Peter Capaldi says he is “thrilled” to be making his inaugural appearance at the “fabled kingdom” of San Diego Comic-Con following the announcement that a Doctor Who panel will form part of this year’s annual convention.
Alongside Capaldi in the prestigious Hall H will be Jenna Coleman, aka the Doctor’s companion Clara, Michelle Gomez, who plays the Time Lord’s arch-enemy Missy, showrunner Steven Moffat and executive producer Brian Minchin.
“Tales of San Diego Comic-Con are told in awe on every set around the known fantasy/sci-fi production world,” said Capaldi. “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 Doctor Who session will take place on Thursday 9 July, the opening day of the four-day US event.
