Last week we held the first Doctor Who Tumblr ‘WHO&A’ with the cast of Doctor Who — Matt Smith and Jenna Louise Coleman. Fan submitted questions by posting them to their own blogs using the tag ‘Tumblr WHO and A’. We then spent the next 48 hours sorting through the (3600+!) questions and then sat down with Matt and Jenna for over an hour so that they could answer some of their favs.
We want to give a HUGE thanks to everyone who took part in the Q&A. This Q&A was the first of its kind and definitely not the last. Every question, every ‘like’ and every ‘reblog’ made this happen. It’s this kind of turnout that makes the cast and crew of Doctor Who want to participate in stuff like this. It also shows how we Whovians are the best fandom on Tumblr.
This here is a megapost of all 37 of their answers. To save everyone’s sanity, we put the whole thing behind a ‘Read More’.
So go ahead — click the Read More to read more:
November 23rd, 1963 - The first episode of Doctor Who airs

STOP IT I’M FREAKING OUT
I am both scared and excited
LET’S NOT FORGET THE DALEK EYESTALK THAT WASHED UP IN FLORIDA
Or the Utah Cave Painting resembling the TARDIS~
let me repost this again
Not to mention the fact Mars is full of water.
Ladies and gentlemen, Gallifrey
Remember those things the Master had? So:
Crack in time?
So now I’m just gonna sit down and wait.
i just nearly fell down the stairs running to tell my dad that the doctor is real and that the internet has proof…
let’s not forget about this painting that has been made in 1959.It looks like Amy and Rory who actually lived somewhere around that time
And what about the REAL LIFE VERSION OF THIS TUMBLR POST that showed up on the DOCTOR WHO TUMBLR in REAL LIFE before we even posted it here to the Doctor Who Tumblr!
I mean it’s REALLY REAL! We scrolled that page and everything! FORGET ALL THE OTHER EVIDENCE!!! IF THE DOCTOR WHO TUMBLR IS REAL THEN THE DOCTOR IS REAL!!!

We don’t have a submit box but we have Fan Mail for submissions. We’d rather reblog you guise than take the
Tumblarity Tumblr love for ourselves.

Enough to fill an Adipose nursery ship.
We’re actually closing in on 200,000(!) Whovians in our Doctor Who Tumblr family. Hmm — maybe we should have a celebration or a contest or do a little dance or something?
Better quality pic from London Expo, my Eighth Doctor with the Dalek. Quite pleased with how the costume looks in pictures that aren’t from my cameraphone. :P
Marry me. Please.
This is the post that started it all. A chance reblog, with a wonderful comment, and it got us talking. One year later, we’re boyfriend and girlfriend, completely in love, devoted to each other in every sense. We often say that we’re each other’s ‘42’, because she is my life, my universe, and my everything.
We’ve had the chance to meet in person and spend three wonderful weeks together. Next year, I’ll be going over to America to spend time with her, and soon, she’ll be living here with me. We’re going to spend the rest of our lives together, and I couldn’t be happier.I really am the luckiest guy in the world. I have a beautiful, intelligent, funny, and well, let’s face it, pretty sort of marvellous girlfriend, and it’s all down to posting a pic on Tumblr! :P
Happy Anniversary, my soulmate. I love you so much! You have my hearts. Plural.
Yeah pretty much.
As goes Tumblr so goes the entire Whoniverse.
I made a thing…
This is perfect in so many ways.
Who are the Fandoms?
They’re online royalty.
If the internet was US Weekly they would always be on the cover.
That one there? That’s Supernatural. They’re one of the weirdest fandoms you will ever meet. Damian followed a Supernatural Blog last year…
They asked me how to spell “Wincest.”
And that little one? That’s Sherlock. They’re totally crazy because their show runner invented psychological torture. The Sherlockians know everybody’s business. They deduce everything about everyone.
That’s why their fanon’s so big. It’s full of deductions.
And fanaticism takes a virtual form in Doctor Who. Don’t be fooled, because they may seem like your typical ship-crazy, feels-having, Sci-fi fandom. But, in reality, they are so much more than that.
They’re the time lords. The stars. The other two are just their little workers.
How do I even begin to explain Doctor Who?
All posts lead to the TARDIS…
The power of Whovians on Tumblr.
you know it’s doctor who day when…
A visual tour of the ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’ tag at this moment.
The U.S. and Canadian premieres of Doctor Who: The Angels Take Manhattan begin in one hour.
The UK BBC One broadcast of the mid-season finale of Doctor Who begins in an hour!
We cannot express enough the importance of tagging your spoilers as ‘spoilers’.
So instead we are expressing it through this gif. And in case the single pin isn’t enough, we’ve added EVEN MORE PINS.
This episode is KIND OF THE BIGGEST EPISODE to hit the fandom IN YEARS so BE SURE TO TAG YOUR SPOILERS.
For everyone watching in time zones after the UK, install Tumblr Savior and blacklist the tags you think people will use tonight. Our personal blacklists include the tags ‘spoilers’ ‘dw spoilers’ ‘the angels take manhattan’ ‘wtf’ and every profane variation of ‘OMG’ that we can think of.
We WILL BE LIVETUMBLRING the U.S. premieres of The Angels Take Manhattan later tonight. We will post our usual warning about an hour out.
