First trailer to Doctor Who 2018 season, first glimpse of 13th Doctor and team

The last time the TARDIS crew had this many members was during the Peter Davidson era. The show writers always had a hard time getting things for each character to do. Hence, in Terminus they had Tegan and Turlough stuck in some air shafts below decks for most of one episode. Maybe there will be a similar issue in the coming season? But we're here to dissect the trailer, not reminisce over old times.
First scene - we see the young black man in the new TARDIS crew, in a cafe eating a dish with baked beans and some bread and ... if I were British I'd know the name of that, eh? Then there's the magic sound, and the magic lights swarming around him, and someone is eating off his plate, and there's rumbling in the background, he turns startled, etc ...
This happens quickly and you might easily miss this bit. But think about the arm in the second picture.
First, this arm is wearing a different jacket than he's wearing. Plus, that hand is holding his cell phone and therefore cannot be the hand that is dipping the whatever-that-is.
Second, it's clearly the same plate and same table because of the placement of everything.
Third, it happens just after the rattling and magic sound and whatnot starts.
Fourth, immediately after is a glimpse of Doctor #13 walking away.
Presumably Doctor #13 snarfed a bite off the guys plate?
Again - there is some rattling, magic sounds, magic lights, and a quick glimpse of someone walking
First, the same TV show is on in the background
Second, the Pizza was finished, and now it's there again
Third, for the first guy the sneaky presence took food, in this case the sneaky presence gave food? Taking from a guy but giving to a woman?
And again - rattling, magic sounds, magic lights, a quick glipse of someone walking,
First, this guy isn't eating anything
Second, this shop has the same feel as the first shop, and might be the same place.
Third, this guy is alone, just like the first guy, while the young woman was not alone. Is that a message in the show, guys are loners while gals hang out with each other?
Fourth, easily missed is the change of reading material. The Beano magazine is clearly not what he was reading before the magic sound and lights.
Fifth, in the background starting with the young lady and her friends is an announcer saying "They've got the makings of a really strong team, great energy, great flair...that's what people are talking about...and I'm excited to see what happens!" The voice sounds like Christopher Eccleston, and the face looks possibly like Christopher Eccleston, but it's very unlikely to get his cooperation for something like this.
If we had any doubts that the figure seen during the magic lights/sound/rattling was The Doctor, here it is. This is the same shop front as shown at the beginning of the trailer.
All three of the companions are from modern-day-earth-England. They missed an opportunity for some of them to be from other planets, or other times. In the
