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.
