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

The "Doctor Who" event was held in Hall H. According to the Comic-Con website, more than 3,300 attendees planned to go to the session.

Among who appeared on the panel were 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 was also the site of a session on the AMC series "Breaking Bad," which was held at 11:15 a.m.

Actor Bryan Cranston entered the room wearing a full head mask depicting the character he plays in the series, Walter White. Minutes later, he took it off and the panel moderator revealed a secret.

"This was genius," the moderator said. "Cranston was walking the floor with the Walter White mask on."

Cranston added, "It was the most fun I've ever had walking a floor, taking a lot of pictures ... I tried to use a higher voice."

"Breaking Bad" is about a former high school chemistry teacher who gets a diagnosis of terminal cancer and decides to cook meth for a living.

The day's other highlights included 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.
