BBC AMERICA's "DOCTOR WHO" & "BEDLAM" SET FOR COMIC-CON 2011

Doctor Who's Matt Smith and Karen Gillan to make their first appearance

BBC AMERICA returns to Comic-Con International: San Diego with the stars and creators of their hit series Doctor Who and new sexy supernatural series Bedlam - for panels, signings and exclusive merchandise at the BBC AMERICA booth (#3629).

DOCTOR WHO: Panel and Q&A

Sunday, July 24, 12:30-1:30pm

HALL H

Stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan make their first Comic-Con appearance for a panel and Q&A with Doctor Who writer Toby Whithouse (Being Human creator) and executive producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis. They're bringing with them, exclusive new footage from the new episodes airing later this summer on BBC AMERICA. Doctor Who follows the adventures of the Doctor, the mysterious traveler who journeys throughout all of time and space, picking up companions along the way and almost always sidestepping danger.

Doctor Who, from award winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, stars BAFTA nominee Matt Smith as the Doctor and Karen Gillan as his companion Amy Pond, along with Arthur Darvill as Rory and Alex Kingston who plays River Song. Part One of the new season, which premiered in April, delivered record ratings for BBC AMERICA and marked the first time Doctor Who filmed on American soil. Its finale ended with the unveiling of a massive secret and the words "Let's Kill Hitler" on screen. Part One of Doctor Who arrives on Blu-ray/DVD on July 19 and Part Two premieres late summer on BBC AMERICA's Supernatural Saturdays. Twitter: @BBCAmerica / #DoctorWho

BEDLAM: Exclusive U.S. Premiere Screening and Q&A

Friday, July 22, 5:15-6:15pm

ROOM 7AB

Star Theo James (Underworld 4: New Dawn, Downton Abbey) and creator David Allison (Boy Meets Girl) host a premiere screening event followed by discussion and Q&A. Bedlam Heights, the stylish new apartment building, has sexy tenants and gorgeous decor. But little do the new residents suspect that behind the luxury fittings lay unimaginable horrors. This is a place tainted by abuse, suffering and death - and the ghosts of its dark and violent past are out for revenge. As the direct descendent of those who ran the asylum, Kate (Charlotte Salt, The Tudors) - who both lives and works there - is a prime target. She is surprised by the unexpected arrival of Jed (James) - her adopted cousin. Jed is unique. With a history of mental illness, he's a troubled man who sees ghosts and visions of the past. Recent messages to 'Save Kate,' propel him back into Kate's life. Can he really 'Save Kate?' And from whom, or what, does she need saving? Everybody has a dark side in this new series also starring Ashley Madekwe (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Hugo Speer (Skins) and Will Young (Pop Idol winner, Skins). Bedlam premieres Saturday, October 8, 9:00pm ET/PT on BBC AMERICA's Supernatural Saturdays. Twitter: @BBCAmerica / #Bedlam.
