Oh! Hello Tumblr!

This is your Saturday afternoon announcement that we will be livetumblring tonight’s 8pm ET BBC America Premiere of Doctor Who: Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS.
We’ll be online from 8/7c (well, all day, actually) until the end of the broadcast to reblog your gifs and fan art and reactions off of the ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS’ tags on Tumblr.

For those of you who have never been to a livetumblring before, it’s where we post moments from the episode to the blog just as they’re happening on the broadcast.

And we’re sorry, we’re so sorry but because we’re livetumblring in real time — there is no way for us to avoid posting spoilers.

If you’re going to be liveposting (or if you’ve just finished watching the episode in the UK) be sure to tag your posts ‘spoilers’. We’ll be using the tags ‘spoilers’ ‘dw spoilers’ and ‘Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS’ so install Tumblr Savior if you can.
If you’re browsing your dashboard on your mobile or if you don’t understand the Tumblr Savior stuff, you can also unfollow us and then refollow us after the episode.

After Doctor Who, you can watch a new episode of Orphan Black on both BBC America and SPACE, and then on BBC America, Chris Hardwick’s guests on The Nerdist are Jospeh Gordon Levitt and Gillian Jacobs.

We are super excited that we get to explore a bit more of the TARDIS in tonight’s episode so we started a thing asking you to share what room you think would be in the TARDIS.

There are huuuuuuunnnnnndreds of posts already on the ‘My TARDIS’ tag and we’re blown away by how imaginative and brilliant and clever you all are.

We highly suggest giving the tag page a look see to see what your fellow Whovians are imagining. We’ll be reblogging a bunch of them throughout the weekend.
April 27th is also the birthdays of a certain actor named Jenna Louise Coleman (hence all the Jenna gifs) and a certain producer/director/writer/creator named Russell T. Davies (hence the entire Doctor Who series we all have been enjoying since 2005.) Happy birthday to the both of you!

And Happy Saturday to everyone else! We’ll see you at 8/7c for tonight’s all new episode of Doctor Who on BBC America!

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.”
