If you’re an American “Doctor Who” fan and haven’t made plans yet to attend this year’s San Diego Comic Con, you may want to try and change those plans.
BBC America announced yesterday that the man who brings the 10th Doctor to life, David Tennant, will attend the the annual San Diego Comic Con. Tennant will be joined by outgoing producer Russell T. Davies at the event.
They will take part in a “Doctor Who” panel, along with executive producer Julie Gardner and director Euros Lyn, July 26 at 10 a.m. PT.
Tennant will travel to San Diego having shot his final scenes as the 10th Time Lord. He and fellow panelists will discuss the latest incarnation of television’s longest-running science fiction series and take questions from the floor. There will also be exclusive sneak peeks from the upcoming specials, which will debut on BBC America.
The stars and makers of “Torchwood” will also make an appearance 48 hours after the last episode of “Children of Earth” airs on BBC America, with a panel featuring star John Barrowman, writer/executive producer Davies, executive producer Julie Gardner and director Lyn, July 26 at 2:15 p.m.
“Being Human”‘s creator and writer, Toby Whithouse, plus lead actors Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner, will appear at the same panel to talk about the inspiration for the show and what it’s like to play three twentysomethings with secret double lives: a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost. All four panelists will be signing exclusively at the BBC America booth on July 25 at 3 p.m.
Comic-Con takes place July 23-26.
