BBC America has the first trailer for the upcoming 12th season of their hit long-running sci-fi series Doctor Who. Jodie Whittaker is back for the second time as the thirteenth doctor. In the trailer, we get a peek at the return of the Cybermen, along with some time traveling alien action. For some fans, season 11 wasn't one of the best for a variety of reasons, but there were mainly some complaints about the writing. Whatever the case may be, a lot of people are excited for the season 12 premiere next year.
The emotionless Cybermen are sporting a new rusted, battered look in the Doctor Who season 12 trailer. They are going to end up facing off with Jodie Whittaker and her Tardis team (Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole, and Bradley Walsh). The characters first showed up final serial of William Hartnell's First Doctor (The Tenth Planet) and they are fan-favorite characters. They appear to be a bit more menacing from how they were in the past, though they're only seen briefly in the trailer.
The Cybermen were depicted as human-like aliens from "Earth's sister planet Mondas, who began replacing parts of their bodies with cybernetics to survive in deep space." To maintain sanity, they started to remove emotions from their brains and began to find other members to do the same, often by force. The Cybermen have battled many doctors over the years and long-time fans will more than likely be excited to see that they will be back for Doctor Who season 12, which will premiere some time in 2020. No release date has been announced at this time.
Season 11, saw the new Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker, as she was joined by an all-new cast of characters in the hit BBC America series. These new characters include Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill, along with Sharon D Clarke. As for the aforementioned writing change, Chris Chibnall took over as head writer and executive producer from Steven Moffat for the series. This may explain why some fans were not very excited about the new direction. Plus, some fans were not into the idea of Whittaker taking on the part of the new Doctor. Regardless, the show is still a big hit for the BBC America and it will continue to be as long as they keep making new episodes.
Doctor Who began broadcasting on BBC America in 2005 and was created by Sydney Newman (The Avengers). The show is Executive Produced by Russell T. Davies (Torchwood), Julie Gardner (Torchwood), Steven Moffat (Sherlock), Phil Collinson (Coronation Street), Piers Wenger (How I Live Now), Beth Willis, Brian Minchin (Wizards vs. Aliens), Caroline Skinner (Our Girl), and Mal Young (Desperate Housewives).
