"It's about time!" That's the tagline of the latest trailer for the 11th season of Doctor Who, which will feature the first-ever female Doctor (played by Black Mirror's Jodie Whittaker). She showed up during last winter's Christmas special, where Peter Capaldi's Doctor took his last trip through time and space.
Check out the trailer below, which is set to Macklemore's "Glorious" (ft. Skylar Grey):
The new Doc isn't wasting any time in setting out on a whole new set of adventures that will see her helping people in need (she never refuses a call for help!). Moreover, the upcoming season will explore sexism and the long-overdue need for the show's central character to be portrayed by a woman.
As you see in the trailer, someone says, "Why are you asking her?", to which another character replies, "Because she's in charge, bro." When the original character asks, "Says who?" everyone else replies, "Says us!"
Doctor Who returns to the BBC on Sunday, Oct. 7.
