Doctor Who series 11 San Diego Comic-Con panel is earlier than expected

BBC America has officially confirmed details of the upcoming Doctor Who panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con – and it’s not when we were expecting.

We assumed that Doctor Who would take one of the prime panel spots over the weekend of the show. As it happens, though, it’ll be taking place on Thursday July 19th, at 11.45am (US PT time).

As had been previously reported, Jodie Whittaker, Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill, Chris Chibnall and Matt Strevens are all on the panel.
