BBC AMERICA’S DOCTOR WHO SET FOR HALL H PANEL AT COMIC-CON

Doctor Who returns to San Diego Comic-Con for a Hall H panel on Thursday, July 9. 

Following his record-breaking first season as the Doctor, Peter Capaldi will make his first ever appearance at Comic-Con with stars Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Michelle Gomez (Missy), lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat and executive producer Brian Minchin

Peter Capaldi on making his first Comic-Con appearance: “Tales of San Diego Comic Con are told in awe on every set around the known fantasy/sci-fi production world. 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.”

The new season premieres this fall with a two-part episode, The Magician’s Apprentice and The Witch’s Familiar, written by Steven Moffat, produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Hettie Macdonald (Blink, the Hugo Award-winning Doctor Who episode).

#CloneClub asked, Orphan Black’s Josh Vokey answered! Here’s PART TWO of Josh’s #AskOB!

Hello Josh! Which clone besides Cosima would you most like to have a scene with and why? - hella-manda

Sarah. The first time they met he helped spring her from an operating table. It’s a great introduction and a good reason to become friends.

What’s been your favorite character to interact with on screen and who is the best to hang with off-screen? - naynaywarbler

Favorite on-screen? Wow. Tough. But I have to say Cosima.  She’s Scott’s best friend. Off-screen? Evelyn and I started our first day on the show together three years ago and I’ve loved every minute of hanging with her on and off the screen. She’s become a good friend and she’s a powerhouse. I got to spend some time with Jordan this year, and I hope to have lots more with him. He’s an intelligent, kinetic guy and lovely man. And then there’s Tat. She was the first person I met on set and she was gracious and kind from the first second I met her. I feel like we’ve been buddies forever. I think it’s safe to say that the friendship between Scott and Cosima was influenced in, a way, by our own friendship.

I started the show as a fan of the rest of the cast and we’ve all become a tight knit group over the past few years. I love ‘em all!  It’s an amazing community.

If Scott had the ability to clone himself, do you think he would? - Cosimacallsbullshit

I think he would weigh the moral implications of cloning himself to the point of a panic attack and then Cosima would have to talk him back down to normal.

Describe season 3 in one word from Scott’s own perspective! - Jewvian

Uh oh. *Scott chorkles* (snort/chuckles)…..

Scott has a lot of love for science and Runewars. What are some games, hobbies, and/or interests that you are equally passionate about? - supahdupah

Film. I’ve been into movies my whole life.  Music. Vinyl specifically. Also I’ve always really loved writing and anything that involves driving a vehicle outside on or off a road.  I DID really enjoy gaming for a time but I found that I got wayyy too invested and had to give it up for my own sanity and my girlfriend’s. As far as board games go, I loved Risk as a kid and my mother says I always got a twisted sense of satisfaction from destroying family members at Monopoly. I know they’re old fashioned game choices but I’ve always been a fan of the classics.

Thanks for all of your questions, #CloneClub! Read PART ONE of Josh’s #AskOB right here.

Miss Piggy’s Tragic Backstory & More You Didn’t Know About the Muppets

Frank Oz explained her history to The New York Times in 1979: “She grew up in a small town in Iowa; her father died when she was young, and her mother wasn’t that nice to her. She had to enter beauty contests to survive, as many single women do. She has a lot of vulnerability which she has to hide, because of her need to be a superstar.”
