When you were younger did either of you have imaginary friends? If so, what sorts of adventures did you go on/pretend to have?
MATT: Yes, I had an imaginary kangaroo friend called Roo.
MATT: I was very clumsy and I used to break things and my mum went, you know, “Who’s done that?” And I would say, “It’s the kangaroo!” I was only three. [JENNA laughs] Honestly, swear to God! I had an imaginary friend called Roo. [To JENNA] Did you have one?
JENNA: Nah, I didn’t but I wish I did.
MATT: Hey, come hang out with Roo anytime.
JENNA [laughs]: Aw, thanks. You’d share Roo with me?
MATT: Yeah he’s great.
JENNA: I’d like to meet Roo.
MATT: Oh he’s wild!
Hi Matt and Jenna!! I love your Doctor so much Matt and I can’t wait to see what Jenna brings to the table! :)
To the both of you, how does it feel to see cosplayers put a lot of time, money and effort into essentially copying and wanting to be you? Matt’s doctor has become a really popular one to do and even many Oswin’s have popped up. Do you find it flattering? Anything you’d like to say to the many doctor who cosplayers out there?
MATT: Yeah, I love cosplay. If you go to Comic Con, all the guys are in bow ties and tweed jackets or David’s old coat. Or they’ll be in an Oswin dress.
JENNA: I saw, the day before I moved to Cardiff to start this job, a little boy, a mini Doctor! A mini Doctor like literally walked past me with a screwdriver and everything. Just walking past me on the street.
MATT: I think it’s brilliant and it makes those events even more exciting for us to see everyone dressed up.
Hello Matt and Jenna, this is Marla reporting all the way from south of the Equator;;
What bands would you recommend me to listen to considering the fact that your taste in music is exquisite?
JENNA: Yeah, I’ve heard a lot about them. They play in Camden right?
JENNA: I like Oasis.
If you had to choose the first song someone would ever listen to, what would it be?
MATT: I listen to it all the time. Herb Alpert, “This Guy’s in Love with You.” It’s great. Get it in your ears.
JENNA: I’m gonna go for “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5 because I used to dance to it in my bedroom and it always makes me happy.
MATT: Good song!
Hello Matt and Jenna! A quick doodle for you. My question is: Which of your characters would win in a snowball fight?
MATT: Pfft, there’s only one winner…
MATT & JENNA [simultaneously]: Me.
MATT: Are you joking?? [JENNA: Are you kidding?]
MATT: Alright, let me tell you the advantages I have. Wisdom, 900 years. Height. Pace.
JENNA: He is clumsier!
MATT: Man, there wouldn’t even be a fight.
JENNA: No The Doctor would get it wrong. He’d melt it by accident. Like, you’d think you’re gonna do it really really well and then suddenly something would go wrong. Or you’d get distracted or you’d come up with this incredible, amazing plan and then like stumble over a rock and then I’d win.
MATT: Definitely not…. Agree to disagree? Doctor. Come on, we all know Doctor.
A question for both Matt and Jenna:
What secret hidden talents have you got that we may not necessarily get to see on the show?
MATT: I’ve got quite a few actually.
MATT: The secret super talent? I am telepathic but I just don’t tell anyone.
Hello, this is for Matt and Jenna-Louise.
If you could master any one skill instantly, what would it be?
JENNA [immediately]: Piano!
MATT: Oh yeah. Piano is a big one. That’s a big one.
JENNA: I just, I love it.
MATT: Yeah, piano would be amazing.
Has your experience with the show thus far met your expectations?
I don’t really know if you can ever really know what to expect. I mean it’s such high energy and it goes so quick. I didn’t know what to expect.
These are for both:
What are on your Christmas lists?
MATT: Record player. Old vintage record player.
JENNA: Oh that’s cool! I have not got that far yet. Just lots of nice food with all my family.

Part Two begins in about half an hour.
The Doctor Who tumblr just told me to go to sleep.
I shall now go to sleep.
Because we CARE! And because Whovians can never really seem to get the hang of restful.
… because it’s getting late in the Eastern U.S. and is so-late-it’s-nearly-morning in the U.K.
We’re going to post the rest of Matt and Jenna’s responses at 11am EST (8am Pacific, 4p London)

Thanks for sticking with us as we started waaaaaaay late.
What can we expect for the rest of the season?!
Matt: Can’t reveal much but there are eight episodes [and the Christmas Special] on their way!
I LOVE YOU GUYS <3
MATT: Thank you very much! We love you too!
MATT: I don’t know, many things. One told me I look like a hedgehog.
JENNA [laughs]: A hedgehog?
MATT: A pet hedgehog. This was in Wales. She said I looked like her pet hedgehog.
JENNA: That is the weirdest.
MATT: One, hedgehogs are flea ridden. Who has a hedgehog for a pet? And two, that is bordering on insulting.
JENNA: You know it’s funny because, you’d think this would be the weirdest one [for me], but it’s not because it’s true: “So you’re a Dalek?” That’s kind of the question I get asked the most.
