I never realized how important Michael and Ashton are to each other. Disregarding everything else, Ashton said that he worries about Michael all the time and that he does whatever he can to make Michael happy. The fact that Michael was struggling much more than we ever knew means that he is pretty good at hiding things, and I’m glad that he has Ashton to make sure that he’s alright.

There comes a time in every Time Lord’s regeneration where they must face the forces of Comic-Con. Peter Capaldi, who succeeded Matt Smith in 2013, received a brief respite when BBC America decided not to have a Doctor Who presence last year. Although he might not have the youthful looks of Smith, or David Tennant before him, the Scottish actor has now proven he has the same vigor as his predecessors; the gent hauled his severe eyebrows to interview after interview, panel after panel, and even the Hall H line. When it finally came time for him to step into the spotlight, there was a moment where he locked eyes with his co-star and Comic-Con veteran Jenna Coleman, who smiled back as if to say, “See, I told you it was bigger on the inside.”
