Recorded live in front of 800 Nerds at San Diego Comic-con on 7/23, this awesometastic mashup of television space travelers yields some of our best podcast moments. Talk of leeches, Steven Moffat Muppets, Karen's love of Lt. Commander Data and how The Doctor and Wesley Crusher pilot their respective ships--namely the TARDIS and the Enterprise (1701-D, of course). THIS. EPISODE. RULES. SIDENOTE: Thanks to BBC America who sponsored the event by allowing the attendees to "enjoy their burritos" which Matt and Karen helped hand out in TARDIS sleeves. Genius! SIDESIDENOTE: There are some spoilers if you haven't seen this season of Doctor Who yet!
BONUS EPISODE for the Whovians! This is the 40-minute Q&A following sneak preview screening of the first two episodes of Doctor Who series 6 to a packed movie theater of Who fans in NY on April 11, 2011. The panel consisted of Steven Moffat (head brainiac), Matt Smith (The Doctor), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond), Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams), Alex Kingston (River Song), Toby Haynes (director), Piers Wenger (EP), Beth Willis (EP). THERE ARE NO SPOILERS IN THIS EPISODE!!! You can listen to it as a pre-game, parking lot BBQ kind of thing before kick-off. (those are correct sports references, right?) Special thanks to the BBC for making this happen! (You in particular, Devin Johnson & Matt Stein) The new series of Doctor Who premieres Saturday, April 23rd at 9/8C on BBC America!
