One morning in every city and town in the world, the human race wakes up to face the most surprising invasion yet.
Everywhere, in every land, a forest has grown overnight and taken back the Earth. It doesn’t take the Doctor long to discover that the final days of humanity have arrived…
"We are in the middle of London."
"We are in the middle of a forest!"
Doctor Who series 8 episode 10 'In the Forest of the Night' premieres next week, Saturday October 25th at 9/8c on BBC America!
Today is a bittersweet sort of day here at BBC America, as a dear friend and colleague will be moving on to new and exciting things after 10 1/2 years with us!
Some of you may not know Rory personally. Some of you may have received a pun-filled e-mail from him to congratulate you on winning a prize from the Doctor Who tumblr; hemay have left you a nice comment on your Cophine Youtube video, or you may have met him at the BBC America booth at Comic Con!
There’s not many people who will drop everything they’re doing to help whenever you need it. Rory is one of the loveliest people we’ve had the honor of working with, and we’re going to miss seeing him every day.
So Allons-y Rory!
Enjoy this new journey!
And never forget how special you are (because There Is Only One Of You).
We’re so excited for all of the new possibilities open to you, and #Thank You Rory for being a wonderful friend!
Hey #CloneClub, join us in giving Rory a proper send off! He’s been part of the OB trip since day one, and unsubstantiated reports suggest he has watched EVERY SINGLE ORPHAN BLACK FAN VIDEO ever uploaded to YouTube. He even made a playlist of over 500 of his favorites. See?
Thank you, Rory. There’s only one of you.
Sugar packets and Eskimo pies,
We see good fortune in your future… Thank you, Rory, and have fun on your new adventure!
Rory, before you go, Madison wants to know:
It was an honor to work with you, friend. Thank you Rory!
Rory, you are the absolute opposite of rubbish:
"I really like your fascinator."
Oh, Rory, we wish you all the best, but we will MISS you!
Rory is one of our favorite people in all of Time and Space and we’re sad to see him leave, but we’re so excited to see what he does next! So many new worlds are open to you, the UNIVERSE is your oyster! (if you have a TARDIS)
Let’s all send Rory some well wishes, he deserves it! Thank you Rory for everything you’ve done for us!

Hello, Whovians. A while back we asked you guise to submit your best Twelfth Doctor / Clara Oswald fanart to be featured at the very beginning of the Doctor Who World Tour in New York City, and shown to hundreds of fans in the theater! We know that not all of you had you own TARDIS to get you to the Ziegfeld, so here’s a video of what everyone got to see at the event.
Check out the size of that screen and the size of that crowd!
(Unfortunately this slideshow is silent, but that can easily be fixed by playing the Doctor Who theme in the background. Or Clara’s theme. Or the theme from Jurassic Park. The tunes are up to you!)
A huuuuuuge dinosaur-sized Doctor Who Thank You to everyone who sent us their art and to everyone who came out to the World Tour and saw said art up on a big screen!
