This year “Doctor Who” returned to San Diego Comic-Con and expectations were higher than ever.

Peter Capaldi – who plays the 12th Doctor – was on hand for his first taste of the Comic-Con experience. Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez, and showrunner Steven Moffat all joined him for the “Doctor Who” panel where the first trailer for Series 9 was shown.

But that was only the beginning. HitFix Harpy caught up with each of them before the panel to get the scoop on the upcoming season and play a game or two. Of course, interviews of this nature seldom stay on topic for very long. But the results are always entertaining!
