9p Doctor Who Christmas Special - BBC America

Special Enhanced Episode on BBC America

I haven’t seen this anywhere else and I’m not entirely sure what it is, but there was an ad on BBC America for a “special enhanced episode” of OB tomorrow night at 11pm EST! Called “Welcome to the Trip.” Might be a recap of the series given the description, but nonetheless, I haven’t seen it posted anywhere so here’s a heads up :)

youtube

Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany: Putting the special in special effects.* (x

*Thanks to OB visual effects geniuses at Intelligent Creatures for making multiple Tatiana Maslanys possible!

  • Me: Hey Mom, guess what?
  • Mom: What?
  • Me: *clicks on the guide for BBC America*
  • Me: "Look what's happening this week..."
  • Mom: "Oh no..."
  • Me: *keeps clicking*
  • Mom: "Oh no..."
  • Me: *keeps clicking*
  • Mom: "HOW LONG DOES THIS GO?!"
  • Me: "UNTIL CHRISTMAS!"
  • Mom: *shakes her head in despair*
  • Mom: "I'm so glad we have two TVs..."
"Christmas Special"

(n:) \ˈkris-məs ˈspe-shəl\

1. A highly anticipated holiday program in which the BBC plays out it’s revenge on the world for breaking away from the British Empire by killing or replacing a much beloved character. 

2. Nothing to do with Christmas, just an excuse to disturb viewers emotions (see also ‘feels’) and thus create a time bomb that will erupt on tumblr as soon as a 30 second preview is tacked at the end of another series significant special.

Oh yes. Yes it will.

The Doctor Who Tumblr is at New York Comic Con! We bumped into some old friends and made sure to give them a HUGE Whovian hello from you guise!

Also, if you’re at NYCC today, BBC America is hosting a special screening of Mummy on the Orient Express tonight at 8:15pm! Click here for more information!

I have a lot of sci-fi catchup to do.

I watched the first two parts of the BBC America special The Real History of Science Fiction today, and I realize there are a lot of great films and TV shows I should see and books I should read. Some I hadn’t even heard of before, even.

Like:

  • The Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. Supposed to be a really good example of terraforming a planet.
  • Asimov’s Foundation series (I had heard of this but I’ve never read it, as I’m not a huge Asimov fan)
  • The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula LeGuin, which is apparently part of a larger universe called the Hainish Cycle.
  • The short story “Super-Toys Last All Summer Long” by Brian Aldiss (the basis for the movie AI: Artificial Intelligence)
  • The movies Avatar, Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Silent Running, Blade Runner, Dark Star and Robocop. (Yes, believe it or not, I have actually not seen Avatar yet. I need to remedy that. And by Robocop I mean the old Robocop…apparently there’s a remake coming out this year).
  • The TV shows The Six Million Dollar Man, Firefly, and Battlestar Galactica. Besides Star Trek, which I’m planning to watch anyway. Galactica I’m a little worried about because I know there are multiple versions, and I’m not sure which order you’re supposed to watch them in, if any.

Lots of catch-up to do.
