Every year the Hall H line at Comic Con draws crowds of thousands. As Comic Con gets more and more popular fans are lining up earlier and earlier to get a glimpse of their favorite movie and t.v. actors. We speculated in an earlier blog post that Doctor Who would be a very popular panel, and this is proving to be true. As I write this post, it’s 5:10pm Wednesday evening, the night before Hall H’s first panels, and there are already over 100 people camping outside Hall H!
A young couple was seen lining up yesterday, when asked what they were camped out for they replied “Doctor Who”. Since Doctor Who skipped Comic Con last year, fans of the longest running science fiction show are eager see the Twelfth Doctor, his Impossible Girl Companion and a few other special guests.
BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who returns to San Diego Comic-Con for a Hall H panel on Thursday, July 9. Following his record-breaking first season as the Doctor, 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. Doctor Who follows the adventures of the Doctor, the time traveler, who will continue to journey through all of space and time in epic adventures in the new season premiering this fall. Capaldi’s first season delivered BBC AMERICA its highest rated season ever and is available now on all digital platforms.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.”
