However, that hasn’t stopped fans getting excited for Jodie Whittaker’s debut series.
Following on from a teasing trailer shown during the World Cup final at the weekend, the BBC has released three exciting new pictures for the upcoming action.
The first image shows Jodie’s 13th Doctor fiddling with some levers on a technological board.
Graham (played by Bradley Walsh) Yasmin (Mandip Gill), and Ryan (Tosin Cole) can be seen peering over her shoulder with intrigue.
It’s currently unknown what she’s doing at the board but there is a golden light coming from it.
A second image shows the new TARDIS team turning around to look at something in the distance.
The cold woodland scene seems mysterious and the new gang are certainly concerned about what they are seeing.
Is this a sign of the first major monster on the horizon?
The final image shows the Doctor’s companions in a considerably hotter climate, surrounded by old junk.
Once more, they are staring into the distance, but it seems fans have an idea on what they’re looking at.
One shared on Twitter: “Can I just say, I LOVE this photo because you can just tell from the look on their faces that they’re all staring at The Doctor doing something incredibly crazy and stupid and making it actually work.”
Does this suggest the latest season of Doctor Who will be more fun-filled and silly as compared to Peter Capaldi’s decidedly more serious outgoing episodes?
This comes after the weekend’s teasing trailer which seemed to hint at a throwback to Doctors of past.
The first ever female Doctor was all smiles as she mysteriously appeared in the short clip.
At one point in the trailer, new companion Graham (played by Bradley Walsh) appeared with a newspaper in his hand.
But after a quick sleight of hand, the broadsheet is transformed into a copy of the 1981 Beano.
It all seems like just an innocent pun on regeneration, but look closer and Whovians have seen the edition before.
The exact same magazine was seen in Matt Smith’s episode, ‘The Rings of Akhaten’.
In it, the 11th Doctor perused the publication while spying on Dave Oswald (Michael Dixon).
Is Graham linked to the Oswald family in some way?
Doctor Who is expected to return to BBC One later this year.
