Peter Capaldi will be making his San Diego Comic Con debut this July, heading to the sold-out fanfest with BBC America’s Doctor Who. BBC America has confirmed Doctor Who will host a Q&A panel in Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center on July 9, 2015 – the first day of Comic Con. Also set to make the trek to San Diego are Doctor Who‘s Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Michelle Gomez (Missy), lead writer/executive producer Steven Moffat, and executive producer Brian Minchin.

“Tales of San Diego Comic-Con are told in awe on every set around the known fantasy/sci-fi production world,” said Capaldi. “It’s become a fabled kingdom. One I am thrilled to find myself heading for. And to appear in the legendary Hall H, is a further twist to the cosplay and comic madness I may never recover from.”

According to BBC America, Capaldi’s first season as the Doctor was the show’s highest rated season ever. Doctor Who‘s second season with Capaldi will premiere this fall with a two-part episode: “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar.”
