A new teaser trailer for the upcoming Doctor Who season 13 sees The Doctor hack into the BBC’s Saturday night broadcast, asking “Can you hear me?”
A brand-new teaser for Doctor Who season 13 was broadcast on Saturday night on BBC One. Doctor Who is returning for a reduced thirteenth season of just six episodes later this year. The season will be Jodie Whittaker’s third and final outing as the thirteenth incarnation of The Doctor, as she is set to exit the sci-fi series in 2022 after a trio of specials. Current showrunner Chris Chibnall will also be leaving the show in 2022 as it was recently announced that Russell T. Davies, who originally pioneered the revival of Doctor Who in 2005, will be replacing him for the 60th anniversary and beyond.
The first trailer for Doctor Who season 13 was shown at SDCC 2021, revealing that the season will be unique in that it will focus on one continual story instead of the show’s traditional monster-of-the-week format. The upcoming season will see the return of Whittaker and companion Yaz (Mandip Gill), and will also introduce new character Dan, played by stand-up comedian John Bishop. Game Of Thrones’ Jacob Anderson is also confirmed to be playing a recurring character called Vinder.
