Texas’ Largest Gathering of Pop Culture Lovers Taking Over Dallas Convention Center for Three Days

Among the pop culture luminaries on hand will be the stars of the internationally famous British TV series, Doctor Who: Peter Capaldi (the time-traveling Doctor pictured below), Michelle Gomez (the evil Missy) and Jenna Coleman (the Doctor’s companion, Clara Oswald) — sharing the same stage for the first time ever in North America.
