On Tuesday night (February 26) in Liverpool, BBC Worldwide Showcase paid tribute to one of the BBC’s most successful and long-running global franchises, Doctor Who, as the series heads toward its 50th anniversary this November.
Mark Williams (who played Rory’s father Brian in Season 7) hosted the Doctor Who Showcase Symphonic Spectacular, a celebration of Murray Gold’s epic music score for the show. Led by the boyishly Tennant-esque Ben Foster as conductor, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Sense of Sound choir made Gold’s compositions sound even more mythic. The soloists Daniel Keating-Roberts and Elin Manahan Thomas lent their voices to a couple of the numbers; Thomas was particularly moving with her soprano renderings of “Madman with a Box” and the gorgeous “Abigail’s Song.”

Doctor Who is up for ‘Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show’ which is awesome. We want the show to win that one.
we REALLY want you to win the ‘Favorite TV Fan Following’ Award.
Because you guise deserve this. We just voted for you so go vote for yourselves.
(thx xxgoldie12xx for the heads up!)
Update 4:08EDT: I think we crashed the People’s Choice Awards site.
There should be a separate award for that.

Presenting the “When Is Doctor Who Series 7 Premiering In My Country This Weekend” Click-and-Drag Game!
For those of you who may have missed our post about this weekend’s season premiere of Doctor Who Series 7, we’ve constructed this handy dandy click-and-drag game to tell you where you should watch “Asylum of the Daleks” and when.
Click on each gif and drag it in order to find out when you’ll be watching this weekend’s premiere, who you will watch it with, what character you will cosplay as, and what you will post to Tumblr about it.
Of course, this game is not valid in all territories and if it determines that you should travel three continents just to see the premiere, we suggest taking it less as a directive and more as a modest suggestion.
Of course, if you want all of the Doctor Who Series 7 premiere info now, you could just click through to the Series 7 Premiere Date Superpost instead.
