‘Doctor Who’ Star David Tennant Added To Wizard World Comic Con Austin, September 21-22
David Tennant, who starred as the “Tenth Doctor” on the long-running series “Doctor Who,” has been added to the celebrity roster at next month’s Wizard World Comic Con Austin at the Austin Convention Center. He will appear on Friday and Saturday, September 21-22, as Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) continues its 2018 schedule with its ninth event in Austin.
Tennant will be joined in Austin by two “Doctor Who” stars, including Peter Capaldi, who portrayed the “Twelfth Doctor” and Pearl Mackie, whose character “Bill” was the companion to Capaldi’s iteration of the lead on the BBC series. Tennant will greet fans, sign autographs, pose for solo, dual and triple photo ops with his fellow “Doctor Who” stars at the event.
For “Whovians,” it will be a rare opportunity to meet the British star, who has also made an impact on audiences in the acclaimed current TV series “Broadchurch” and the Netflix series “Jessica Jones”). Tennant’s principal run as the Tenth Doctor began in 2005 and continued through 2009, with a reprisal in the landmark 50th anniversary special “The Day of the Doctor” in 2013. Since his early work on local Scottish television through roles in some of the most beloved fantasy and sci-fi franchises of all time, Tennant has been entertaining audiences with his unique brand of wit, warmth and humanity.
In addition to Capaldi and Mackie, Tennant joins Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory), Holly Marie Combs (“Charmed,” “Picket Fences”), Charisma Carpenter (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”), Brian Krause ("Charmed"), Kevin Sorbo ("Hercules," "Andromeda"), Neil McDonough ("Legends of Tomorrow," "Arrow") and Thomas Ian Nicholas (Rookie of the Year, American Pie) atop the roster of celebrity guests scheduled to attend the comic con and pop culture extravaganza.
