Doctor Who Season 8

Doctor Who took Hall H by storm this year, welcoming Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi to Comic-Con for the very first time. “I’ve never been in front of 7,000 people in my life,” he remarked upon seeing the crowd. But it didn’t take him long to adjust. He and the other panelists — stars Jenna Coleman and Michelle Gomez, and showrunner Steven Moffat — quickly won over the Whovians who’d waited all day.

Over the course of an hour, the group discussed the shifting dynamics between the characters, the “reckless” adventures of Season 9, the possibilities of a female Doctor, the likelihood of a Sherlock crossover, and more. Hit the jump for all the Doctor Who Comic-Con panel highlights.
