Finally! Our first full look at Doctor Who’s latest incarnation, Jodie Whittaker…

And we love her!

We simply have to take ourselves outside of the politics and ask… does it look like Doctor Who… does it feel like Doctor Who and… will we like the new Doctor and honestly, from what we’ve seen so far? Yes… yes.. yes.

The trailer gives us not only our first good look at Whittaker as The Doctor but also at Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill playing regular characters Ryan and Yasmin as well as the one and only Bradley Walsh as… well, we don’t know yet.

Check it out below and let us know your thoughts.

New image of The Doctor:

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….
