It was a sunny Thursday afternoon in San Diego when Whovians from across the globe descended on Hall H to welcome Peter Capaldi to his first Comic Con. The crowd of 7000+ people that showed up for the Doctor Who panel was enthusiastic to say the least, but Capaldi worked that crowd like the professional he is. Joining him on stage were Jenna Coleman (Clara), Michelle Gomez (Missy), and Steven Moffat, the man in charge of the timiest and wimiest show on Earth. Chris Hardwick of The Nerdist moderated and everyone was very well behaved. Michelle Gomez didn’t try to conquer Earth even once. That’s pretty good behavior.
Obviously a fun panel, the mood was entirely upbeat and the topics ranged from why the Doctor is Scottish to what Missy does during her “down time.” Fans were given a chance to ask questions, too, and many of those brought about some of the best responses and biggest laughs. Fans who waited hours in line will agree the Doctor Who panel was well worth the wait.
And Michelle Gomez is one seriously funny lady.
