Jodie and the cast were so happy at Comic Con in July and loved seeing all the amazing fans who were there to see them. I have been a fan of the show since I was young and will be tuning in today to see the new season!
First look trailer was shown today at San Diego Comic Con. Fans camped out for Hall H to be part of the first look at the new Doctor- Jodie Whitaker. I had a great time in the BBC Press room for the show. Jodie gave me a thumbs up when I told her how happy I was see her there. (Loved her in Broadchurch). BBC shared the video trailer below. enjoy!!
Exciting news for Doctor who fans! I’ve been watching the show since I was very young. Great to see a change in gender for the Doctor. Can’t wait for the new season. I loved Jodie on the show Broadchurch.
