Chris Hardwick will moderate the event, which will also feature two other new cast members
Jodie Whittaker has spent the first part of 2018 traveling to as-yet-unrevealed destinations across space and time, playing the first female lead of Doctor Who. But EW can exclusively reveal that next month, the actress will be alighting in San Diego to appear on a panel for the beloved science-fiction show at this year’s Comic-Con. It will be the first time Whittaker has appeared at the event.
She will be joined by fellow new Doctor Who cast members Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, showrunner Chris Chibnall, and executive producer Matt Strevens. The panel will be hosted by Chris Hardwick.
Whittaker made her debut as the so-called Thirteenth Doctor on last year’s special Christmas episode of Doctor Who. The new season will premiere this fall on BBC America.
