YAHTZEE: Doctor Who Pandorica Edition lands exclusively at the Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 convention this July. The Pandorica Edition YAHTZEE game allows fans to recall the iconic Doctor Who fifth series finale, which introduced the mysterious chamber hidden under Stonehenge, while rolling classic dice combinations such as a Full House and Large Straight. This game comes complete with a Pandorica stylized box that serves as a dice shaker, custom Roman numeral translucent dice, score pad, pencil and instructions. Supplies won’t last, however – this is a special edition item fans won’t want to miss.
“We are very excited about this collaboration and we believe this exclusive game is a perfect fit for Doctor Who fans,” says John M. Davis, President, USAopoly, Inc.
YAHTZEE: Doctor Who Pandorica Edition will only be sold at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 convention, available exclusively in the BBC AMERICA booth (#4129) on preview night, and then in the BBC America booth and the USAopoly booth (#1017) for the rest of the convention. It will retail for $20.00 (limit two per customer).

A few weeks ago we had a jumbo-sized problem: BBC America has a jumbotron at their booth for this year’s San Diego Comic Con, and they had nothing to put on it!
So we asked you guise to send us your fanart and fan videos to play during the event, and we got an incredible amount of amazing submissions.
We wish we could use all of the artwork but to make sure our choices are diverse in medium, feeling, subject, etc., we’re going to have to start narrowing them down to see which ones we’re going to use. Picture a team of adipose frantically running around an office throwing papers left and right, taking phone calls, holding meetings, other officey-type stuff. It’s going to be just like that.
We’ll let you all know when we select the pieces that will be featured, so look forward to that in the coming weeks.
Oh, and, again…
It’s getting close to that time of the year again: a time for Fourth Doctor’s scarves and Eleventh Doctor’s bowties, for flights and long lines and badges and lanyards, for free swag and merch tables, and a lot of sonic screwdrivers.
For some of us this happens every day, but for others it means Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 is coming!
This year, much like last, the BBC booth will have a giant video wall displaying a ton of Whovian fan art and fan videos.
In honor of the new Series, we’ll be featuring fan work of the new Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald. Here’s how to submit-
1. If you have fanart of the Twelfth Doctor and/or Clara, save it at its highest resolution, under 9MB (otherwise we won’t receive it), as a JPEG or TIFF file.
2. Send it to artsubmissions@BBC.com and include your Tumblr username.
3. If your artwork is chosen to be featured, we’ll respond with a release form for you to sign and send back to us.
1. Fan videos must not include any actual content (clips) from the show, they must be original fan creations (cosplaying while acting out a skit, a Twelfth Doctor animation or stop-motion, etc.)
2. Upload your video to wetransfer.com or a similar file-hosting website and send it to artsubmissions@BBC.com (please include your Tumblr username and e-mail address.)
3. If your video is chosen to be featured, we’ll respond with a release form for you to sign and send back to us.
Deadline for submissions: June 16th, 12PM EST
Due to the volume of submissions we’re accepting up to 3 pieces of artwork per person. Please send each one as a separate e-mail.
Hello, Doctor Who Tumblr here. We recently made a post about how excited we are to have Whovian fan art and videos featured at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014. We received a lot of questions over the weekend and thought we’d address some of them here:
BBC America is accepting fan art and videos from anywhere in all of space and time, feel free to submit no matter what country (or planet, or dimension) you’re from.
The maximum video dimensions are 1920 x 1080. As far as length goes, longer video submissions should be cut down to 30-seconds or less. The video wall is silent so it’s fine for videos to have any sort of music in them but unfortunately we won’t be able to hear it (we’ll look up at the screen and sing “doo-wee-oooo” to make up for that.)
BBC America is looking to specifically feature the Twelfth Doctor and Clara at the convention in celebration of the new Series. Video pieces or photos featuring DW cosplayers dressed as them are very welcome.
The video wall is a featured part of the BBC America booth and is quite visible on the con floor. It highlights content from BBC America shows as well as information about related events at the convention.
Yes – at previous events submitting artists have been identified with their Tumblr usernames.
That’s all for now. Still have a question? Our inbox is always open, feel free to send us an ask, and don’t forget that the deadline for submissions is June 16th at 12PM ET.
