BBC Worldwide and BBC America have announced that San Diego Comic-Con will feature a Doctor Who panel in July. Peter Capaldi will make his first ever appearance at Comic-Con with stars Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Michelle Gomez (Missy), lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat and executive producer Brian Minchin.
Capaldi’s first season delivered BBC America its highest rated season ever and is available now on all digital platforms in the US. Peter Capaldi on making his first Comic-Con appearance:
“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 new season premieres with a two-part episode, The Magician’s Apprentice and The Witch’s Familiar, written by Steven Moffat, produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Hettie Macdonald (Blink).
Doctor Who returns to San Diego Comic-Con for a Hall H panel on Thursday, July 9.
