The BBC has confirmed that the first trailer for the eleventh series of Doctor Who will launch during the World Cup final.
The sneak-peek comes ahead of the show’s full return in September, when Jodie Whittaker will take the reigns of the Tardis for the first time ever.
“The #WorldCup may not be coming home but the TARDIS is on its way. Tune into the World Cup Final this Sunday or come back here for the exclusive first look of new #DoctorWho and friends”, the BBC wrote on Twitter.
Whittaker’s stint as the Thirteenth Doctor was announced in July last year.

It was announced earlier this month that the BBC will be going to court in an attempt to find out who’s behind the leak of one Jodie Whittaker’s first scenes from the new series of Dr Who.
It has been revealed that the broadcaster has requested a subpoena, ordering the website Tapatalk to attend court after an unfinished rough cut of an early scene appeared online.
[We] will strive to protect our programme-makers, audiences and licence fee payers from any breaches of security – ensuring Doctor Who fans enjoy the final and fully completed version of the episode when it premieres,” a BBC spokesman
In March this year, Whittaker also spoke to NME about the effects of the #MeToo movement.
“I 100% want to support the movement, #MeToo and Time’s Up. We are a sisterhood”, she said,
“Thank fuck it’s [happening] at a time when people listen. This should be a turning point. This should never happen, not in our workplace [or] in any workplace anywhere.”
