According to BBC America, on February 20, Bbc Worldwide revealed the new logo for the highly anticipated 11th series of "Doctor Who" at an annual showcase event in Liverpool. Series 11 premiers in October 2018 and the newest installment will star Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor. This marks a new era for the franchise, as this is the first time a woman has been cast as The Doctor, and the new logo certainly shows it!

The new logo is revealed

The logo for "Doctor Who" has, over the years, become somewhat symbolic, and is recognized throughout the world.

BBC Worldwide hired Little Hawk, a creative agency, to create the newest logo. The agency worked with showrunner Chris Chibnall and executive producer Matt Strevens.

Chris Chibnall replaced Steven Moffat at the conclusion of series 10, who had worked closely with the show since its revival in 2005. He has also worked with the television show "Sherlock" since 2010.

When asked about the revamped logo, the executive creative director of "Doctor Who," Rafaela Perera, had this to say, according to BBC America: "The 'Doctor Who' logo and insignia are the quintessential signifier for the brand. Our aim was to create modern and elegant designs that were anchored in the things that we love most about 'Doctor Who.'"

Matthew Herbert created the sound for the animated logo, which features a 10-second animation with the TARDIS making its way through the logo.

What does series 11 have in store?

Series 11 will bring about many changes to the much-loved television show. Along with Peter Capaldi, it has been confirmed that Matt Nardole and Pearl Mackie will not be returning for series 11.

Instead, Peter Capaldi will be replaced by Jodie Whittaker, and the new companions will be played by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, who will play Graham, Ryan, and Yasmin, respectively.

Sharon D. Clarke is set to have a recurring role in this series, as well.

There has also been much speculation as to the plot of the series. At the conclusion of the tenth series in December 2017, fans saw Jodie Whittaker step out of the TARDIS of the Twelfth Doctor, who was played by Peter Capaldi. However, just as she was about to step back into the TARDIS and go on to her next destination, the TARDIS blew up, threw her out of doors and vanished, leaving the Thirteenth Doctor stranded on a modern-day Earth.

While this is certainly nothing new (the Doctor is no stranger to losing the TARDIS, although it always shows back up), some theories are circulating that something a little more unusual might occur. It is said if the rumors are to be believed, that the loss of the TARDIS may be a little more long-term than it has been in the past. There has been speculation that the Time Lord will be stuck on Earth for quite a bit before the TARDIS shows back up. Whatever really happens, I know that we're all excited to see what the eleventh series has in store.
