Doctor Who is coming out West, to Ancient Egypt and taking dinosaurs to space it was revealed at Comic-Con today. The British series (seen here on BBC America) has a Western episode coming this season. Today’s panel showed a brief preview of that as well as longer clip with a Cleopatra character and dinosaurs from another episode. The Western clip had the Doctor stumbling into a saloon brawl. Like Clint Eastwood’s spaghetti Westerns, theDoctor Who Who episode was actually not filmed in the U.S. “We did the one thing you always have to do when shooting iconic American culture, we went to Spain,” joked the series lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat before playing the clip. Moffat, who was otherwise resolutely circumspect about the upcoming season, later revealed that the new Doctor Who would “have more Daleks that you’ve ever seen in one place and a new generation of Daleks,” He added, “I don’t think we’ve ever had a wider variety of episodes than what we are about to show you.” The panel included Who executive producer Caroline Skinner, Moffat, cast members Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill join and to huge applause the 11th Doctor himself Matt Smith.
