Doctor Who : Latest News from Comic-Con
RTD & Co. host a panel out at Comic-Con sharing some facts about the future with the fans - SPOILERS ahead...
At this year's Comic-Con, which has been taking place over the past few days in San Diego, Doctor Who fans were treated to a panel featuring Russell T Davies, David Tennant, Julie Gardner and Euros Lyn.
During this session some facts were relayed regarding the upcoming specials so if you are remaining SPOILER-FREE then you'd better stop reading now (though this information will be all over the place soon enough).
First up though came the issue of the Doctor Who Movie which many people thought was the purpose of RTD and Tennant's appearance at Comic-Con. Sadly, for the time being, there will be no announcement of a cinematic outing for the Time Lord though the prospect of a film is being seriously looked at.
The audience got a sneak peak at the last two specials - which may be called The End of Time - in the form of a very quick preview, narrated by Timothy Dalton. In the clip the characters Wilfred Mott (played by Bernard Cribbins), Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) and The Master (a very blonde looking John Simm) all made an appearance. Outgoing showrunner Davies revealed that Lucy Saxon would also be making a return.
David Tennant hasn't ruled a return as Gallifrey's finest (he even joked about the 50th anniversary in 2013) and before he bows out as The Tenth Doctor he will be seen first in The Sarah Jane Adventures two-parter entitled, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith (due for broadcast in October).
With regards to the other spin-off series Torchwood, which has recently aired on BBC America to record ratings, Russell T Davies said that nothing was definite but he was confident of its return in some shape or form.
