Now that this has been featured on the latest episode of Lindalee’s Doctor Who Fanart Review I can share it with you. I’m still floating on cloud 9 because of Lindalee’s reaction to my art for her.
(By the way I started at the part with my art so you could see where it fit in with the video, but you should watch the whole thing especially since John Barrowman -and some of his art- is in this video. Infact just watch everything with Lindalee.)

Yes, just watch everything with Lindalee.

doctorwho: we thought there should really be a pre-show that would be on tv on Saturday before the simulcast...

doctorwho:

Hey those guise at BBC America are having a Doctor Who marathon (its on right now) leading up to The Day of The Doctor and that’s pretty cool, but then we thought, “There should really be a pre-show that would be on TV on Saturday before the simulcast”, but it should also be on YouTube and we’d probably want someone like, we don’t know, the Nerdist to make it.

But then there would have to be a Whovian from the internet like Veronica Belmont host it and then we’d want YouTubers as guests and instead of talking about themselves they’d be looking at Tumblr posts and Instagrams and replying to Twitter tweets and Vine vines by other Whovians celebrating all around the world and we’d ask viewers to do a fan challenge and we’d all have a big party there to celebrate The Day of the Doctor.

Doesn’t that sound like a good idea?

Cool. Let’s do it. 

Here’s a press release.

BBC America commissions a full season of The Nerdist with Chris Hardwick for 2013!

From the BBC America press release:

BBC AMERICA’s General Manager Perry Simon today ordered a full season of The Nerdist, a comedy-variety talk show based on comedian, writer, Doctor Who evangelist and web pundit Chris Hardwick’s hit Nerdist Podcast. The season will premiere in Spring 2013 as part of the channel’s signature Supernatural Saturday programming block, also home to Doctor Who, Being Human and new original series Orphan Black. Along with The Nerdist series, Chris Hardwick will be fronting the entire Supernatural Saturday programming block in the spring.
 
The series pick-up follows a collection of specials pegged to pop culture events throughout 2012. Matt Mira and Jonah Ray, Chris’s partners in the Nerdist Podcast, will return as contributors. The Nerdist series will be shot in Los Angeles on a brand-new set and will feature celebrity guests, UK and US-based correspondents as well as stand-up and musical performances.

Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America says: “We could not be more pleased to be expanding our relationship with Chris by ordering The Nerdist series with an exciting new format, as well as having Chris host our Supernatural Saturday block.  Ever since early 2011, Chris has brought his loyal legion of fans to BBC AMERICA through his successful Nerdistspecials and, as America’s #1 Doctor Who fan, hosting countless Doctor Who-related events for our channel.”
 
Chris Hardwick says: “As a huge fanboy of nerd culture stuff, we at the Nerdist Podcast gush about the things we love constantly, and the fact that BBCA lets us do that AS OUR JOBS puts me forever in their debt. They have been exceptional at allowing us to grow the show and its audience. Plus, I’ve met THREE Doctors since I started working there. Perry Simon doesn’t know this yet, but I’m going to hug him REALLY HARD next time I see him-until it gets awkward. Six extra seconds oughta do it.”
