BBC Announces ‘Doctor Who’ Panel for San Diego Comic-Con


BBC America has announced that Doctor Who will be returning to San Diego Comic-Con this July for a Hall H panel on Thursday, July 9. Following his record-breaking first season as the Doctor, Peter Capaldi will make his first ever appearance at Comic-Con with stars Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Michelle Gomez (Missy), lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat and executive producer Brian Minchin.

“Tales of San Diego Comic-Con are told in awe on every set around the known fantasy/sci-fi production world,” Capaldi said when asked about making his first Comic-Con appearance. “It’s become a fabled kingdom. One I am thrilled to find myself heading for. And to appear in the legendary Hall H, is a further twist to the cosplay and comic madness I may never recover from.”

The new season premieres this fall with a two-part episode, “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar,” written by Steven Moffat, produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Hettie Macdonald (Blink, the Hugo Award-winning Doctor Who episode).

We’ll keep you posted as more Comic-Con 2015 news surfaces, and on all things Doctor Who gets as the season premiere gets closer!
