So this Friday, Matt Smith and Doctor Who Executive Producer Caro Skinner will take the stage at MCM London Comic Con to talk about all things Who. The good news is that the panel will be livestreamed!
To mark the launch of the DVD of Doctor Who Series 7 Part 1 on Friday 26th October Matt Smith will attend MCM’s London Comic Con.
The hugely popular British actor who plays the eleventh incarnation of the Time Lord will participate in a panel discussion with the show’s Executive Producer, Caroline Skinner. For a chance to hear the inside gossip on their favourite show, fans will need to head to the event’s MCM Theatre.
The panel discussion will also be freely available online so all Doctor Who fans can tune in. Matt Smith will also sign 100 copies of the new DVD. The first 100 people to purchase the new series’ DVD at the BBC Worldwide stand will receive a wristband for the signing at the venue’s Signing Hall.
We will have an embed of the livestream available on this blog on Friday at around 4pm London Time (11am Eastern/8am Pacific)
For the second year running, there was a Whovian Sunday at San Diego Comic-Con. Sonic screwdriver-brandishing fans packed Hall H for a panel that featured Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, lead writer/executive producer Steven Moffat, and executive producer Caroline Skinner. The atmosphere was as electric as panels past, with zings of oddball wit from überfan and moderator Chris Hardwick from The Nerdist.
But amongst all of the cheers and celebration, there was an inescapable feeling of sadness. After all, the upcoming season of Doctor Who will see the departure of the Doctor’s beloved companions the Ponds – played by Gillan and Darvill.
Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith appeared to be every bit the rock star as he graced the stage for TV Guide Magazine’s Fan Favorites panel.
The panel’s roster included stars like Community‘s Joel McHale, Castle‘s Nathan Fillion, Nikita‘s Maggie Q, Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Posey, Spartacus‘ Liam McIntyre, Fringe‘s Jasika Nicole, Grimm‘s David Biuntoli, and The Walking Dead‘s Sarah Wayne Callies.
But all eyes were on Matt as the audience took to the podium to ask questions. And we mean that literally every fan question was directed at Matt. (If we downed a shot for every time the words “This question is for Matt Smith” were said during today’s TV Guide Fan Favorites panel, we’d wouldn’t be posting right now. We’d be hospitalized.)
This is a great writeup. Go read it over at Anglophenia
Just a friendly reminder that we’ll be livetumblring the Doctor Who panel at Comic-Con this afternoon so if you’ll be in Hall H, be sure to post, tweet, share what you’ve got (and tag it.)
*IF* for some reason Tumblr goes down again during the panel, head immediately over to our friends at twitter.com/anglophenia b/c they’ll have the best seats in the house and will be tweeting and picspamming from the front row.
(They also happen to be the other ones who will be posting the trailer as soon as it plays in San Diego.)
We’ll be livetumblring the Doctor Who panel at Comic-Con on Sunday (12:30 Pacific/3:30 Eastern) at the end of which we’ll post the trailer for the second half of Doctor Who Series 6.
