New DOCTOR WHO Series 11 Trailer Shows Who's in Charge

When people need help, the Doctor never refuses.

The second trailer for Doctor Who Series 11 has been released, giving fans another glimpse of what to expect when the BBC series returns early next month.

The new 60-second full trailer opens with a shot of an asteroid field, followed by a sped-up sunrise of twin suns on a planet with two moons.  This is followed by an overhead shot of a parked alien spacecraft, and the Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) emerging from a small sandstorm.

"I'm the Doctor," she says to someone off-camera.  "When people need help, I never refuse."

In a separate scene, the Doctor and her companions, Ryan Sinclair (Tosin Cole), Yasmin Khan (Mandip Gill) and Graham O'Brien (Bradley Walsh), are arguing about what to do next with an unidentified man.

"What do we do?" asks Yasmin.

"Why are you asking her?" asks the off-camera man.

"'Cause she's in charge, bro," replies Ryan.

"Says who?" asks the skeptical man.

"Says us," Yasmin, Ryan and Graham reply in unison.

In another scene, the Doctor tells her companions "Let's get a shift on!" just before they all start running and dodging laser weapon fire.

At that moment, the song "Glorious" by Macklemore featuring Skylar Grey begins to play as we're barraged by quick flashes of Graham pressing a detonator with his thumb and causing an explosion, the Doctor staggering through corridors that are sparking for some reason, Ryan opening a cabinet and being shocked by something, the Doctor and her companions silhouetted against an alien coastline, the Doctor wearing welding goggles, and the Doctor and her companions walking through a London park while the Doctor studies her Sonic Screwdriver.

Next, we see the Doctor, still wearing the Twelfth Doctor's shredded clothes, telling someone off-camera, "I'm just a traveler."  This is followed by glimpses of the Doctor entering a room where her companions and two other men are waiting, and the Doctor using her Sonic Screwdriver as Ryan and another young woman look on.  "Sometimes I see things need fixing, do what I can."

Then, we see the Doctor and some armed people being confronted at night by a giant black spider-like creature, followed by Ryan and Graham running from said creature.

This is followed by Yasmin kicking a tied-up bag of clothes or a small blanket down a corridor, the spaceship from earlier dropping out of warp in space, the Doctor watching as a strange mass of cables scuttles along above her, and finally, the Doctor in a bright white room, kissing her hand and waving goodbye to someone off-screen.
