Doctor Who and new spin-off Class will appear in panels at New York Comic Con this October. The Doctor Who panel includes stars Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie, as well as Steven Moffat and executive producer Brian Minchin. The Class panel includes stars Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah, as well as writer, creator and executive producer Patrick Ness and executive producer Brian Minchin.
Peter Capaldi will make his New York Comic Con debut along with the first ever appearance by new co-star Pearl Mackie, who joins the series as Bill, the Doctor’s new companion. When Pearl joined the cast, Emmy-winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat teased “a new voyage is about to begin” and “this is where the story really starts.” Fans will get a sneak peek of what’s ahead including the upcoming Christmas Special this December and hints on what’s in store for Steven Moffat’s final season as showrunner.
There will also be a panel at New York Comic Con for the new series Class, a Doctor Who spin-off set in Shoreditch, London. Four Coal Hill School students who have hidden secrets and desires, navigate a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow – and possibly the end of existence. Fear is coming, tragedy is coming, war is coming.
Coal Hill School has been a part of the Doctor Who universe since the very beginning, but that has come at a price. Time travelling over the years has caused the very walls of space and time to become thin. There’s something pressing in on the other side, something waiting for its chance to kill everyone and everything, to bring us all into Shadow.
Matt Smith and Karen Gillan will also be there on Thursday and Friday.
