The first trailer of Doctor Who season 13 was released on Sunday, July 25 during a Comic-Con panel.
The trailer picks up from the end of the show’s special episode titled Revolution of the Daleks, which aired in January 2021. It shows Jodie Whittaker (Black Mirror) as the Thirteenth Doctor and Mandip Gill (The Flood) as Yasmin Khan.
John Bishop joins the cast as Dan Lewis, following the departure of Tosin Cole (The Souvenir) and Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK) from the show. Also featured in the trailer is guest star Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones) as Vinder.
According to Deadline, this season of Doctor Who will center on a singular story, mostly due to scheduling conflicts because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The eight-episode season is currently in production, with its first few episodes are expected to be released on the BBC channel in the latter part of 2021. A final premiere date has yet to be announced. – with reports from Angelica Burlaza/Rappler.com
