grieving mother, was unveiled as something of a surprise choice to play the 13th Doctor in the long-running British sci-fi series Doctor Who in July during the Wimbledon final. Bradley Walsh's Graham is reading a newspaper inside a diner, but after the Doctor enters and leaves a swirl of temporal energy in her wake, he finds that he's holding The Beano 1981 Summer Special - the very same issue that the Eleventh Doctor was reading in the season 7 episode "The Rings of Akhaten".

Tendrils of light weave through the characters, as the Doctor dips a sausage in the yolk of Ryan's egg, bringing fresh pizza to Yasmin's gathering of her friends, and The Beano to Graham, instead of his paper.
