Do y’all remember those amazing photos of Matt & Karen at Comic-Con with the Cosplay Crew (including Friend of the Show Erik?) Yeah? Well, apparently, so does Matt Smith as he still has them on his phone!
Matt Smith on Graham Norton
As you know from yesterday’s post, Matt Smith was on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Here are two clips which will give you a sense of how things went. Long time viewers of the Late Late Show will not be surprised that things did not go according to plan. But then again, the fact that the show feels unscripted is part of its charm.
Craig is a big fan of Doctor Who, and it shows. For me, one of the highlights was seeing Matt Smith do the Secretariat dance. For those who do not know, ever since the Secretariat film, Craig has had a Secretariat costume come out and dance for the crowd during the tweets and email segment.
Check it out! It’s the “coming soon” video from the BBC. Please note that it includes not only a quick peek at the Doctor Who Christmas special, but also a look at some of the other project for Doctors 9, 10, and 11. Oh, and Mark Gatiss. (Yes, this video is made of win, as they say.)
WonderCon was very busy and that isn’t generally my thing, but for Doctor Who I drive to Los Angeles by myself yearly. So, off to San Francisco and a ruddy great crowded Con I went…with my family in tow, no less. Yes. My Mum, Dad, Brother, and Husband. Of the lot, I’m the only one with two boxes of comic books in my closet (WonderCon is a Comic Book convention…technically.) Only my Husband and myself had ever been to a Con before. Witness the power of Doctor Who!
Once we were seated in the auditorium, (and after a quick viewing of the trailer) the fellow from BBC America did his spiel, and then we saw a greeting from Matt and Karen specifically filmed for this showing. And then…the show began and the audience went a bit insane for a moment.
Stand by for my usual brand of disjointed reactions…below the fold.
