As San Diego Comic-Con is underway, one of the convention’s biggest draws made a giant leap forward. The BBC series, Doctor Who, now on its ninth season of the relaunched series, and its thirty-fifth overall, usually dominated Hall H on Sunday afternoon, sending Comic-Con off in a big way until the next year. But this year, the series jumped ahead to opening day on Thursday afternoon, opening day, and setting up the things to come for the weekend.
The panel offered insights in what’s to come, and also dropped the first trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, which will be the second featuring Peter Capaldi in the role of The Doctor. This new trailer, which you can check out below, promises many familiar characters and foes, our first look at Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams, and much more. It’s a fantastic teaser for what’s to come, and I can’t wait to see what Steven Moffat has in store for us.
Doctor Who Season 9 will debut on September 19, 2016.
