Whovians across the globe gasped out loud as Peter Capaldi’s Doctor regenerated into Jodie Whittaker. For the first time in the Doctor Who history, the title character will be played by a female. As typical of most regenerations, the fans don’t get to see much of our new Doctor until the new season starts. Our last peek of the beloved timelord (timelady?) is seeing her plummeting to the ground far below.
Fear not! BBC America announced a special treat for US Whovians. The 13th Doctor and her cast are coming to San Diego Comic-Con next month. Slated for appearances are Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, Tosin Cole who plays Ryan, one of the Doctor’s companions, Mandip Gill, who plays Yasmin, another of the Doctor’s companions, Chris Chibnal, showrunner for the series, and Matt Stevens, executive producer for Doctor Who.
Rumor has it that the group will be doing a panel and formal introduction of series 11 with a possible new trailer in Hall H. We’re certain that this highly anticipated new season has everyone excited to learn more, or just get a glimpse of the Doctor. So, get your sonic screwdrivers and sonic glasses ready for an epic adventure. The San Diego Comic-Con runs July 19-22, 2018.
