SDCC: DW & TW final report
- Ok, just wanted to offer up final thoughts on the presence of Dr Who and
Torchwood at Comic-Con this year.
As I mentioned before: Torchwood panel, Noel Clarke autograph, Inkworks
trading cards, and Weta showing two of the four statues they intend to
The two statues were: the opened Dalek from "Dalek", which was mostly
complete, and the Cyber Controller in its chair from "Age of Steel".
The other two statues were never shown, but somebody really wanted us to
get some decent pictures of the statues, because they kept shifting the
covers each day: one day you could see the 4th Doctor's scarf, another
you could see the shoes, then a cigar being held, and part of a Dalek
Cards in front of the statues did indicate the story that these two were
inspired from, which are: the 4th Doctor and Davros (from "Genesis of
the Daleks", and the Master and Auton (from "Terror of the Autons").
Also, an announcement was made late Friday that IDW will be publishing
Doctor Who comic books, with the possibility that they could do trade
reprints of the old Marvel comics. These will be 10th Doctor stories,
but no word yet on the creative team.
Finally, I picked up a Micro Talking Dalek Classic toy at one of the
booths. It goes nicely with my Skutter. :)
