BBC AMERICA’S SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON PANELS SET FOR FANS ON SUNDAY, JULY 23 IN HALL H

Doctor Who’s Final Hall H Panel with Peter Capaldi Ahead of His Final Christmas Special – Moderated by Chris Hardwick

 Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency’s First-Ever Hall H Panel Leading into Season Two – Moderated by Kevin Smith

 

New York – Friday, July 7, 2017 – Announced today, BBC AMERICA returns to San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H for the final Doctor Who panel with star Peter Capaldi and the first-ever panel in the famed venue for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on Sunday, July 23 at 1:00 and 2:00pm.

Six years ago, BBCA’s Doctor Who was part of the first-ever slate of TV shows to gather with fans in Hall H, when San Diego Comic-Con presented a TV line-up in the 6,500 plus seat venue on Sunday, July 24, 2011. Returning to Hall H on Sunday, BBCA’s bringing its most anticipated Doctor Who panel yet with award-winning star Peter Capaldi (the Doctor), Pearl Mackie (Bill), Matt Lucas (Nardole), Michelle Gomez (Missy), writer and actor Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) and showrunner Steven Moffat (Sherlock).

Moderated by Chris Hardwick, the panel will give fans an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special – the final special starring Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and written by Emmy®-winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat. Last week’s season ten finale earned critical acclaim with The A.V. Club calling it “a pitch-perfect finale” and Vulture giving it five out of five stars.

While currently in production on season two of BBCA’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, stars Elijah Wood (Todd Brotzman), Samuel Barnett (Dirk Gently), Hannah Marks (Amanda Brotzman), Jade Eshete (Farah Black), Fiona Dourif (Bart), Mpho Koaho (Ken) and new to the cast, Alan Tudyk (Mr. Priest) and Tyler Labine (Sherlock Hobbs), will descend on Hall H with creator Max Landis (Bright) and showrunner Robert Cooper (Stargate Atlantis).

Moderated by Kevin Smith, the panel will chat with fans about how everything was connected in season one and provide an exclusive sneak peek at season two. Inspired by Douglas Adams’ (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the GalaxyDoctor Who) acclaimed novel and from the studio of The Walking Dead, WIRED says the BBCA series “has all the makings of a new cult favorite” and The Hollywood Reporter says it’s “a fun, absurdist story that will have loads of weird twists and turns.”

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency Season One and Doctor Who Season Ten are available to binge now on BBCAmerica.com, BBC America App and On Demand.
