Sounds like The Doctor Who panel at Comicon was pretty wild and fun according to io9:

The Doctor Who panel was more fun than informative, as it really should be. David Tennant had a huge standing ovation, and people in the crowd were shouting “WE LOVE YOU!!” at regular intervals. At one point, Tennant responded “We love you too. Each one of you in a slightly different, individual way. We want you to know that.”


Someone asked David Tennant if the new Who is a reimagining of the old show, and he responded: “It’s the same show and the story continues. I’m playing the same man tht William Hartnell was playing. I just have a slghtly different wig.”

Someone from the Guinness Book Of World Records presented the show with an award for being the most successful science fiction show of all time, and Davies happily accepted, making jokes about Star Trek. “”Eat that, Supernatural!” He shouted, followed by “Eat me, Supernatural — oh I didn’t really say that, did I?”

Someone mentioned that John Barrowman (who plays Captain Jack Harkness) talked about stealing a few items from the Doctor Who set, and asked if Tennant had taken anything as well. Executive producer Julie Gardner quipped, “I think John Barrowman just stole things off the set so he could be strip-searched.”

Tennant only has one regret about leaving the show now: “The one thing I leave the show with a great sadness about is, I didn’t get to snog Bernard Cribbins. I got to snog all the other ones.”

It’s somewhat heartwarming to see something…that I grew up on ever since I was a kid in Florida…turn into such a well loved series by everyone. It’s like there is a validation there that every thing that you thought was cool and was only know by you was finally starting to be a part of the culture. It feels like something you helped make possible.

Breakdown of Tennant’s last episode after the break.

We see the planet Earth from space, with the sun coming out behind it, and Timothy Dalton’s voice purrs: “It is said that in the final days of the planet Earth, everyone had bad dreams.” And then we see weird laughing faces, followed by David Tennant looking quite perturbed. We see glimpses of Wilf, Donna, Donna’s mother, and an African man in a suit, all looking very serious. And there’s a scary snake-faced creature. And then there’s a figure in a dark hoodie lurking ominously. Dalton narrates: “He returns.” We catch a glimpse of Ood Sigma, the Ood who told the Doctor his song was ending. And then the Doctor standing in the background, with the guy in a hoodie in the foreground. And then the hoodie comes off, and it’s John Simm with his hair weirdly bleached! His voice comes: “My name is the Master.” And then a title comes on the screen: “THE END OF TIME.” And the Doctor walks forward with flames in the background, his face looking smoky and serious. And the title says “CHRISTMAS 2009.” And the crowd goes wild.

Russell T. Davies did confirm that Lucy Saxon, the Master’s long-suffering wife, will be back in the final episodes, alongside Simms. And the words “He will knock four times” have a great significance.

And Tennant alluded to something bad that happens to the Doctor’s jacket in one of the last scenes he shot.
