The trailer, which premiered in a prime slot -- on BBC One, during the halftime intermission of the F.A. Cup quarterfinal soccer match -- includes some footage from the previous Series 10 trailer -- in particular, a scene in which new companion Bill (Pearl Mackie) compares the Tardis' console room, somewhat unceremoniously, to a "kitchen."

The scene is then followed by a succession of images from the series' first few episodes featuring futuristic space stations, the surface of Mars, robots that speak emoji, human-Daleks, Dalek-Daleks and an adventure that takes place in 1814.

For hardened Whovians, there are also glimpses of some new-look Ice Warriors, some old-look Cybermen and what looks to be a classic sonic screwdriver of a design not seen on the show since its revival in 2005.

The minute-long teaser ends with the banner "A Time for Heroes," a phrase that was also included as a hashtag on the show's Twitter feed and that seems to consciously evoke the over-the-top style and scale of 1980s Hollywood trailers.

Meanwhile, the Official Doctor Who website revealed that the show's tenth series, the last to star Peter Capaldi as the Time Lord, kicks off with an episode entitled "The Pilot."
