Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and Steven Moffat attend 72nd Annual George Foster Peabody Awards (May 20, 2013)
Well, that was unexpected.
So… The Way Station, the bar with the TARDIS, is about 4 blocks from my apartment and I go there several times a week generally. I have friends there and usually, during the week it’s quiet(ish) enough for me to sit in my “nook” (back next to the TARDIS) and write.
On Sundays they show movies or TV shows and when Doctor Who is airing, they show the previous night’s episode. Today they were showing last night’s season finale… aaaaand we had some surprise visitors.
Holy cow did everyone’s teeth hit the floor.
I really hope everyone was on their best behavior and Matt and Steven didn’t feel too overwhelmed. Also, apologies to Sue Vertue on behalf of the fan who forgot herself and basically followed Sue into the TARDIS/bathroom. We are all beside ourselves to host you at our favorite bar and hope we weren’t too much for you. But then, I suppose, if you decide to visit a known Doctor Who bar when they are showing the season finale in order to watch the screening, I imagine you know what you’re getting yourself into.
Anyway, thank you so much for coming. It’s personal things like this that make such a HUGE fandom feel so small and special.
Steven Moffat says thank you to the crowd at The Way Station (by filthysize)
I had heard via The Way Station FB, and through various Twitter sources, that there was a chance that Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue would be at the bar tonight to watch the finale of this latest series of “Doctor Who.”
There were three officially scheduled showings: 1:00 PM, 3:30 PM, and 5:00 PM. But then it was suggested by the lovely folks at The Way Station that they could maybe do a 6:30 showing as well (5:00 and 6:30/6:45 are more their usual screening times). Sue Vertue then asked if there was in fact going to be a 6:30 showing.
So I planned my day.
Michael is psyched to sit with sue, Steven Moffat and Matt SMITH at the Doctor Who season finale today at The Way Station

During our last contest giving away our autographed poster from Doctor Who, many of you sent us messages of concern that we were giving up our favorite part of the Doctor Who Tumblr office.
That was so cool and sweet and completely unexpected.
And it got us thinking — what could we put in its place?
And that’s when we realized… we want a new set of autographs. YOUR autographs.
Make a fan sign, a new piece of fan art, a selfie with your sonic, with your TARDIS, with your friends, in cosplay, not in cosplay — whatever you want with your Tumblr url (and a short message if you’d like.)
Post it to your blog using the tag ‘the doctor who tumblr asked for my autograph’.
And just to make sure that we receive your post, you can also submit it through this form: http://bit.ly/15RHIXe
We’re going to grab the images off of this tag (one per blog) and use them to create a ginormous poster that we’ll put on our wall.
A few tips: keep your message short, use a thick marker or crayon to ensure that it shows up when printed (we think each image will be about the size of a 3x5 index card), and use good lighting so that we can see your face (a simple desk or table lamp should do.)
We anticipate being able to assemble and print this out the weekend of the Doctor Who Series 7 finale but we may push that deadline back if there’s good reason to.
We want EVERYBODY who works on the show who walks through the doors of BBC America to see how much love there is for this show and for this fandom.
And thank you!!! We can’t wait to see our new poster!!!
