First trailer released for Doctor Who series 11

Doctor Who made it's San Diego Comic Con debut today and with it the BBC has released the first trailer for series 11.

After the brief glimpse of the three companies seen in last Saturday's teaser during the World Cup final, this is our first look at what Chris Chibnall's Doctor Who will look like. It's also our first time seeing Jodie Whittaker's Doctor in action too.

Meanwhile, new showrunner Chris Chibnall has been talking to Digital Spy at SDCC, where he revealed that series 11 will feature 10 separate stories. That means no two-parters for this run.

"It's 10 standalone episodes, there's no two-parters or anything like that. What we want is for people to feel like we've got the range and variety of Doctor Who this year. So if you've never seen it before, you're gonna fall in love with it, and if you have seen it, you're gonna get those things that you love about the show across the 10 episodes.

"It's a continuation. It's like in the same way that [Jon Pertwee's 1970 debut] 'Spearhead from Space' is a continuation of [Patrick Troughton's 1969 swansong] 'The War Games' – it's something different, but exactly the same.

"It's really important that there's no barrier to entry for new audiences. But if you're a Doctor Who fan, all the things you love about Doctor Who are in there, I think."

Chibnall also confirmed to Digital Spy that the new series would adopt the long-rumoured 'writers room format too.

Doctor Who will return this Autumn.
