Meet the new Tardis from Doctor Who
BBC has released a brand new featurette for the series 11 of Doctor Who. In the featurette, we get an up close and personal look into the design of the new Tardis. A lot of the elements that were added to the Tardis were added primarily because Jodie Whitaker is a very physical actor. As is revealed, instead of a keyboard for her to work on while operating the Tardis, there are buttons and pullies and levers that add to the physicality that Whitaker is taking on in her iteration of the Doctor.
The BBC also released a look at the brand new title credits that were introduced in last night’s episode. The credits are more scaled back in terms of design this time around and did you guys notice the lack of a Tardis? I did.
Jodie Whittaker will be joined by an all-new cast of characters in the series, including Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill. Also joining the series in a returning role is Sharon D Clarke. Chris Chibnall takes over as head writer and executive producer from Steven Moffat for the series.

Doctor Who follows the Doctor, an alien from a race called the Time Lords. They hail from the planet Gallifrey and have the ability to morph into new appearances when they’ve reached the end of their life. Originally, there were a certain amount of regenerations, but that was fiddled with on the writing end of things to further extend the series. I think that’s a tidy summation of how that happened anyway.
Doctor Who is executive produced by Russell T. Davies, Julie Gardner, Steven Moffat, Phil Collinson, Piers Wenger, Beth Willis, Brian Minchin, Caroline Skinner, and Mal Young.
New episodes of Doctor Who air every Sunday on BBC America. What do you think of the new title credits? And are you digging the new Tardis? I know I’m digging the new Tardis. Let us know in the comments below or tweet us at @LegionofLeia.
