Doctor Who – Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill to bid farewell at Comic-Con

The departing Ponds will be joined on the Doctor Who panel by Matt Smith, Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner

Amy Pond and Rory Williams will bid farewell to American Doctor Who fans at the 2012 Comic-Con later this month.


The final schedule for the eclectic cult convention in San Diego confirms speculation that a Doctor Who panel will feature, with departing actors Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill joining eleventh Doctor Matt Smith and executive producers Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner for a Q&A with fans.

New footage of the upcoming seventh series will also debut during the session, which takes place on Sunday 15 July (12:30pm San Diego time).


Gillan and Darvill have already filmed their final episodes of Doctor Who, set to air this autumn and described by Moffat as “heartbreaking” and Gillan as “emotional”. Matt Smith’s Doctor will meet a new companion in the form of Jenna-Louise Coleman in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.
