Jodie Whittaker to make her Doctor Who debut at San Diego Comic Con
The publicity machine for Doctor Who season 11 is starting to gain momentum and now the BBC has confirmed that the cast for the new series will make their first-ever panel appearance at this year's San Diego Comic Con
Here's the official press release:
Doctor Who will continue bringing the Whovians to Comic-Con International: San Diego this year, with a panel introducing the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker (Broadchurch). Marking a new era for the legendary Time Lord, Whittaker will be joined on the panel by two of her Doctor Who co-stars, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, who play Ryan and Yasmin, as well as award-winning series showrunner Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) and executive producer Matt Strevens (An Adventure In Space And Time).
The panel will be moderated by host extraordinaire and legendary Doctor Who fan, comedian Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead, Talking with Chris Hardwick). With this year’s highly-anticipated season packed full of action, adventure, humor and emotion, the panel will be the cast’s first-ever panel appearance ahead of Doctor Who premiering this fall on BBC AMERICA.
In 2011, BBCA’s Doctor Who was part of the first-ever slate of TV shows to gather with fans in Hall H, when Comic-Con presented a TV line-up in the iconic venue.
The BBC recently confrmed that all 10 series of Doctor Who since its 2005 (and its specials) are now available on BBC iPlayer and a new trailer is expected soon. More news as we have it.
