There are supposed to be words here that make sense but we just can’t get over this video. This video is just… so just.
We’ve made a Facebook event for the Doctor Who panel in Hall H. Join us!
Matt Smith and Karen Gillan make their triumphant return to Comic-Con International for a panel and Q&A moderated by Doctor Who pundit and creator of the Nerdist, Chris Hardwick. They will be joined by star Arthur Darvill, who’s making his first pilgrimage to SDCC, along with award-winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock) and award-winning executive producer Caroline Skinner (The Fades).
We’re excited to share this one. A sonic screwdriver television universal remote.
Can we say that one more time? A SONIC SCREWDRIVER UNIVERSAL REMOTE(!!!)
The Wand Company - known for developing the World’s first infrared remote control magic wand and BBC Worldwide today reveal a must-have accessory for Doctor Who fans – the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control. Join BBC Worldwide in the North American unveiling of the remote control at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, in BBC AMERICA booth #3629 starting preview night July 11 through the end of Comic Con.
A high quality metal replica of the Mark VII Sonic Screwdriver currently used by the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, the new Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control is a gesture-based universal remote control that utilises infrared (IR) technology to manipulate almost all earth-based home entertainment systems - from TVs and iPod docks to DVD/Blu-ray players and beyond.
With a green flashing tip and an impressive four operational modes – including a practice mode – and three memory banks, a total of 39 commands can be stored in the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control, giving the option of operating multiple home entertainment devices with just a different flick of the wrist.
We just played with it at the BBC America booth and it’s pretty easy to use. It’s also really really cool.
In the meantime, stop by the BBC America booth (#3629) at San Diego Comic Con to check it out.
This is the BBC America booth and everything you see in this picture is exclusive Doctor Who merch and Sherlock tees and DVDs.
We’ll post a tour of the booth and the new Doctor Who stuff later today.
Join us for the first ever Doctor Who Tumblr Meetup 2:00-4:00pm, Saturday July 14 at BASIC in San Diego, CA!
So we’ve been excitedly planning this behind everyone’s backs for a while now…
… we’re just glad we can finally start making things public.
We’ve teased this a bit before and started a contest to have a Whovian design the official meetup art. Now we get to say that this meetup is really for real(!)
Three things to note:
We’re so feelingallthefeelings.gif that we get to finally meet the Tumblr Whovian community in person(!) If you have any questions, message us! We’re going to put together a quick FAQ for when we release the RSVP so anything we can answer now would be a help to everyone.
The RSVP link is COMING SOON. We just wanted to get the time and date out there as soon as possible for anyone needing to plan their day.
More to come soon so hold tight!
btw if you’ve never seen a Tumblr ‘pin’ before, it puts the post at the top of your dashboard. To remove the post, click the pin.
Ok, so because of production deadlines we are moving the deadline up to noon EDT Friday June 29 so that we can make a decision and get it out to the printer in time.
So if you have an idea, make your art, post it to your blog, and tag it ‘behold my whovian masterpiece’. If you don’t have art to submit, go and browse the tag and show your favorites some love with a like or a reblog.
Since we have yet to meet a single Whovian who isn’t talented…
Come up with your best design. Post it to your blog. Tag it ‘behold my whovian masterpiece’. On next Friday, June 29th we will pick one winner who’s art will appear on the invitation and giveaways for the meetup!
And just to be clear, we’re not being lazy. We were going to try to make this ourselves, but then we tried to draw Rory Williams and it came out looking like this:
And our friends looked at us like this:
And that’s when we realized that you’re the creative ones!
We’ve been reblogging your fanart and gifs and everything so… YOU SHOULD TOTALLY COME UP WITH THE ART FOR THE DOCTOR WHO TUMBLR MEETUP INVITES AND TOTE BAGS!!!
So do this.
Deadline will be next Friday June 29th!
This is just to gauge interest. The party would be for you, Tumblr Whovians, so we’d only throw it if you think you could make it.
While there are no plans as of yet, we’d probably hold it outside of the convention center (so that everybody could come regardless of ticket) and it would probably be all ages.
We’d all get a chance to meet one another. And we’d definitely create something together that would go up on all of our tumblrs. And there’d be punch and pie*.
* ‘punch and pie’ not guaranteed to be actual punch or pie.
