A piece of very good news for all the fans of ‘Doctor Who’ which was received today at Comic-Con@home, was a panel presentation on the show. It was accompanied by the release of the season 13 trailer.
The panel of the comic-con featured Jodie Whittaker as the doctor, Yasmin Khan as Mandip Gill, and the very new companion John Bishop. He was announced at the end of the holiday special series. He has replaced the previous companions Ryan (Tosin Cole) and O’Brien (Bradley Walsh).
The trailer of the series also featured the first look at the guest star Jacob Anderson as Vinder. It picks up from the end of the series part that is “Revolution of the Daleks.
All the three megastars joined the showrunner and executive producer Chris Chibnall to preview this year’s storyline in the long-running sci-fi show. The series will be aired on BBC in America.
Bishop said in her statement: “If I could tell my younger self that one day I would be asked to step on board the TARDIS, I would never have believed it,”. He added, “It’s an absolute dream come true to be joining Doctor Who, and I couldn’t wish for better company than Jodie and Mandip.”
Currently “Doctor Who” is still in the stages of production for season 13, but we can expect its first shows to arrive sometime at the end of this year.
Different from previous seasons, this year Doctor Who will tell portray a singular story. It is because of the shooting schedule which was wrought by the challenges of the pandemic as acknowledged by Chibnall. The pandemic has also shortened the season to almost 8 episodes for season 13.
Chibnall said in her statement: “Before we started making it, there were times when we thought we were going to be unable to do the show under Covid conditions this year… there were two ways you could go,”. Chibnall added. ” You could go with the tiny little episodes in one room with no monsters or we could have thrown down the gauntlet and do the biggest story we have ever done. Talking about the storyline Chibnall said “We’re going to go to all kinds of different places, we’re going to have all kinds of characters and monsters, and it’s all going to be part of a bigger whole. It’s definitely the most ambitious thing we’ve done since we’ve been on the series.”
