Over the weekend I was invited to attend the screening and After Who taping for Doctor Who, Series 8. And incidentally the premier of the brand new 13th (if you’re counting correctly) iteration of The Doctor.
Host Chris Hardwick of The Nerdist, and proclaimed die-hard Whovian, had a panel of fellow nerds on his show, After Who, to talk about all things Doctor related.
Also, Alton Brown from the Food Network, who is a big fan of Who as well.
And Mark Gatiss, who comes from the all important world of Sherlock, but who also writes for Doctor Who.
Dan Starkey, who plays Strax came on the show as himself and as the Sontaran commander and it was such a treat to see answer a few questions as his character. And finally Natalie Morales, from Girls came on the show to join the boys club.
More on the episode later. I’m still digesting everything that happened in Peter Capaldi’s first episode as The Doctor. But I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. Lots to be excited about in the new season!
Special thank you to Josh Ricks for getting us in!
