AHAHAHAHA I GOT IN TO MATT SMITH’S PANEL
I spent all morning shopping and meeting Rooster Teeth, and then thought “you know what, I’m gonna try for Matt” and then I freaking managed to slip in at the last second.
It was awesome.
They talked about part 2 of series 7, joked about stuff that happened on set and then the audience gave Matt a Tardis birthday cake.
Unfortunately there was a widespread internet outage that kept us from being able to post to Tumblr (or Twitter, oddly) so we couldn’t share a link to today’s Q&A livestream with Matt Smith and Caro Skinner.
Video of the Q&A is being edited and will be posted to the newly regenerated Doctor Who YouTube channel next week. We’ll post the video here as soon as it becomes available.
Also: did you know we keep a Twitter account as a backup to this Tumblr? We just thought you should know.
So this Friday, Matt Smith and Doctor Who Executive Producer Caro Skinner will take the stage at MCM London Comic Con to talk about all things Who. The good news is that the panel will be livestreamed!
To mark the launch of the DVD of Doctor Who Series 7 Part 1 on Friday 26th October Matt Smith will attend MCM’s London Comic Con.
The hugely popular British actor who plays the eleventh incarnation of the Time Lord will participate in a panel discussion with the show’s Executive Producer, Caroline Skinner. For a chance to hear the inside gossip on their favourite show, fans will need to head to the event’s MCM Theatre.
The panel discussion will also be freely available online so all Doctor Who fans can tune in. Matt Smith will also sign 100 copies of the new DVD. The first 100 people to purchase the new series’ DVD at the BBC Worldwide stand will receive a wristband for the signing at the venue’s Signing Hall.
We will have an embed of the livestream available on this blog on Friday at around 4pm London Time (11am Eastern/8am Pacific)
Steven Moffat, Caro Skinner, director Nick Hurran, and Production Designer Michael Pickwoad talk about the making of The Angels Take Manhattan and the future of Series 7.
A beautiful behind the scenes look at Karen and Arthur’s last days on set.
You have to watch this. You really do.
As we prepare to say farewell to Amy and Rory, the cast and Execs discuss their departure.
Busy doing press for his scifi action flick Looper, Rian Johnson hopped onto Reddit for an Ask Me Anything, where he was of course asked about all manner of things.
Having already directed several episodes of TV, Johnson was asked if he was interested in doing any more and he responded with:
I’d love to do a Game of Thrones.
But what I’d really kill to try, although it would be terrifying because I’m such a big fan of it? Doctor Who.
Doctor Who isn’t afraid to let big supporters come on-board, as it has done with Neil Gaiman penning two episodes, including one coming up this season.
Rian’s ability to tell stories with gorgeous visuals on a small-screen budget can already be seen on his two Breaking Bad episodes from season three and five already.
This is coming on the heels off another big name, Peter Jackson, saying he’d want to have a go at directing. Executive Producer Caro Skinner has already responded to Jackson:
It is beyond wonderful that Peter is a fan of the show and it’s beyond flattering that he’d even think about it… I’m absolutely sure that we couldn’t afford him but, you know, we can always negotiate. His enthusiasm is just fantastic of course.
And according to The Wikato Times, Luther creator Neil Cross has already volunteered his services to pen a script for Jackson. He too lives in New Zealand, and has scripted an episode for the second half of this season.
Matt Smith will be appearing at MCM Expo London Comic Con at ExCel on Friday 26 October. The Eleventh Doctor will be in a panel alongside the show’s executive producer, Caroline Skinner, at the MCM theatre, chatting about all things Doctor Who (except the fiftieth anniversary, probably, unless he wants a stern telling off from Steven Moffat). It will also be streamed online for any fans that can’t make it.
He’ll be launching the new Doctor Who Series 7, Part 1 DVD (on general release 29 October). The first 100 people who purchase the DVD from the BBC Worldwide stand will be able to have it signed by the man himself.
