SDCC 2008: Doctor Who and Torchwood

The first full day of Comic Con saw a British invasion of sorts as new Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat and outgoing executive producer Julie Gardner presented, followed by a discussion of Torchwood with Gardner and cast members John Barrowman, Gareth David Lloyd, and Naoko Mori. As you may know, Anthony Head has been on Doctor Who and James Marsters was on Torchwood last season. Steven Moffat and Julie Gardner were introduced to the packed Ballroom 20 crowd to thunderous applause. Once seated, the moderator started with a few questions of his own before giving the floor to audience members.

Preview Night: Comic-Con 2008 Blog Entry

It is now the Edge of Tedium to mention the early-bird crowds already clogging the streets of the Convention Center sidewide and Gas Lamp District on Wednesday Night at Comic Con in San Diego, but it has to be said in an admittedly vain attempt to prevent more attendees from doing the sardine boogie in the aisles. Early shopping was the order of the day, and for the newbies, and there were a few, a first real taste of the happy insanity that is the largest con in the Western Hemisphere. Today, the first official day of the con, will be a test of the increased registration personnel enthusiastically waving their arms to get attendees registered and on their merry way to panels, meetings and shopping. The exhibit hall this year is dominated by a giant Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade size balloon of Pokemon and more (and various) giant bags given out by Warner Brothers. And the giant purple Big Frakkin’ Bags given out by SciFi Channel. Honest, it says Big Frakkin’ Bag in big white letters.

Fresh off the John Barrowman booksigning, there will be Dr. Who and Torchwood panels, BSG panels, The Day The Earth Stood Still and Dexter. So, armed with a brand new camera, this iguana is off to forage in the well-illustrated jungle of the 2008 SDCC.

WonderCon 2008: Sunday

And on Sunday, WC came to a close…I woke up with a slight hangover Sunday morning, not remembering much after we settled in to watch Shoot ‘Em Up around 12:30 AM. I must’ve blacked out, but I apparently was coherent enough to pack away my media player, cables, clothes and other things, change and go to bed. Anyway, after checking out and walking in the rain to get breakfast, we ended up back at the Moscone Center for one final day.
