Comic Con 2015 Doctor Who panel preview: Everything you need to know

Posted on

Simon Ridgway/BBC America

Before Thursday’s Doctor Who panel, here’s a refresher on the BBC America drama:

Where we left off: The usual place — which is to say, with the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) reunited and preparing to visit new places and times in a blue box which is bigger on the inside than it appears from its exterior. So, not really that usual.

What we know about next season: Michelle Gomez’s villainous Missy returns in the two-part premiere and guest stars include Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams.

Comic-Con burning question: Will this be Coleman’s final season on the show? Expect that, and many other questions, not to be answered at the panel by super-secretive executive producer Steven Moffat although Capaldi recently told EW that he hoped this wouldn’t be the actress’ last year in the TARDIS.
