Hold on to your sonic screwdrivers, Doctor Who fans: incoming Time Lord Jodie Whittaker has materialised at San Diego Comic-Con 2018.


The first female Doctor will be joined by new series stars Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole and showrunner Chris Chibnall for a panel this Thursday 19th July at 11.45am (7.45pm UK time), meaning there’s plenty to be excited about.

But just to raise the anticipation even higher, Whittaker has been meeting some fans…

She’s even been spotted in Lego form…

And overall fans simply can’t handle the hype…

But what actually can we expect from the panel? Well, alongside the promise of all sorts of new announcements about the BBC sci-fi series, Whovians will hopefully enjoy new details about upcoming episodes from the new cast (minus Bradley Walsh, who isn’t attending).


And Who knows, we might even be treated to a new piece of footage or even an airdate. We’ve got our fingers crossed.
