While we can't wait to see where (and when) we'll be going next year, we can't try and decipher what the season story might be from this teaser because it won't actually have one.

Whittaker revealed the iconic sonic screwdriver during the panel and held it up for everyone to see-which you can check out for yourself below.

The Broadchurch star was named as the first ever female Doctor previous year and since then the BBC has been embroiled in an unequal pay row after it was revealed that many women were being paid less than men for doing similar jobs. "I hope we as friends are people that young kids can look up to and think 'Oh, yeah, I want to do that one day'". This surprise trailer gives fan a tease of what's in store: epic-scale battles, clone trooper squad drama, and the return of Ahsoka Tano, apprentice to Anakin Skywalker. "My big message to you is that this year is the flawless jumping-on point for that person in your life who's never seen Doctor Who". "New faces, new worlds, new times".

Trump told CBS he was able to save $1.5 billion on the deal, although those savings couldn't be confirmed. Trump acknowledged in his interview with CBS that the plane would largely be for future presidents.

Doctor Who returns in the autumn for series 11, which will consist of a feature-length opener followed by nine 50-minute episodes.

The universe is calling, and Jodie Whittaker is here to answer.

"It was incredibly nervewracking since the reveal had happened", she said. "Sometimes within episodes other people's response is different because they're speaking to a woman, and that's interesting".

"When I got out my leg was bloody and I saw scratch marks - they were bite marks - but looked like scratches". Philip Pollina told NBC his daughter was waist deep in the water off Sailors Haven when she began panicking.

Later at the panel, she was asked if there was a single defining element of her Doctor. "And that's why this role will continue to be layered and fascinating to play". "The relationship between the three is lovely", Gill did say and added it will evolve over the 10 episodes of the new season. This marks the first time a woman has played the Doctor role, marking a new milestone for the popular show. Perhaps they will show up in season twelve or perhaps Chibnall is intentionally leading us astray. But showrunner Chris Chibnall and his producers say there "wasn't even a question" about picking a woman to replace Capaldi. But it does seem to suit her very well, from what little we've seen of it so far.

Following the release of the trailer, the BBC also debuted a new poster for Season 11, featuring a better look at the Doctor's new sonic screwdriver.
