San Diego Comic Con looked a little bit different this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. A virtual 'Comic-Con@Home' meant that Doctor Who could still make an appearance with two brilliant panels.
Matt Smith's second series of Doctor Who is set for Blu-ray release as a limited edition steelbook.
Together the Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves in Sixties America, battling the invasion the world forgot, then journeying on the high seas of 1696 aboard a pirate ship to solve the mystery of the Siren.
In a bubble universe at the very edge of reality, the Doctor meets an old friend with a new face, and in a monastery on a remote island in the near future, an industrial accident takes on a terrible human shape.
And waiting for them, at the end of all this, is the battle of Demon’s Run, and the Doctor’s darkest hour. Can even the truth about River Song save the Time Lord’s soul? Only two things are certain. Silence will fall. And a good man is going to die…
For the first time EVER, three Doctors - David Tennant, Matt Smith and Jodie Whittaker - have united to chat about Doctor Who, their time playing The Doctor and to answer some quick-fire questions!

The Tenth Doctor and River Song are set to reunite for three new audio adventures with Big Finish.
Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor and River Song will, of course, feature David Tennant and Alex Kingston returning as their beloved characters, who were last seen together in Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead back in 2008, with special guest appearances by Peter Davison as The Fifth Doctor and Colin Baker as The Sixth Doctor.
The Tenth Doctor knows that River Song is a part of his future. A maddening, intriguing, but inevitable part. Their lives are becoming inextricably intertwined, but in these early days – for the Doctor at least – they must navigate their relationship without too many spoilers. Whatever her past, and the Doctor’s future, holds, River will make sure that he has fun untangling the mystery...
Rhodri Talfan Davies, Director of BBC Wales, has said that Doctor Who may be unable to start filming while social distancing guidelines are still in place.
Series 13, which was originally due to commence production in September 2020, may have to be postponed until the social distancing measures are eventually lifted and filming is considered to be safe for everyone involved.
“It’ll be down to social distancing,” Davies says. “A production like that, which at any point employs hundreds of people, freelance and staff, I don’t believe can be made to the current standard in a socially distanced environment. So it depends when you think social distancing is going to end.”
Davies went on to mention that Doctor Who may have to wait even longer if restrictions in Wales aren't lifted as soon as those in England, with production based primarily at BBC Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff Bay. The English regulations are set by the UK Government, whereas the Welsh Assembly Government set the guidelines for Wales.
“Obviously each production centre from those two countries is going to need to respond to the specific rules and regulations that each of the governments are introducing,” he added.
