Whovians attending the San Diego Comic Con this month will be in for a real treat as the Comic-Con committee has confirmed that the cast and executive producers for ‘Doctor Who’ will indeed have a panel at this year’s con!
While it may have been assumed that ‘Doctor Who’ would be present, you can never be so sure so it was with great delight when the Sunday schedule for the convention revealed that the beloved Time Lord and his companions will make an appearance.
Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvil, Steven Moffat, and Caroline Skinner will all be there to answer your burning questions on Sunday! There will also be bringing with them footage from the new season of ‘Doctor Who!’ Here’s what to expect according to the Comic-Con site:
12:30-1:30 BBC America’s Doctor Who— The Doctor and the Ponds land in San Diego. BBC America’s Doctor Who stars Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill join award-winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock) and award-winning executive producer Caroline Skinner (The Fades) for a Comic-Con panel and Q&A. As fans eagerly await the new season’s premiere, BBC America is making sure Steven Moffat brings new footage to reveal on the big screens in Hall H. Ahead of the new season, BBC America will premiere new Doctor Who specials-The Science of Doctor Who, The Women of Doctor Who, The Timey-Wimey Stuff of Doctor Who, and The Destinations of Doctor Who-as part of the Supernatural Saturday programming block starting Saturday, August 4 at 9pm/8c. For those new to Who, the previous two seasons from Steven Moffat are available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download.
I’m sure the BBC and Moffat are keeping a lock on new companion Jenna Louse Coleman and as much as I’d love to see her as a special surprise guest, I highly doubt that will happen.
So fellow Whovians, how many of you will be joining me in Hall H on Sunday, July 15th?
