June 21, 2014 The day I met The Doctor and Amy Pond. Such a perfect day this was. #whovian
As we reported over the weekend, one of Doctor Who’s former executive producers, Julie Gardner and John Barrowman (Captain Jack in Doctor Who and Torchwood) have both been awarded MBEs in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Julie said she was honoured by the award and commented, ‘I have filmed all over the world. But the talent, stamina and sheer fun of the writers, cast and crews I’ve worked with in Wales is beyond compare. I am lucky; I get to keep this award. But I am accepting it for all those brilliant people who have made my job such an absolute joy, and for my dad who will be the talk of Glynneath. My proudest achievement has been to successfully bring Doctor Who to Wales. From there, through Torchwood, Casualty and Da Vinci’s Demons, Wales’ position in the global television industry goes from strength to strength. I am hugely proud to have been a part of that journey and will work hard so that this is just the beginning.’
John said, ‘I can’t tell you how honoured I am to get this MBE, to be recognised by Her Majesty and also by the United Kingdom because that’s where I can consider my home.’ He added, ‘I am chuffed… Thank you very much, everybody! And to the fans: this is also for you guys. It’s amazing! Thank you!’ [x]

We all know her as Liz Ten, of course BUT this is Sophie Okonedo.
And THIS is her in the revival of A Raisin in the Sun
And most importantly, THIS is her winning a Tony Award for her performance; the first time she’s ever been nominated, and the first time she’s ever been on Broadway.
So can we pretty please get some love for this gorgeous girl?!
Great experience meeting Karen Gillan, aka Amy Pond from Doctor Who, this past weekend at Wizard World Atlanta Comic Con. She was so sweet.

David Tennant Introduces The Day of the Doctor
Celebrating David Tennant’s Birthday (18/04/1971) with some of his best appearences
Am I planning on returning? I mean, I don’t know. I mean, I said no before and then totally returned! [LAUGHS] So, don’t trust anything I say! But, I mean, I don’t know. I feel like now the character has been sort of put to bed and I also don’t wanna keep popping back because I want people to be able to go back and watch the stuff that I did at that time and know that, you know, they’ll still be sad by the goodbyes and everything rather then being like, “Oh, she’s gonna come back in a year!” [x]
