Capaldi to visit 'fabled kingdom'
Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi is set to make his first ever appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego.
BBC Worldwide and BBC America announced the news today.
Capaldi will be joined by co-stars Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Michelle Gomez (Missy), executive producer Brian Minchin and lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.
Capaldi said: " Tales of San Diego Comic-Con are told in awe on every set around the known fantasy/sci-fi production world. It's become a fabled kingdom. One I am thrilled to find myself heading for.
"And to appear in the legendary Hall H, is a further twist to the cosplay and comic madness I may never recover from."
Every year fans from the world over flock to the festival, most of them dressed as characters from their favourite TV shows.
Capaldi took over as the Time Lord last year from Matt Smith.
The new season of Doctor Who will be a two-part episode premiere: The Magician's Apprentice and The Witch's Familiar.
