Twitter Commentary for The Day of the Doctor

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 06/20/2014 - 4:09am

The Day of the Doctor was one of the biggest episodes in Doctor Who’s history and it’s repeated tonight on BBC Three at 7.45pm. For the first time ever we’ll be providing a special twitter commentary for the adventure as it’s broadcast, bringing you a broad range of photos, facts, related links and much more to accompany the screening.

We hope it will enhance your enjoyment of The Day of the Doctor but equally we aim to make sure the tweets will be enjoyable and fun, even if you’re not watching the episode.

If you’re not already following the official Doctor Who twitter account, check it out at @bbcdoctorwho and hit ‘follow’ to make sure you’re up-to-date with all the latest news, new series info and lots more.

Tonight’s twitter commentary will be a first so after the event we’d love to know what you thought of it. You can either tweet us or drop us a line at thedoctor@bbc.co.uk Tell us what you think we get right and where we could improve with twitter commentaries.

But for the meantime, don’t forget to follow us on @bbcdoctorwho so you can enjoy the twitter commentary for the awesome epic that is The Day of the Doctor!

Julie Gardner and John Barrowman Awarded MBEs

BBC - Doctor Who - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 9:37am

As we reported over the weekend, one of Doctor Who’s former executive producers, Julie Gardner and John Barrowman (Captain Jack in Doctor Who and Torchwood) have both been awarded MBEs in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Julie said she was honoured by the award and commented, ‘I have filmed all over the world. But the talent, stamina and sheer fun of the writers, cast and crews I’ve worked with in Wales is beyond compare. I am lucky; I get to keep this award. But I am accepting it for all those brilliant people who have made my job such an absolute joy, and for my dad who will be the talk of Glynneath. My proudest achievement has been to successfully bring Doctor Who to Wales. From there, through Torchwood, Casualty and Da Vinci's Demons, Wales' position in the global television industry goes from strength to strength. I am hugely proud to have been a part of that journey and will work hard so that this is just the beginning.’

John said, ‘I can’t tell you how honoured I am to get this MBE, to be recognised by Her Majesty and also by the United Kingdom because that’s where I can consider my home.’ He added, ‘I am chuffed… Thank you very much, everybody! And to the fans: this is also for you guys. It’s amazing! Thank you!’

Doctor Who Wins Banff Awards!

BBC - Doctor Who - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 7:31am

It’s been a great week for Doctor Who over at the Banff World Media Festival in Canada. The show won the 2014 Rockie Award for the ‘Best Science Fiction and Action’ programme before triumphing in the prestigious ‘Best Scripted’ category.

The jury who vote for the awards comprises hundreds of media executives from around the world and nominees are also drawn from across the globe. So it’s particularly fitting for the show to win the awards in the week that it’s announced that a Doctor Who World Tour will begin this August.

Last month Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor scooped a BAFTA Television Award and earlier in the year the show found success at the BAFTA TV Craft Awards. The Doctor returns to BBC One in August and you can catch the teaser trailer for the new series now!
