Jodie Whittaker may be the first female Doctor, but she won’t be doing it all by her lonesome. The BBC has announced three new cast members for the upcoming season, including a man widely expected to be the Doctor’s Companion.

In a press release, BBC announced that Bradley Walsh (playing Graham), Tosin Cole (playing Ryan) and Mandip Gill (playing Yasmin) will line up alongside Whittaker as the new regular cast. There was no official confirmation, but Walsh is expected to be the new Companion.

Meanwhile, the new series with the 13th Doctor will be a ten week run of fifty minute episodes in autumn 2018, kicking off with a feature length hour for the opening launch.

Fans can catch the Doctor Who Christmas Special: Twice Upon A Time this Christmas, when it premieres on BBC First (StarHub ch 522) and BBC Player, express from the UK telecast. In Singapore and Malaysia, BBC Player is available as an app for both Apple and Android users, and on www.bbcplayer.com.
