The panel on the popular BBC America science fiction program will wrap-up the annual four-day celebration of the popular arts, which was expected to draw 126,000 attendees.

The "Doctor Who" event is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. in Hall H. According to the Comic-Con website, more than 3,300 attendees plan to go to the session.

Among those scheduled to appear on the panel are stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman, and lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.

"Doctor Who" is about the adventures of the time-and space-traveling alien adventurer and his companions, who battle evil where they find it.

Hall H is also the site of a session on the AMC series "Breaking Bad," which is set for 11:15 a.m.

The day's other highlights include the annual Children's Film Festival at 10 a.m., an appearance by "Game of Thrones" author George R.R. Martin at noon, and a look at "Under the Dome," a television adaptation of Stephen King's novel, at 2:15 p.m.

Round-the-clock shuttle service between the convention center and area hotels is scheduled to end at 7 p.m., according to event organizers.
