Yes! BBC America will be hosting a fan screening of episode 8 ‘Mummy on The Orient Express’ Saturday October 11th from 8:15 PM - 9:15 PM, Empire Stage 1-E. Here’s some more info:
BBC America presents its first ever Doctor Who Fan screening at New York Comic Con with the new episode “Mummy On The Orient Express.” The episode, written by Jamie Mathieson (Being Human, Dirk Gently) and directed by Emmy-winning Director Paul Wilmshurst, will be shown to Fans at NYCC ahead of its premiere on BBC America.
The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) are on the most beautiful train in history speeding among the stars of the future. But a deadly creature is stalking the passengers. Once you see the horrifying Mummy you only have 66 seconds to live. No exceptions, no reprieve.
As the Doctor races against the clock Clara sees him at his deadliest and most ruthless. Will he work out how to defeat the Mummy? Start the clock!
Guest Stars in the episode include Frank Skinner, Foxes and David Bamber.
We’d also like to mention that Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams) will be doing autograph signings on Thursday (today!), Friday & Saturday, and that Alex Kingston (River Song) will be doing signings Saturday and Sunday. For the full schedule of signings please check out New York Comic Con’s page here.
Alsoalso, be on the lookout for a little adipose running around the con floor, because we’ll be on the hunt for Doctor Who cosplayers to post to the blog. If you’re at New York Comic Con this weekend and come across some amazing Doctor Who cosplay, be sure to tag your uploads with #DWNYCC. We’ll be reblogging stuff from the tag all weekend!
If you’re new to “Who” or just want a refresher course then look no further than this all-encompassing and compressive infographic here.
It’s that time of the year

WHY IS YOUR HEADER BBC AMERICA. I'M SO CONFUSED. YOU HAVE AWESOME TAGS. AND YOU LIKE TALK TO EVERYONE LIKE NOT-OFFICIAL-TV-SHOW-BLOGS.
Doo wee ooo! (This is part 2 of 2 for anyone just joining us.)
We spend lots of our time at the BBC Worldwide offices. They have cupboards full of tea, good wifi and lots of comfy places to sit.
We especially like to sit near the BBC America TARDIS. Factoid: it’s the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith's original TARDIS. ( ﾟoﾟ)Here we are hanging out with our friend, Herb Scannell, President, BBC Worldwide America. nbd.
spoopyscarysupersoldiers said: wait, so if you're the actual official dw tumblr, why are you using words like sadipose? oh my gosh. wait. bbc lets you actually do stuff?? is this like someone on the bbc staff's side blog????? this is weird like i'd always though there was just a machine or queue or something reblogging things in the dw tag sometimes. there's a person. adding gifs to posts and saying things like sadipose. i have had an epiphany. epiphanies aren't good for sick people. oh my gosh.
Hello, Doctor Who Tumblr here.
Yep. We’re here everyday checking the tags, reading your asks & hoping you feel better when you aren’t feeling very well - we hope you do.
Our reply to your second ask is coming up. Click here for part 2 of 2.
wee-bit-breid said: I bet the Doctor Who Tumblr is actually run by Clara. There's no way the Doctor himself would make all these silly replies XD Especially the Twelfth. He's far too serious! ...Unless it's the TARDIS doing it herself? Tell us, who runs this Tumblelog?
Thank you for watching the U.S. premiere of Doctor Who Series 8: Deep Breath with us! Stay tuned and make sure to tweet us your questions for #After Who. We’re having a party with nerdist at 11/10c on bbcamerica!
