Doctor Who's new Doctor is seriously taking over San Diego Comic-Con. Not only did Jodie Whittaker take part in a wonderful panel yesterday (and star in a hilarious video about traveling to San Diego), she's also shown a huge enthusiasm for the franchise that she's about to become intertwined with forever. Just to top things off, she made a surprise appearance at the Her Universe fashion show last night. 

Her Universe is a clothing line created by someone else who had quite a big day yesterday — Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in the Star Wars animated shows. The fashion line is dedicated to creating unique genre-inspired clothing for women. 

The line had a fashion show last night, showing off all of their latest threads, and wouldn't you know it — someone came out wearing the coat of the new 13th Doctor. Not just anyone... it was Jodie Whittaker herself, having the time of her life. 

In case these photos from the official Doctor Who Twitter account don't do the moment justice, here's video that was tweeted by a fan that really gives you a sense of the moment: 

Was this planned, or was Ashley herself actually surprised? Just goes to show, you never know where the Doctor is going to show up next. We already said it, but it bears repeating: Jodie Whittaker is absolutely crushing her first Comic-Con.

Can't get to San Diego to see all of the "aw, brilliant" action in person? Worry not— we have you covered. Click here for SYFY WIRE's full coverage SDCC 2018, including up-to-the-minute news, exclusive interviews, and videos.
