A few weeks ago we announced that BBC America would be displaying Doctor Who fanart at the BBCA booth at San Diego Comic Con. We received an outstanding number of awesome submissions from Whovian artists and featured some on BBC America’s video cube! Which looked something like this:
(Actually it looked exactly like this)
Here’s a slideshow of all the Doctor Who fan art that was chosen to be featured. Unfortunately the music needed to be removed from the video, but maybe if we all sing doo-wee-ooo~ at the same time we’ll all be able to hear it!
BBC AMERICA and the BBC Worldwide announced today that for the first time ever, the iconic sci-fi series, Doctor Who, will launch a global world tour to introduce Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor.
The tour launches in the UK on August 7 and finishes in Brazil on August 19.On Thursday, August 14, Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will appear together for the first time in the US when they arrive in New York.
The trip will see Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi, on-screen companion Jenna Coleman, and the show’s Lead Writer and Executive Producer Steven Moffat*, visit seven cities across five continents in 12 days to take part in a series of media and fan engagements to publicize the upcoming season to a global audience.
(Due to production commitments, Steven Moffat will be unable to attend to the entire tour. His schedule will be confirmed soon.)
Doctor Who: The World Tour will kick off in Cardiff, Wales before taking in London (UK), Seoul (South Korea), Sydney (Australia), New York (US), Mexico City (Mexico) and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).
BBC America is accepting fan art and videos from anywhere in all of space and time, feel free to submit no matter what country (or planet, or dimension) you’re from.
The maximum video dimensions are 1920 x 1080. As far as length goes, longer video submissions should be cut down to 30-seconds or less. The video wall is silent so it’s fine for videos to have any sort of music in them but unfortunately we won’t be able to hear it (we’ll look up at the screen and sing “doo-wee-oooo” to make up for that.)
BBC America is looking to specifically feature the Twelfth Doctor and Clara at the convention in celebration of the new Series. Video pieces or photos featuring DW cosplayers dressed as them are very welcome.
The video wall is a featured part of the BBC America booth and is quite visible on the con floor. It highlights content from BBC America shows as well as information about related events at the convention.
Yes – at previous events submitting artists have been identified with their Tumblr usernames.
That’s all for now. Still have a question? Our inbox is always open, feel free to send us an ask, and don’t forget that the deadline for submissions is June16th at 12PM ET.
