Moff, Matt & Jenna at San Diego Comic Con

The San Diego Comic Con is fast approaching with many of you already having bought your tickets; if you’re a Doctor Who fan in America then you’re going to want to as soon as you can (if they’re still available).


Sunday’s line up of guests and panels has been formally announced and it’s going to be one heck of a day for all of those that attend!

As well as panels on Superman: The New 52 era, Ducktales: Remastered, Supernatural, Breaking Bad, Teen Titans Go!, X-Men, Stephen King’s new miniseries Under the Dome, Sons of Anarchy and a Beware the Batman screening, there will also be a panel celebrating Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary.

Featuring appearances by Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and, of course, Steven Moffat, there will also be a chance to hear opinions from Mark Gatiss and David Bradley. Gatiss has just written An Adventure in Space and Time, a documentary-drama to be shown on the BBC later this year to explain the genesis of Doctor Who on television and Bradley (who also appeared as Solomon in Dinosaurs on a Spaceship) will be playing William Hartnell as he brings the very first Doctor to life. This will all take place on Sunday July 21st in Hall H.

On Thursday July 18th at the convention, you’ll also be able to see Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and Sue Vertue discussing Sherlock and what fans can expect from the newest series starring Bendict Cumberbatch that will be shown on the BBC later this year.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    For once, I would sorely love for there to be a Doctor Who convention that isn’t thousands of miles away from me… Come on people, there are fans here down in the southeast as well!

      Are you US based? I agree completely. I have been spoiled living in the Midwest, as we have a brilliant annual event here called Chicago Tardis. But so many other areas of the US get snubbed on a regular basis. Even our ComicCon never features a lineup of guests, Doctor Who or otherwise, the likes of which San Diego sees each year. The message sent is that San Diego is big and important, and anywhere else is secondary. I’ll tell you, as far as the US is concerned, if only the fine people of San Diego watched Doctor Who in America it wouldn’t last long here at all. There needs to be a much more thorough effort on BBC America’s part to promote the show throughout North America. And that means taking part in or organizing smaller events in other locales, as well as the “big” cities.

    I don’t suppose anyone asked why the scripts for series 7 were so awful…
