WATCH: Leaked clip of Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor gives us our first idea of how she’ll sound and look… also, here’s her new Sonic Screwdriver!

July 1st, 2018 by Marc Comments

We have some cool details and looks at the new Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, ahead of her first appearance in Doctor Who later this year.

A scene from the first episode has leaked online and we have embedded a video below which breaks down the leaks including giving you a look at it and the Doctor’s new Yorkshire accent – Whittaker’s own accent – which many believed she would not be able to keep.

Rumour is that in the first episode The Doctor will have lost the TARDIS and will be trying to recover it and will have to construct her new Sonic Screwdriver from scratch.

Oh, it looks like this (continues after pics):

All in all, we think the new Doctor sounds like she’s going to be a lot of fun and it’s clear from the clip that the new series will be trying to set itself apart from what has gone before in every way Doctor Who can.

Will it succeed? Watch the video below and let us know your thoughts… and what do you think of the new Sonic?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
