You’re right. By “regenerate” we mean “wait until somebody ejects a new blob of sentient fat.”
(rebloggable by request)
guys look i found it. the doctor who tumblr.
Because we can’t not reblog all of these posts.
The doctor who tumblr made a little bit of a mistake
‘Angels take Manhattan’
You know how when you’re trying to make custom avatars on Twitter while doing giveaways for prizes on Facebook while you’re preparing posts for Tumblr so you try copying+pasting text from an old Photoshop file into a new one while trying to sync up communication with the office in London to post the announcement about the 50th Anniversary return of David Tennant and Billie Piper so you forget to rewrite the text on the Photoshop file? Don’t you hate when that happens?
Thanks for the catch. (For real.) Because we totally wouldn’t have noticed this until, probably, like, the 50th anniversary.
Somebody sent us an ask wanting to know what tags we track.
The answer is ‘a lot’.
And that’s because this blog is about Doctor Who as seen through your eyes (and collectively, you have a lot of eyes.)
Even if you don’t see a certain DW tag listed, it doesn’t mean that we aren’t paying attention.
(Some of these tags are for other BBC America shows but we hope you still get the idea.)
Update: if you haven’t seen it yet, the video in this post was also part of a secret giveaway of Doctor Who merch.
mightequinn asked: You guys clearly need to send Craig a new TARDIS.
You should see the FLURRY of emails that were sent between us as soon as that happened! It looked like this.
itsatimemachine asked: Why are you guys working at 3:35 in the morning?
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually — from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint….
Ah, who are we kidding. It’s late where we are (East Coast U.S.)
But it’s a big weekend for Doctor Who and we want to be prepared.
The new trailer for Doctor Who goes up on EW.com later today (Saturday).
And there’s more stuff coming late Sunday.
It’s an exciting time for us.
But you’re right. Time to slip off to bed.
whyruntothetardis asked: That post about a new trailer tomorrow said 2pm Eastern Standard Time. Aren't we on daylight savings time now? Shouldn't that say Eastern Daylight Time?
Wibbly wobbly timey wimey.
(Post updated. Thanks!)
savingcheerleaders asked: Doctor Who Official, that 'not-to-be-used-as-a-reaction-gif' gif that you just made says 'I see don't what you did there'.
No it doesn’t.
(Okay maybe it did.)
But, what do you mean ‘someone you don’t remember?’ That’s just a blank picture! , swirlingindarkness
fluxperpetua asked: You're probably getting tons of ask about it at the moment, but might we have a super HD version of that teaser poster? ^^
Yup! We’re uploading it now!
PSA: If you ever get a Tumblr ask or fanmail from ‘dwtumblrhere’ it’s actually from us at the Doctor Who Tumblr.
So here’s proof. And a confession. In a single post. Presented by an Adipose. Which we made while watching TV in the big BBC America living room.
Ok. That should finally do it.
The Snowmen begins at 9/8c.
Ok, we know this is fan run (Adipose should be fans, he saved them.) But are these fans (Adipose?) employed by the Beeb, or just authorized/authorised? How should we define and interpret “Official?”
We are employed by BBC America. We sit in the BBC Worldwide office in New York.
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.
