Whittaker will be the first female incarnation of Doctor Who as she replaces Peter Capaldi, who portrayed the 12th version of the titular Time Lord.

Season 11, in addition to Whittaker, also has a a new showrunner in Chris Chibnall who is stepping in for Peter Moffat. Whittaker will be joined by new companions portrayed by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill.

A teaser trailer released in July during the San Diego Comic-Con featured Whittaker speaking with her new friends. "New faces. New worlds. New times. So, if I asked really, really nicely, would you be my new best friends? Right? This is going to be fun," she says in the clip.
