Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con International issue hits newsstands Friday, July 3rd and in it, is an exclusive look at Doctor Who season 9, an interview with the The Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi, and this official first image.
It’s an exciting return for Doctor Who to the San Diego Comic-Con having not had a presence last year. It will also be Peter Capaldi’s very first comic-con and EW asked about what his expectations were:
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Are you looking forward to Comic-Con?
PETER CAPALDI: Very much. Comic-Con is so legendary, so a great thrill to be invited along.
EW: You told me last year that, as a child, you were always more intrigued than frightened by Doctor Who. But are you nervous at all about appearing in front of 7,000 people at the Doctor Who panel?
Very nervous. Don’t think I’ve ever stood in front of 7,000 people in my life. But if 7,000 people want to see us, it would be rude not to turn up.
The interview also covers what we can expect from next season, the guest stars, Jenna Coleman and if she’ll stay with the show, and if Peter Capaldi will walk the comic-con floor in disguise!
