"The fact we get on is a bit of a miracle because we're so bloody different", she says. The result is something that reflects the eccentricity of the earlier Doctors, while looking distinctive alongside the more tight-fitted looks of many female sci-fi protagonists.

Judging by the sheer noise in Hall H, fans are ready.

"We have 10 standalone stories, and lots of new characters for you to fall in love with", he added. New Doctor, new companions, new worlds, new monsters. It was littered with tents, sleeping bags, and chairs filled with long time Whovians who were making new friends, sleeping, playing games and discussing all things nerdy-but mostly anxious for the new era. Gill described Yaz as "completely in awe of the Doctor". The main focus of the trailer were Doctor Who's three companions.

But while fans have certainly noticed the shiny new look and feel, don't worry about Doctor Who losing its authentic touch.

The series' official Twitter account recently debuted two new posters, which showcase what fans can expect in Season 11. Following the clip that aired during Sunday's World Cup final, Doctor Who enthusiasts are getting a look at a second promo clip that reveals way more of Jodie Whittaker's personality as the new Doctor. "I want you guys to all be talking about it at the same time". It matters that the Doctor is a woman, right now. "That's what happened really - she just nailed it".

"Your heroes don't have to tick the same box".

Meanwhile, Whittaker is happy to note again that the gender of who plays the Doctor is irrelevant. "And that's interesting, and that's why this role will continue to be layered and fascinating to play".

"You just are [a woman] and it's a [point of view]", she said. "I really love television when it's a communal experience".

Diversity is also something that's important to the creators offscreen. Chris Chibnall is heading the series as co-producer and head writer for the series.

With the camera on her, she then adds: "This is going to be fun". "Get with the times and crack on".

"We're doing lots, but our plan across time is to do lots more". I can't wait for people to see how the Doctor acquires it!' It's an emotional moment for those who finally feel they are represented in a role that has meant so much to them.

Whittaker summed it up, "Like Tosin said, it's 2018; women shouldn't be a genre".
