The Science of Doctor Who premieres August 4 at 9pm on BBC America and SPACE (in Canada)

BBC America is producing a new batch of Doctor Who specials this August and we’re excited about this one in particular. Why?

Only because they got some of our favorite physicists and scientists to talk about the “science” of Doctor Who, that’s why!!!!! ヽ(^。^)ノ

Think The Doctor’s Time Traveling is science-fiction… or science-fact? Find out in this exclusive sneak peek at BBC America’s All New Special THE SCIENCE OF DOCTOR WHO before the World Premiere *** Saturday Aug 4 at 9/8c *** only on BBC America. Immediately followed by the World Premiere of THE NERDIST: TRIBUTE TO SCIENCE at 10/9c.

Here, join DW Executive Producer and lead writer STEVEN MOFFAT plus big-time scientists like Theoretical Physicists MICHIO KAKU & JIM AL KHALILI and Space Scientist MAGGIE ADERIN POCOCK as they debate the possibility of time travel using Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity and wormholes.

Livetumblring, Doctor Who Marathon, Doctor Who Animated Scene, Doctor Who: Best of the Companions (so much going on this weekend)

Hellloooooo! We’re back!

Oh it feels so good to say that again. We kind of imagine this is what it feels like when Rory comes back from the dead.

Of course, some of us still aren’t safe. If you’re on the East Coast (like us) be careful. Stock up on cups of coffee, jammy dodgers, and jelly babies. Don’t go outside. Stay inside and watch the BBC America Doctor Who marathon. (ratings up 5000%!)

We had a debate among us earlier wondering which scene of Doctor Who is most like a hurricane: the solar storm in The Almost People or the storm at sea in Curse of the Black Spot.

Ultimately both are probably wrong. The threat of being stuck without TV or internet during the premiere of Let’s Kill Hitler is more like Midnight.

(Basically, we were looking for a reason to insert Jethro again)

Pending steady access to electricity and jelly babies, we will be livetumbrling both the East Coast and West Coast premieres of “Let’s Kill Hitler”!

For those new to Doctor Who Tumblr what we do is post gifs and caps and quotes as they happen in the episode. We’ll post from 9-10pm EDT take a break for a bit, put up a few non-spoilery buffer posts for anyone rejoining us for the west coast premiere, and then we’ll do it again at 9pm PDT.

We love a good livetumblring. But before that, there are other matters to attend to…

BBC America and Doctor Who are now available on Cablevision!

If you have Cablevision in your household, you were probably without BBC America and stuck watching Doctor Who on somebody’s sucky live stream this Spring. WELL SUCK ON LIVE STREAMS NO MORE! And that’s great timing because…

There’s a Doctor Who Marathon on BBC America today and tomorrow!

It includes the first half of Series 6, the Doctor Who Specials, and even — wait for it — episodes of Doctor Who Confidential.

Of course, if you’re a British Subject, you’re probably reading this and saying “What are those yanks going on about? What’s a cable-vision?” and “They don’t get Confidential on their telly!?! huff huff huff!” (Okay fine. You don’t sound like that. Which is a shame b/c we Americans all sound like The Hills and Jersey Shore.)

And even though you get Confidential on TV, we do get one neat thing…

BBC America to show exclusive animated scene from Let’s Kill Hitler

It’s a chase sequence involving Amy Pond and Rory Williams. Here’s an image from the animation:

See more images at Teh Facebooks. So after seeing Let’s Kill Hitler…

BBC America is premiering the third of the Doctor Who Specials: The Best of the Companions

So there’s a lot going on. We’ll be blogging and reblogging all weekend long as usual so keep up with your posts and tags and asks.

In summary: Do everything we tell you, don’t ask stupid questions, and don’t wander off.

And see you tomorrow for the premiere of Let’s Kill Hitler!

Rory & the Doctor: Exclusive Sneak Peek From BBC America’s Original ‘Doctor Who’ Specials

Go inside the complex, multi-faceted relationship between the Doctor and beloved companion Rory Williams (AKA Mr. Pond, “The Boy Who Waited” and “The Nose”) with commentary from celebrity Doctor Who fans like Paul F. Tompkins, Scott Ian, Hugh Douglass and Mark Sheppard in the Doctor Who Original Special: “Best of the Companions,” Saturday August 27, immediately following the U.S. Premiere of the midseason return, “Let’s Kill Hitler” at 9/8c

The Song From The Amanda Palmer + Reggie Watts Video is by tumblr Whovian stopitsgingertime

We thought Allegra’s song was credited in the BuzzFeed post but it isn’t. So here’s the original:

stopitsgingertime:

Say Hello

I stole him
and he stole me
He’s my Doctor, he’s my thief 
And he told me I was the most beautiful thing he’d ever seen

You stole me
and I stole you
And we flew off to do the things we’d always say we’d do
But there was one thing I wanted to say to you

Say hello, say hello
Say, Hello Doctor, I love you so

Say hello, say hello
Say that being alive is only sad when it’s over

I wanted to see the universe
So I stole a Time Lord and ran away
And we’ve been running and we’ve been flying
And we haven’t looked back since that day 

I’ll never forget the time we talked
And I want you to know how I feel
Companions may leave, they may come and go
But what we have is real

I’ll always be your best friend
I’ll be here until the end

Say hello, say hello
I’ll say, hello, Doctor, I love you so

Say hello, say never fear
Say that I will always be here
and it will never be over

This is why we love Doctor Who fans on Tumblr. YOU ARE ALL SO FRIKKIN TALENTED!!!

Also Anglophenia did an interview with her a few weeks back. Go readeth.

Now I’m watching the Doctor Who special

onehandclap:

I miss this show so much! And watching these clips is making me remember how great the beginning of season 5 was. I think I need to rewatch it too. So much television in my life! I’ve got to watch as much as possible before I get back to school and no longer have any free time.

Also, I’m loving the people they got to contribute to this special. Chris Hardwick, Alison Haislip, Mark Sheppard. Some of my favorite people.
