Can you hear that? It’s the sound of Doctor Who fans all over the world revving up their engines for new inside information about the latest iteration of the iconic series.
After 10,000 years 54 years, the Doctor has finally regenerated into a woman. Oh sure, underneath the excitement of millions of fans, you can make out the buzzing of a small but obnoxious segment of the fandom that thinks women Time Lords can’t save the world, but forget them. Instead, check out these amazing new images from the BBC ahead of the Doctor Who panel at San Diego Comic-Con!

In the words of Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor: Brilliant.
The BBC has kept a tight lid on where and how the Doctor will be adventuring this season. But we do have a few hints. We know Mandip Gill will play Yasmin while BBC veteran Bradley Walsh will play Graham. Then there’s Tosin Cole as Ryan, but some Star Wars fans may recognize him as Lieutenant Bastian from The Force Awakens. We know from the teaser trailer that perhaps the Doctor is responsible for bringing these companions together. And….that’s about it.
Fortunately for everyone, the Doctor Who panel and all its reveals are tomorrow, July 19. Until then, break out your magnifying glasses and scour these images for any clues. Or at least inspiration for future cosplay. Personally, I can’t wait for Yasmin’s leather jacket to show up at Hot Topic in six months. Hint hint.
