We’re at San Diego Comic-Con!
YAHTZEE: Doctor Who Pandorica Edition lands exclusively at the Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 convention this July. The Pandorica Edition YAHTZEE game allows fans to recall the iconic Doctor Who fifth series finale, which introduced the mysterious chamber hidden under Stonehenge, while rolling classic dice combinations such as a Full House and Large Straight. This game comes complete with a Pandorica stylized box that serves as a dice shaker, custom Roman numeral translucent dice, score pad, pencil and instructions. Supplies won’t last, however – this is a special edition item fans won’t want to miss.
“We are very excited about this collaboration and we believe this exclusive game is a perfect fit for Doctor Who fans,” says John M. Davis, President, USAopoly, Inc.
YAHTZEE: Doctor Who Pandorica Edition will only be sold at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 convention, available exclusively in the BBC AMERICA booth (#4129) on preview night, and then in the BBC America booth and the USAopoly booth (#1017) for the rest of the convention. It will retail for $20.00 (limit two per customer).
If you’re going to be at SDCC, make sure to pick up this exclusive Doctor Who edition of a classic game! We’re having a lot of fun with it already here at DW Tumblr HQ.
As part of the Doctor Who Comics Day celebrations, writer Nick Abadzis, artist Elena Casagrande, cover artist Alice X. Zhang and Doctor Who comics editor, Andrew James reveal exclusive secrets from the upcoming Tenth and Eleventh Doctor storylines and show never-before-seen art and concept designs.

It’s getting close to that time of the year again: a time for Fourth Doctor’s scarves and Eleventh Doctor’s bowties, for flights and long lines and badges and lanyards, for free swag and merch tables, and a lot of sonic screwdrivers.
For some of us this happens every day, but for others it means Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 is coming!
This year, much like last, the BBC booth will have a giant video wall displaying a ton of Whovian fan art and fan videos.
In honor of the new Series, we’ll be featuring fan work of the new Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald. Here’s how to submit-
1. If you have fanart of the Twelfth Doctor and/or Clara, save it at its highest resolution, under 9MB (otherwise we won’t receive it), as a JPEG or TIFF file.
2. Send it to artsubmissions@BBC.com and include your Tumblr username.
3. If your artwork is chosen to be featured, we’ll respond with a release form for you to sign and send back to us.
1. Fan videos must not include any actual content (clips) from the show, they must be original fan creations (cosplaying while acting out a skit, a Twelfth Doctor animation or stop-motion, etc.)
2. Upload your video to wetransfer.com or a similar file-hosting website and send it to artsubmissions@BBC.com (please include your Tumblr username and e-mail address.)
3. If your video is chosen to be featured, we’ll respond with a release form for you to sign and send back to us.
Deadline for submissions: June 16th, 12PM EST
Due to the volume of submissions we’re accepting up to 3 pieces of artwork per person. Please send each one as a separate e-mail.
Comic Con News: Mark Gatiss & David Bradley Talk Doctor Who
Mark Gatiss has been feverishly working on the Doctor Who special An Adventure in Space and Time. The story will dramatize the events surrounding the creation of the world’s longest running science fiction series.
It’s not been announced exactly when the story will air, but it’s been hinted that we’ll see it before the 50th anniversary episode. Showing how Doctor Who began would be an excellent way to put the 50th into perspective.
Gatiss wanted to tell the story of the creation of Doctor Who. He’d heard so many anecdotal stories, but he wanted to get to the facts and dramatize the story of how this show came to be. He’s always had an eye for historical detail as has been evidenced in his past Doctor Who stories, many of which take place in Earth’s past, so it’ll be exciting to see all the little details that will surely be in this special.
David Bradley, who will be playing William Hartnell in the special, tells how Hartnell was also a stickler for detail. Hartnell insisted on knowing what each control on the TARDIS console was supposed to do. He knew children were smart enough to catch if he pushed a different button to do the same thing in a different episode. The man respected the intelligence of his audience and even though they were children he knew never to underestimate them.
