Live Reports From Comic-Con, Start Tomorrow

Greetings, earthlings! I have traveled the universe, battling aliens and protecting the world — but returned to you just in-time to voyage to San Diego’s Convention Center. Why, you ask? To report back the latest, the greatest, and the just-plain unbelievable from the 40th Anniversary of Comic-Con! BBC America’s planning lots of exciting activities at this year’s fest, including star-filled panels, signings & screenings around some of our biggest shows, including Doctor Who, Torchwood, Being Human and The Mighty Boosh, so believe me, this’ll be a Con to remember.

But if it seems there will be a million galaxy miles between you and Comic-Con, not to worry. We’ll be covering the Fest like never before, with live blog postings on Anglophenia, insider photos and constant Twitter updates — it’ll be just like you’re there, believe me! (Or even better: on, there are no autograph-signing lines to wait in, and there’s never a Darth Vader helmet sitting in-front of you and blocking your view.)

So settle into your personal Torchwood Hub and stay tuned to’s Anglophenia, because trust me, you won’t want to miss this.

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
