DOCTOR WHO NYC U.S. Premiere Screening Recap

Couldn’t score a ticket to BBC America’s U.S. Premiere Screening of DOCTOR WHO in NYC last weekend? Don’t worry - here’s your exclusive access inside the historic Ziegfeld theater for all the WHO excitement!

Get up close and personal with stars MATT SMITH (The Doctor), KAREN GILLAN (Amy Pond) and Executive Producer CAROLINE SKINNER as they hit New York - in time-traveling DeLorean cars!! - and joined hundreds of die-hard Whovians for a special screening of season opener “Asylum of the Daleks” and a Q&A with Nerdist host CHRIS HARDWICK.

Then, don’t miss the Broadcast Premiere *** Saturday Sept 1 at 9pm/8c *** on BBC America.

We spot a few familiar Tumblr faces in there (and not just Doctor Puppet)

A Warm Welcome for ‘Doctor Who’ in New York - NYTimes
Our favorite bit from the NYTimes writeup on the WHOyorkcity premiere:
That “Doctor Who” has outgrown its cult-classic status since its 2005 reboot has been increasingly evident, not least in post-broadcast sales: According to a BBC America spokeswoman, the show was the most-downloaded series on iTunes in 2011, eclipsing popular favorites like “Mad Men” and “Glee.” Its devoted fandom was evident in the delighted shrieks that greeted the sight of David Tennant, Mr. Smith’s predecessor as the Doctor, and Burn Gorman, a star of the “Doctor Who” spinoff series “Torchwood,” in a preview trailer for the BBC mini-series “Spies of Warsaw.”

The packed house at the Ziegfeld — the largest single screen cinema in New York City, btw.
And this is why we love this fandom.
