All we really know about Doctor Who season 11 is that for the first time ever, The Doctor is a woman, and the show will be born from a giant bucket of man-babies tears because of this.

This is not the first time the Doctor has traveled with what amounts to a small posse of companions. So since you're about to rewatch this teaser 10 more times, join me as we break down the Easter eggs in the Doctor Who teaser.

With many months to go before Doctor Who officially debuts the new gang on television, however, fans will have to subsist on the World Cup teaser and any other morsels that may pop up from its planned appearance at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con.

While we were treated to a whistlestop tour of new companions Graham, Ryan, and Yasmin, it was what was going on around Graham (Bradley Walsh) that was the most interesting of all.

But Mr Manullang said one of the conditions of the licence was that the reptiles did not disturb the community. Authorities said police were outnumbered and unable to stop the violence.

Oddly, the new teaser shows more of the Doctor's new companions than it does of the Doctor herself.

Jodie Whittaker was announced as the first female doctor in July past year. This is a direct reference to Matt Smith's very first episode in 2010, "The Eleventh Hour", when the newly-regenerated Doctor ate fish fingers dipped in custard much to the disgust of young Amy Pond. This includes stealing Ryan's food, giving Yasmin a fresh pizza and finally swapping Graham's newspaper for an issue of The Beano, the beloved British children's comic.

"What the BBC was after was risk and boldness", he said: "I had ideas about what I wanted to do with it". Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) takes over as showrunner and executive producer from Steven Moffat for the series. Prior to 2010, the new Doctor Who was hard for Americans to watch, and hadn't really exploded at various stateside comic-cons. Even Jodie's boots seem a little bit like Matt's.
