The Doctor Who team weren’t present at last year’s San Diego Comic Con due to the World Tour – but with no World Tour this year, a Doctor Who panel with cast and crew has been confirmed for the convention in July!
The panel will take place on Thursday 9th July in the convention’s famous Hall H, and will see Peter Capaldi’s first appearance at Comic Con, alongside Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez, Steven Moffat and producer Brian Minchin. Speaking about his appearance, Capaldi said:
”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.”
It’s traditional for new footage to be shown at the convention – the last panel in 2013 saw the first screening of the 50th anniversary special trailer, so a trailer for Series 9 is unlikely; but considering that the aforementioned 50th trailer wasn’t released officially for months, it’s unclear if the footage screened at Comic Con will hit the internet soon after.
