A promo clip for the upcoming season of the beloved British time travel show premiered at Sunday's Doctor Who Comic-Con panel. The trailer features Who veterans Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill, as well as new cast member John Bishop and guest star Jacob Anderson, who it was revealed on the panel will play a character named Vinder.

During the panel, Chibnall announced that the new season of Doctor Who will feature an overarching story. "The big thing that we're going to be doing this year is, it's all one story," said Chibnall. "So every episode is a chapter of a bigger story. So we've changed the shape of the series for this year."
