Whittaker is the 13th Doctor of the science-fiction television series, which originally ran from 1963 to 1989 on BBC One and was revived in 2005. Alongside the new trailer above, the Thirteenth Doctor, who will be played by Jodie Whittaker, showed off what she'll be using during Season 11 to the packed hall.
In fact, nearly a year to the day of that announcement, the creative talent behind this fall's Doctor Who Season 11 gathered in San Diego Comic-Con's cavernous Hall H to discuss the series, as well as reveal the first teaser trailer for the new season.
There were glimpses of the Doctor with her new sonic screwdriver, some impressive-looking shots of alien worlds and the first look at the Doctor's new companions Yasmin, Ryan and Graham.
She also took a number of questions from the audience, explaining that other characters in the show will react to the fact the Doctor is now a woman.
"All of this is new to me", she says, presumably after just regenerating. And it's true; as the trailer emphasizes, pretty much everything is new. You can watch it here if you haven't seen it yet. "I'm very excited as a woman and as a mother of a daughter", she said.

Press PLAY above for some quality Doctor Who talk, and then hit the comments: What do you want to see in Season 11? .
She told thePress Association: "As people in the industry, as a woman in the industry, to not be aware of it [the gender pay row] would be naive but it hasn't been a part of this show". There is no role I have ever played that has, or will ever, come close to this. Ryan gets "caught in a insane situation" when he accompanies the Doctor, whom he "challenges". "This year is the flawless jumping on point for that person in your life who has never watched Doctor Who", he said.
Speaking in Radio Times, Chibnall emphasised how important it was that, "there's no barrier to entry. It's a big, inclusive, mainstream, accessible series". "So you won't see very much from the past, though there will be things here and there".
Aside from the new trailer and some oblique references - there will be few classic monsters such as Daleks this season, Chibnall said - there has been remarkable little revealed about the new season. It's her first time at Comic-Con, and she wanted to do it right.
"It's the Doctor you've known and loved, with just a fresh take". "The world was ready, the show was ready, the fans were ready". The producers have made a conscious effort to mirror the diversity onscreen with diversity behind the scenes, including writers of color, female guest writers, a mostly female editorial staff, and two female directors.
