In the video, the titular character appears to be flabbergasted as she says, ‘That’s impossible! Madame Ching, pirate queen?’ upon meeting a previously-unseen character.

When she puts her sidekicks forward as crewmembers, she is hilariously told that they ‘don’t stand a chance’ by one of Ching’s squad.

Later, Mandip tells The Doctor, ‘You’re like a kid sometimes,’ before she sarcastically replies, ‘Thanks!’ while shooting an seething expression. 

With the world ‘disrupted’ by something unknown, which has been unleashed by the protagonist’s latest pal, the gang must battle it out to save the universe.

Doctor Who producers recently hinted that the next Time Lord will be another woman.

Production notes for the next series of the BBC’s sci-fi show suggest a female will be starring again as It’s A Sin’s Lydia West is widely tipped to take over, The Mirror reported.

Current Time Lord Jodie’s role comes to an end this autumn with a regeneration episode after she became the first ever female Doctor in 2017.

Entertainment industry website Production Weekly lists the new episodes as: ‘A fantasy action saga of a mysterious alien time-traveller, Doctor Who, who picks up human companions, faces evil foes with little more than her wits and a sonic screwdriver and journeys throughout time and space in a police phone booth called the TARDIS.’

Jodie herself recently called for another female doctor to take over the role.

She told Radio 1’s Vick Hope and Jordan North: ‘If we had the power to choose I’m going to pick an actress who I think is really exciting and I think would be phenomenal, an actress called Lydia West. If I had the power!’

Lydia is bookmaker Coral’s favourite to replace Jodie at 3-1 odds, while Fisayo Akinade and Omari Douglas (both 5-1) are joint second favourites and Olly Alexander comes next in the betting at 6-1.

Jodie has said previously that she is leaving the coveted role this year because she feels it needs ‘new energy’ but the star also confessed that she isn’t sure if she is making the correct decision.

Jodie has said previously that she is leaving the coveted role this year because she feels it needs ‘new energy’ but the star also confessed that she isn’t sure if she is making the correct decision.

The actress admitted to Entertainment Weekly that it felt strange to feel sad because she had made the decision to leave.

She said: ‘It’s a really bizarre feeling, because it’s the best time I’ve ever had on a job, and I made the decision to leave it, so it’s a really strange thing to do to yourself.’

She went on: ‘It was a wonderfully-celebratory-slash-grief-ridden day that I could spend with the family that I’d made.

‘I suppose the best thing about it is that the episodes are still on. So until they’re off, I don’t have to really get my head around the fact that it’s not my part!’

Doctor Who: Legend Of The Sea Devils will premiere on BBC One on Sunday April 17.
