Doctor Who at SDCC 2012: Cowboys and Dinos and Groundhogs, Oh My!

By - July 18, 2012

After many fans waited 14 hours or more, they were treated to Doctor Who’s return to SDCC’s legendary Hall H yet again this year, bringing Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, and Stephen Moffat to the states.

They showed a few clips, a couple of which came from the upcoming season. One clip came from an upcoming episode called “A Town Called Mercy,” a cowboy style adventure they filmed in Spain.

Another clip offered a glimpse at an episode called “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.” It’s pretty clear what that one’s about, as well as featuring Nefertiti and Rory’s dad. Moffat seemed quite proud of this one, stating that having dinosaurs on a spaceship is the secret to success.

The best fan question asked what the actors would like to have seen on Doctor Who. Matt said Atlantis, which has been done a few times on Doctor Who but Moffat said they may go ahead and do it anyway. Karen said she would like them to get miniaturized and trapped in a giant piano. Hardwick had a fascinating idea that The Doctor should visit the town of Punxsutawney to figure out a strange time loop-taking place on Groundhog Day.

The final episodes of Doctor Who with companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams are coming sometime this fall. Moffat guarantees it’ll be heart wrenching.
