We’ve been crazy busy since Thursday night preparing for the Series 7.2 premiere of Doctor Who: The Bells of Saint John. Here’s where we stand so far:
David Tennant and Billie Piper slated to return for the Doctor Who 50th Special. The legendary John Hurt will also guest star. And, of course, Matt and Jenna will be there. Filming begins Monday. There’s a lot planned for this special and the 50th in general so other announcements to come.
We will be livetumblring tonight’s U.S. broadcast premiere of Doctor Who, reblogging gifs, art, and reactions from the episode. This means that if you’re watching along on Tumblr, you’ll see moments from the show show up in your dashboard as it happens on TV. We’ll do our usual announcement post in an hour or two.
The Doctor Who BBC America Marathon continues all day today. If you need to catch up on Seasons 6 and 7, now’s the time to do it.
If you’re having a Doctor Who Premiere Party, take a photo, post it using the tag Doctor Who Premiere Party. Do it no matter how many attendees you have because even if you’re watching alone, you’re not — you’re watching with us. The Tumblr Dashboard is our party. We want to see you with your Doctor Who t-shirts and your sonics and your cosplay. And we want to reblog.
We’ve taken over the @DoctorWho_BBCA Twitter handle this weekend. And, tbh, we run that handle all the time but this weekend is special because we’re going to have fun with it all day. There will be contests. And prizes. You will need glue and crayons and construction paper. Because that’s how we do.
And if you haven’t seen it, we’ve been finding Whovians on Twitter and changing their avatars to include sonics and bow ties and fezzes. And then we tweet at them telling them that their avatars have been #Doctored. Get it? Pun? Anyway, we don’t know how many we’ll get to today, but if you want a custom Twitter avatar, tweet at us with the hashtag #Doctored. Maybe we can get it trending again.
The UK world premiere starts in less than THREE HOURS! We are SO CLOSE!
See everyone soon!
