Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who‘s Day roundup, a cosmic rallying point for all manner of Whovian news and fan endeavors from the last week or so across the web.
And this week has been exceptionally busy, starting with the visit to New York Comic Con by Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, Steven Moffat, Matt Lucas and Brian Minchin to discuss the Doctor Who Christmas special (of which more in a moment) and Season 10.
You can see selected highlights of the Doctor Who panel here, with Peter Capaldi discussing a particularly formative confrontation with a Dalek:
