In an epic battle across time and space,Team Nerdist challenged Doctor Who and his companions to a competition for the ages. Their arena was an alien land filled with unusual creatures (San Diego Comic-Con International) and the game was one of the greatest of all time - BOWLING.
The Doctor Who All Star Celebrity Bowling Special premieres Friday, August 31st as part of the Nerdist Channel’s “Doctor Who-eekend”. It’s sure to be more fun than an Adipose weight loss program!

We spot a few familiar Tumblr faces in there (and not just Doctor Puppet)
Our favorite bit from the NYTimes writeup on the WHOyorkcity premiere:
That “Doctor Who” has outgrown its cult-classic status since its 2005 reboot has been increasingly evident, not least in post-broadcast sales: According to a BBC America spokeswoman, the show was the most-downloaded series on iTunes in 2011, eclipsing popular favorites like “Mad Men” and “Glee.” Its devoted fandom was evident in the delighted shrieks that greeted the sight of David Tennant, Mr. Smith’s predecessor as the Doctor, and Burn Gorman, a star of the “Doctor Who” spinoff series “Torchwood,” in a preview trailer for the BBC mini-series “Spies of Warsaw.”
The Q&A video will be posted on Nerdist YouTube Channel after the season premiere on BBC AMERICA.
