Latest Doctor Who San Diego Comic-Con Trailer
First, let's get one thing straight. The Doctor played by Jodie Whittaker is a Time Lady. I keep reading news articles and even those articles being published in Great Britain keep referring to the Thirteenth Doctor as a "Time Lord". Time Lords are male. Time Ladies are female. It's been that way since at least the Tom Baker era if not earlier. Someone needs to clamp down on this. At least nerdist.com gets it right.
Anyway, let's move on from my new pet peeve. A few days ago at the San Diego Comic-Con the latest Doctor Who trailer was revealed. I first heard about this Comic-Con trailer in June from a WhatTravisSays YouTube video. Apparently there was some controversy in showing a Doctor Who trailer in America first. I suspect Donald Trump is a closet Doctor Who fan and the BBC had to chose between showing the trailer first in the UK or keeping a closet Doctor Who fan from launching nukes. I think if that's the case the BBC made the right call.
I think the "new best friends" line is in the trailer simply to troll the fans who have been upset that the Doctor has regenerated into a female form. I believe the three new characters will still be referred to as "companions" like before in the new series.
There is also currently a lot of speculation about the Thirteenth Doctor being stranded on Earth and people who want to believe that are using this latest Comic-Con trailer as proof. At this time I am not accepting that as proof because absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. How do we really know the TARDIS wasn't in the trailer? The TARDIS has many more rooms than the control room. How does anybody outside the BBC know whether or not the screencap from the trailer below isn't the Doctor in one of the many rooms of the TARDIS? There's no direct context to that short clip so we don't know where that location is.

Those are my thoughts about the latest Doctor Who trailer. If you want even more Doctor Who on steemit I recently found the @loosetooth "Tardis Chronicles". @loosetooth is starting to post reviews of each episode of Doctor Who starting with the classic 1963 episodes. Steemian Whovians might want to check that out.
