Doctor Who at Comic-Con

News from Comic-Con will go here.

While the Doctor Who panel won't be until Sunday, Matt Smith was part of Entertainment Weekly's "Brave New Warriors" panel yesterday. Here are some clips:

Why he decided to stop being the Doctor:


What characteristics he shares with the Doctor:


He says he'll still keep watching after he leaves the show:


And here's Steven Moffat during the Sherlock panel, being asked if the the next Doctor could be a woman:

His young age is more apparent when he's just being himself.

Awww. I'm going to miss him. He was a pretty good Doctor.

*sigh*

I wish they wouldn't give episodes out like so many breadcrumbs. I hate waiting so long.

Re: Doctor Who at Comic-Con

Yeah, it all seems pretty pointless really. The anniversary special is too far away for us to get any meaningful news or info. And Matt's pretty much done at this point isn't he?

Not yet. He still has The Christmas Special to do, which is said to start filming around September.

Comic Con related. Karen took it one step further than Matt.

Re: Doctor Who at Comic-Con

The Doctor Who Panel happened today, hosted by Craig Ferguson. Can't find any video yet, but here are some tidbits from Screencrush:

  • Craig Ferguson hosted the panel, introducing Steven Moffat as “the bastard who killed Amy and Rory.” Moffat later said of the infamous couple’s fate “They died in their 80s. How much more merciful could I be?”
  • Moffat kept predictably tight-lipped about the series itself, especially the 50th Anniversary special, but did offer “there are certain things we’ve been setting up for a very long time and they will be resolving in the 50th anniversary.”
  • One recurrent topic was that of the Doctor’s unresolved sexual tension with his companions, which Smith says depends on which actor is within the role, describing his own as more flummoxed around women. Coleman called the character “asexual,” eliciting jeers from the crowd. Still, a snog isn’t outside the realm of possibility!
  • Future episodes might shoot in America, as Smith expressed a desire to shoot the Christmas Special here, but Moffat retorted they’ve only started to write it, and would want a specific reason to shoot in America.
  • On Captain Jack’s potential inclusion with the 50th Anniversary special, Moffat answered a fan question with “And how do you know what is or is not in the 50th?” Moffat admitted to “lying his ass off” in past interviews, but promised that Captain Jack could come back if they had a good story idea for him.
  • Smith admitted his desire to play “The Master” if not the Doctor, while Coleman jokes about playing Strax, despite Moffat’s insistence she would be too short for it.
  • “It’s supposed to be scary,” Moffat said of the frightening imagery of the show, which often evinces any gore or blood. “When I was a kid, I was proper terrified of ‘Doctor Who.’”
“there are certain things we’ve been setting up for a very long time and they will be resolving in the 50th anniversary.”
Please let this mean we will finally find out who blew up the TARDIS. :crosses fingers:

I'm hoping we finally hark back to End of Time. There were two disgraced Time Lords, one was the Doctors mother. The other we never found out about.

Matt Smith walks around the Comic-Con floor wearing a Bart Simpson mask, engaging in conversation with DW fans and commenting on DW merchandise. And nobody has a clue!
