According to a press release on social media and the official BBC Doctor Who website HERE. Brian Minchin, Steven Moffat, Michelle Gomez(!), Jenna Coleman and Peter Capaldi are all headed to San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con International taking place 9-12 July.
Once again the Doctor Who panel will be in Hall H, but instead of the usual Sunday spot it will take place the first official day of the convention the 9th.
This will be Capaldi’s first trip to the convention and he had this to say:
‘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.’
Let’s hope he does recover because I’m sure after the convention they’ll be quickly heading back to Cardiff to finish filming of series 9.
