Davidtennant_doctorwho_290 “Doctor Who” star David Tennant makes his first visit to Comic-Con on Sunday… though it’ll be his last as the Doctor, seeing as he’s passing the torch to Matt Smith.

Still, expect large crowds for that panel, as well as fellow BBC America series “Torchwood” and “Being Human.”

And speaking of intergalactic sci-fi, actor Callum Blue will lead the “Smallville” panel as the town prepares for the arrival of his General Zod.

See the Thursday schedule for Comic-Con.

And don’t miss the Friday schedule for Comic-Con.

Saturday is time to get ‘Lost’ at Comic-Con.

Sunday’s a short day, so make the most of it.
