Doctor Who: new hints as to what to expect in series 11

Jodie Whittaker - Doctor Who

Mild spoilers ahead for Doctor Who series 11.

The BBC is revealing more and more about Doctor Who series 11 this week, as it prepares to showcase footage from Jodie Whittaker’s upcoming first run in the show at San Diego Comic-Con.

The Who panel is set for Thursday, and ahead of that, the new issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine has given some fresh information on the show.

Jodie Whittaker has revealed, for instance, that the moment her Doctor was introduced at the end of Twice Upon A Time was the TARDIS actually rejecting her! It kicked her out of her own TARDIS.

Furthermore, her Doctor is described as “excitable and ebullient”, and Whittaker says of the series that “I think the big theme is hope”. We’ll wait to see how that is played out across the series’ ten episodes.

As for Bradley Walsh’s Graham, he’s described as a “regular bloke” who “gets taken away on this journey”.

More details are expected to land before the end of the week. We’ll keep you posted…
