Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who‘s Day roundup, a collection of various items of Whovian jetsam that has washed up on the virtual shores of the internet over the past seven days or so.

And this week we begin with a mini-trawl of all the Doctor Who-related stuff and nonsense that happened at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Despite there being no official panel this year, the Doctor and his friends were more than ably represented in other places. Especially so, in the case of the naturally extrovert John Barrowman.

For starters, here he is at the BBC AMERICA booth:

…but Marvel’s Squirrel Girl too.

• Elsewhere, there was further cosplay of a Whovian nature….

• Although that is actually the real Steven Moffat:
