The Ghost Monument | OFFICIAL TRAILER - Doctor Who

A new season of Doctor Who launched on Sunday, bringing forth the debut of Jodie Whittaker as the first woman to portray the iconic character.

The final result of all their brainstorming is the outfit that we saw at the end of episode 1 of season 11 of Doctor Who. It's about people trying their darndest. Fans of the reboot have thus far been robbed of this experience, and I hope that we can expect more ludicrous finales as the weeks roll by. The fact that these three appeared in all the promo material alongside Whittaker made it pretty obvious from the opening scene that something was going to happen to Grace. A "mashup of the old and the new". It took the edge off the episode for me, as I was constantly waiting for her demise, and the more I knew it was coming, the more disappointed I became. But perhaps more important is how much fun she is having with it.

With the dawning of a new era of Doctor Who, we've been given a premiere episode that had a lot of emotional weight to it. Now, I know that nothing's ever universally loved, so I've genuinely tried to find some less positive reactions, but I can't find anything too venomous at all. And just who are Angstrom and Epzo? She's delighted by the news of her new gender but barely gives it much consideration after the novelty wears off. "I'm the Doctor". Yes. ("Why are you calling me madam?").

In half a century of Doctor Who, it seemed the sci-fi show had created every possible kind of merchandise, from toy Tardises to dalek oven gloves. Beyond that, we've been told to expect new characters and new monsters, with no reliance on the Daleks this time. It was very much, I want to be able to do this and I want to be able to show you I can do it.

Collins: 'I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was' Ford's assailant
He led Trump's commission that investigated voter fraud - ultimately failing to uncover evidence to back the President's claims. Kavanaugh will replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy , long considered the crucial swing "fifth vote" on the Court.

You mean "braces", they tweeted. Under Jodie Whittaker's brisk, common-sensical guidance, the new Doctor got to be nerdy and weird, techy and charismatic, irritating and fascinating.

"Well, my relationship with it is I'm now a very new Whovian".

We were soon on familiar ground, as Whittaker's Doctor chased a mysterious, Predator-inspired alien through the streets of Sheffield. It's terrifying. Right now, I'm a stranger to myself. "But because Jodie's a friend and because [Broadchurch creator] Chris Chibnall, who now runs the show, is a friend, it was exciting on so many levels". They're off kilter, walking on baby legs as they discover the new aspects of themselves. "Because she's THE DOCTOR".
