Start assembling your Twelfth Doctor cosplay: the TARDIS will soon land at San Diego Comic-Con.
BBC AMERICA has announced that Doctor Who is returning to the convention’s massive Hall H for a panel on Thursday, July 9, with star Peter Capaldi making his SDCC debut. Jenna Coleman (Clara), Michelle Gomez (Missy), lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, and executive producer Brian Minchin are set to join him onstage.
Ahead of his first time at the convention, Capaldi says, “Tales of San Diego Comic Con are told in awe on every set around the known fantasy/sci-fi production world. 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 panel will start the countdown to Season Nine of the critically acclaimed series, which will kick off this fall with a two-part premiere episode, “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar,” both penned by the Emmy-winning Moffat.
We’ll have more information on the panel as it becomes available.Read More
