There’s a sneak preview of the first 2 hours of Doctor Who Series 6 tonight in Chicago…
…and guess who got lucky enough to get on the RSVP list?!?
This is turning into an annual tradition – last year the husbeast and I got to see the first two hours of Series 5 at a special screening at C2E2. Getting to see events like these on the big screen is great, but getting to experience it with a whole lot of fellow Doctor Who geeks is even better.
I’ll be posting some spoiler-free thoughts on the premiere tomorrow, and a more in-depth review after the weekend. Until then, here’s the Doctor Who Comic Relief spoof from 1999, starring Rowan Atkinson, Richard E Grant, Hugh Grant (as Doctor Who), Jonathan Pryce and Joanna Lumley. (Side note: Hugh Grant was actually offered the part of Doctor Who but turned it down because “he didn’t think it would be a big hit.” That obviously turned out well for him.)
And in honor of the late, great, Elisabeth Sladen, a clip from the first episode I ever saw her in: “The Planet of the Spiders.”
