Will the new Doctor in Doctor Who address the trolls who negatively reacted to her being cast as the first woman in the role? The show had its panel at San Diego's Comic-Con on Thursday, and now the new, expanded trailer has arrived.

The new faces are not only in front of the camera; Broadchurch executive-producer Chris Chibnall will re-team with Whittaker as he steps into the Doctor Who showrunner's chair, taking over for Steven Moffat.

Doctor Who season 11 is due to air later this year. When she revealed it was actually the Doctor herself, the crowd went wild.

Whittaker described her first day on set, filming The Doctor regenerating from Peter Capaldi's incarnation to hers, as "incredibly nerve-racking".

"The thing about this role, which is why it is so wonderful for any actor to play the role, is that essentially gender is irrelevant, and that's completely liberating", Whittaker said.

Appearing before some 6,000 fans at San Diego's annual Comic-Con pop culture gathering, Whittaker said playing the role of the extraterrestrial being who explores the universe in the time machine and spacecraft known as the Tardis was "really liberating".

There's rarely been a better, more exciting time to be, or to become, a Doctor Who fan. "I think audiences are really going to fall in love with her this year".

Since she was cast as the new Doctor, the BBC has been subject to criticism over unequal pay after it was revealed many women were paid less than men for doing similar jobs.

The long-running series centres on an extraterrestrial being called "the Doctor", a Time Lord who can travel through space and time to fight enemies and help save civilisations.

But Daleks or not, this upcoming season may be a shot in the arm for the series, a refreshing update that brings something different but keeps the two hearts and the legacy of Doctor Who alive. It's an emotional moment for those who finally feel they are represented in a role that has meant so much to them.
