Time Lording it up. Doctor Who returns in new trailer

Time Lording it up. Doctor Who returns in new trailer

The first footage to feature that trio was released Sunday by the BBC during the World Cup final, and it shows the threesome's respective "timey wimey"-ness seemingly being affected by Whittaker's two-hearted alien, who appears at the end". Maybe. Was the drop-off in ratings and popularity more due to fan backlash against showrunner Steven Moffat? In the promo, three unsuspecting citizens (Tosin Cole as Ryan, Mandip Gill as Yasmin, and Bradley Walsh as Graham, Doctor Who's new companions) spot a mysterious being who marginally improves each of their lives when it walks past.

It starts with Ryan sitting at a diner with a spoonful of beans. Cue the streaky lightning and slow-mo action shot, and his paper has been swapped for a copy of The Beano.

Aside from a few wibbly-wobbly glances of the Time Lord (whose outfit was revealed late last year), audiences are no closer to knowing what's in store for the rebooted show.

Here's what we learned from the promotional trailer, which gave viewers a taste of what to expect when the show's new series airs later this year.

Stranger Things season 3 teases totally '80s Starcourt Mall
Netflix released this with the video, describing the attractions that come with Hawkins' new mall. If there's one thing that best defines the 1980s, it's the shopping mall.

Kansas City police kill suspect who shot three officers
The Star reported that worshippers at the United Believers Community Church were urged to leave the area as soon as possible. Police are actively searching for the perpetrator around the area of the shooting which was near 40 highway and Manchester.

Theresa May faces Commons showdown with Brexit rebels
In a BBC television interview on Sunday, Mrs May said she understood the strength of feelings driving the Brexit debate. I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

I know change is hard. Prior to 2010, the new Doctor Who was hard for Americans to watch, and hadn't really exploded at various stateside comic-cons. And, best of all, we have longtime fan and master of surprise Chris Chibnall leading it all. He also wrote eight episodes of spin-off Torchwood.

BBC and Federation Internationale de Football Association made a decision to take advantage of Whovians' collective excitement by releasing a brand-new promo this Sunday, when France and Croatia faced off in the most eagerly anticipated soccer standoff of 2018.

Keep an eye on for more Doctor Who news as the expected autumnal launch date nears.
