    Finally, we get to see the new star of "Doctor Who" in action in a teaser for Season 11.

    Well, Jodie Whittaker regenerates a pizza. And then smiles. That's about all fans could see in the World Cup-themed trailer that BBC America shared Sunday. Also in the short video: New characters played by Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill and Bradley Walsh appear to become the Doctor's new companions.

    Last November, BBC America shared an image of star Jodie Whittaker, the first woman to play the title character of the sci-fi show. Then in the "Doctor Who" Christmas special, Peter Capaldi's Doctor regenerated into the new Whittaker version.

    "Never be cruel, never be cowardly and never ever eat Pez," the outgoing Doctor announced. "Always try to be nice. And never fail to be kind. And you mustn't tell anyone your name."

    The new season of "Doctor Who" premieres this fall, when the new Doctor hopefully follows that advice.
