It’s shaping up to be a very wobbly wobbly, timey wimey Comic-Con this year! Not only will Twelve himself, Peter Capaldi, be one of the very special guests on the Nerdist Podcast Live show this year, but our own Chris Hardwick is going to moderating the Doctor Who panel! Ready your attack eyebrows, folks!
Yes, the Doctor is making his triumphant return to the hallowed halls of Hall H after taking last summer off for Doctor Who: The World Tour, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see what’s up next. And while we’ve seen the Doctor at SDCC before, this is the first time we’ll be seeing Capaldi (!), who will be joined by his companion Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Michelle Gomez (Missy), lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, and executive producer Brian Minchin. The Who team will — with any luck — give us some serious dirt on the season premiere, a two-part episodic extravaganza, “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witches Familiar.” Also, to sweeten the pot, Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams has a guest spot this season, so fingers crossed we get some details on THAT.
So make sure you’re in line for this bit of Whovian business — it’s sure to be bigger on the inside of Hall H on Thursday July 9, 2015 2:15pm – 3:15pm.
What do you hope the Doctor Who cast discusses with Chris Hardwick? How many panels can one man host?! And when are we getting another cameo from Stormageddon’s dad, James Corden? Let us know your time travel hopes and dreams in the comments below. Allons-y!
