DOCTOR WHO: Panel and Q&A

Sunday, July 15, 12:30-1:30pm

HALL H

BBC AMERICA's (@BBCAMERICA) Doctor Who stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan make their triumphant return to Comic-Con for a panel and Q&A moderated by Doctor Who pundit and creator of the Nerdist, Chris Hardwick. They will be joined by star Arthur Darvill, who's making his first pilgrimage to SDCC, along with award-winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock) and award-winning executive producer Caroline Skinner (The Fades). As fans eagerly await the new season's premiere, BBC AMERICA has learned that Steven Moffat and team will be bringing something very special with them to reveal to fans in Hall H.

Doctor Who follows the adventures of the Doctor, the mysterious traveler who journeys through all of time and space, picking up companions along the way and almost always sidestepping danger. The iconic sci-fi series stars Matt Smith as the Doctor and Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as his companions, Amy Pond and Rory Williams, aka The Ponds. Last season delivered record ratings for BBC AMERICA and marked the first time Doctor Who filmed on American soil. Its finale ended with the the Doctor's greatest escape yet and the intimation of an even greater reckoning to come. Ahead of the new season, BBC AMERICA will premiere new Doctor Who specials - The Science of Doctor Who, The Women of Doctor Who, The Timey-Wimey Stuff of Doctor Who, and The Destinations of Doctor Who - as part of the Supernatural Saturday programming block starting Saturday, August 4, 9:00pm ET/PT.

As well as the Hall H panel, Doctor Who's Matt Smith will appear on TV Guide's Fan Favorites panel on Saturday, July 14, 1:00-2:00pm in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel.
