I was lucky enough to attend not one, but two Doctor Who events this month in New York City. It’s incredible how wild Americans are for this BBC show. Here are two sets of photos. The first set is from a Doctor Who DVD signing at Barnes & Noble and the second is from the Doctor Who Season 6 premiere. ENJOY!
Only Doctor Who Fans Should Read Beyond This Point!
BEWARE!!! If you are planning on reading this and aren’t a Doctor Who fan, you may be in big trouble. To a non-Whovian, this article will most definitely sound like a different language. New companions will surely need the TARDIS to help translate, but don’t be alarmed it may be bigger on the inside. If the blue box isn’t working right, you should run out and find a Sonic Screwdriver and some Psychic Paper to get you through this article.
And if all else fails, you can just watch the new 6th season of Doctor Who which premieres on BBC America (check your local listings for the channel) in two parts on April 23rd & 24th @ 9 pm EST.
Doctor Who DVD Signing Photos
On Friday, April 8, 2011, fans had an opportunity to meet the Doctor Who Season 6 cast in Manhattan. Matt Smith (The Doctor), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) & Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams) were at a bookstore signing Doctor Who DVD covers from Season 5.
Doctor Who Season 6 Premiere In NYC
On April 11, 2011, the cast of Doctor Who was in New York City to celebrate the premiere of Season 6. Hundreds of rabid Doctor Who fans lined the streets waiting for a chance to see the cast of the popular BBC series. Instead of a TARDIS, the cast arrived in a classic powder blue Plymouth convertible.
Wild Doctor Who Fans
The photos don’t fully capture how wild and crazy Doctor Who fans are in America. So here’s a video of all of the madness at the Doctor Who Season 6 Premiere.
