Published

on

Specialist Who held today pre-taped Comic-Con At Home board, and keeping in mind that no one tended to the reports about star Jodie Whittaker possibly leaving the show after this season—a move that, assuming true, would follow a point of reference set by the last two stars, since this would be Whittaker’s third season and both Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi left after three—the specialists delivered an exceptionally short new teaser and share a new casting declaration.

Concerning the trailer, there’s very little to say about it since it’s actual short, however it has that exemplary zippy Doctor Who trailer energy with no ominous foreshadowing about The Doctor using up all available time or responding in due order regarding whatever grandiose sins she has submitted against the Daleks or the Sontarans or the Cybermen, so if Doctor 13 is in transit out, it presumably wouldn’t occur until the current year’s Christmas uncommon/Holiday exceptional/New Year’s Eve unique in any case. On the other hand, showrunner Chris Chibnall prodded during the board that, instead of doing rambling beast of-the-week stories like Doctor Who has ordinarily done since the BBC launched this recovery, this season will be committed to one continuous storyline.
