[USA], July 20 (ANI): The first trailer of the much anticipated new season of 'Doctor Who' starring Jodie Whittaker was unveiled at Comic-Con in San Diego.

The 40-seconds clip shows Whittaker's Time Lord meet up with her new companions - played by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill - and start her next adventure.

Whittaker, who is making history as the first woman to play the iconic Time Lord in 'Doctor Who', was joined by producers and fellow cast members in a Hall H panel on Thursday.

While talking about the diversity of the new cast, the 36-year-old said, "I was born in the '80s, and when I was growing up and you looked up to people in films and shows doing things I wanted to do - I didn't want to stand to the side giggling and clapping, I wanted to run about and jump about and do all those things - those people didn't really look like me."

"I hope we as friends are people that young kids can look up to and think 'Oh, yeah, I want to do that one day'" she added, as reported by Variety.

The new season, which is being helmed by 'Broadchurch' writer Chris Chibnall, is widely expected to be released in October. (ANI)
