The Doctor is in at New York Comic Con

The upcoming NYCC will play host to former Dr.Who, Peter Davison. No word on where he'll be parking the TARDIS...

New York's Comic Con is the biggest pop culture event on the East Coast and just keeps getting bigger. This year, the 100k+ fans coming through the doors of the Javits Convention Center will be treated to not only an appearance by Davison, but a really generous autograph signing too!
"I am very grateful to Peter Davison for attending New York Comic Con," notes Lance Fensterman, Group Vice President for ReedPOP and Show Manager for NYCC. "Doctor Who symbolizes the scope and staying power of pop culture influences, which is what New York Comic Con is all about. 49-years-young, Doctor Who has influenced generations of fans, families and professionals, and we're proud to welcome one of the program's classic Doctors to America. Peter Davison's participation at NYCC underscores the range of talent that we present to our audience, and I am thankful that he is providing so much of his time for fans to meet him in person."  
Davison will be signing in the Autograph Area Friday, October 12th through Sunday the 14th. No times as of yet, but further details will be released soon- but even if it turns out to be for something like an hour a day, it's just amazing that he's confirmed for three different show days. That's conduct befitting a Doctor.
