Sorry, Comic Con Fans—No Doctor Who at SDCC This Year

After last year’s stellar Hall H gathering for Doctor Who at San Diego Comic Con, you would think that the BBC would be eager to repeat the experience. But it would seem that the tight production schedule is preventing cast and crew from making an appearance this year, leaving U.S. Whovians to futilely keyboard smash alone.

It should be pointed out that they are embarking on a “World Tour” shortly after the summer has ended. This was the statement given to that effect:

Doctor Who’s cast and creators will not be in attendance at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014. They are currently in production until August on the upcoming season – 12 all new back-to-back episodes. Given the unprecedented success of the global event around the 50th Anniversary, BBC AMERICA and BBC Worldwide will launch the first-ever Doctor Who world tour in August to celebrate the new chapter of the series starring Peter Capaldi.

Bascially, they’re saying “guys, we’ve got literally no time to waste until these episodes are complete and in front of your face. Sorry about that.” Which seems fair enough. It’s just sad to hear that there will be no sneak peek in July, as there has been for the past couple years.

Ah, well. We’ve only got until August to wait! Hot, sweltering August.
