The Doctor Who team packed out Hall H at Comic-Con this weekend, and Digital Spy were on hand to live blog the event for those who missed out! The panel was made up of Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner, who were unsurprisingly met with deafening screams as they took the stage.
Arthur and Karen spoke briefly about their departure from the show, with Karen admitting ”I didn’t stop crying for two weeks. I didn’t hold it together.” Matt added that it was great to be able to film the Ponds’ last scenes with the Weeping Angels, saying “It’s a climactic, fitting and I think brilliant end to what I think are my two favorite companions.” Everyone in the room seemed upset at the prospect of the Ponds’ departure, with Steven confessing that writing their goodbye was ”genuinely, properly sad.” The panelists also hinted at future episodes that included dinosaurs on space ships and lots of Daleks!
Although series seven of Doctor Who has been given no official start date yet, Matt also hinted as reported by the Metro that it could be set to air in August! To tide you over, you can read the full panel live blog at Digital Spy.
