"Group Therapy" - A summary of the Doctor Who Q&A Panel featuring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan at the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con

Okay so Matt and Karen’s panel was earlier today and it was absolutely amazing! I documented pretty much everything during the panel for you all to read at your enjoyment! There was A LOT so I’ll be putting it under a read more, read at your own risk/pleasure/whatever you prefer.

(Some highlights- Matt and Karen doing the drunk giraffe, as if they were “star-crossed lovers”; Matt’s socks; their mothers; Matt being slightly jealous of Peter Capaldi; Matt and Karen singing the Doctor Who theme song, and encouraging the audience to join in; a lot of sass on Karen’s part; and Matt’s inner Doctor coming out.)

Filming has begun in Cardiff for Series 9 of Doctor Who and includes a star-studded guest cast. The new series will be back on BBC One in Autumn 2015.

The episodes currently being filmed are written by Toby Whithouse (The Game, Being Human), produced by Derek Ritchie and directed by Daniel O’Hara (Silent Witness 2015, The Game, Being Human).

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, said: “An amazing guest cast for a brilliantly creepy two-parter by Toby Whithouse. Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are back in Cardiff, back in the box, and back in action - for one of our scariest adventures yet!”

On set filming for the new series, Peter Capaldi added: “The adventures begin again for myself and Jenna and I’m delighted to be back filming my second series of Doctor Who.”

Paul Kaye who played Thoros of Myr in the third series of Game of Thrones joins the Doctor Who cast for the two-part episode. A comedian and actor, Paul is also well-known for being the voice of Vincent the fox on the puppet-based BBC comedy Mongrels.

Commenting on his role, Paul Kaye, said: “As a kid of the 1970s, the two shows you always watched were Top of the Pops and Doctor Who, they were unmissable. I actually wrote a song called ‘Looking for Davros’ in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek. I got to present TOTP back in the mid ‘90’s and landing this role in Doctor Who completes the dream double.

“Peter is a perfect Doctor and I’m loving every minute of the experience, even the five hours in make-up. What a treat, best 50th birthday present ever!”

Also starring in the episodes will be Morven Christie who recently played the role of Amanda in the crime drama Grantchester and featured in Death in Paradise (2014) and Twenty Twelve.

Arsher Ali who played the part of Malik Suri in the critically acclaimed The Missing (BBC One) takes up a role in the guest cast alongside Colin McFarlane who appeared in BBC EastEnders as part of the ‘Who Killed Lucy Beale?’ storyline.

Recognised for her theatre and TV performances, actress Sophie Stone appears in the show for the first time. Sophie was the lead actress in the play Woman of Flowers and has appeared in Midsummer Murders and BBC Casualty.

Also joining Peter Capaldi (the Doctor) and Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) and confirmed for roles in the double episode are Zaqi Ismail, Steven Robertson and Neil Fingleton.

Further guest cast for Series 9 will be released over the coming months. Doctor Who is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One.

i was forced to do this

(to the tune of “Royals” by Lorde)

I’ve never seen a dalek in the flesh
I cut my teeth on cybermen in the future
And I’m not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no policebox envy

But every song’s like Tennant, Baker, trippin’ in the TARDIS
Martha, Donna, trashin’ the control room,
We don’t care, we’re driving spaceships in our dreams.
But everybody’s like River, Amy, companions on your timepiece.
UFOs, planets, Angels on a gold plinth.
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your world to spare.

And we’ll never be Timelords (Timelords).
It don’t run in our blood,
That kind of Space just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of Time .
Let me be your Timelord (Timelord),
You can call me Wibbly Wobbly
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

[Verse 2]
My friends and I—we’ve cracked the code.
We count our Tens on the way to the TARDIS.
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this,
We didn’t come from Jelly babies.

But every song’s like Tennant, Baker, trippin’ in the TARDIS
Martha, Donna, trashin’ the control room,
We don’t care, we’re driving spaceships in our dreams.
But everybody’s like River, Amy, companions on your timepiece.
UFOs, planets, Angels on a gold plinth.
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your world to spare.

And we’ll never be Timelords (Timelords).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of Space just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of Time.
Let me be your Timelord (Timelord),
You can call me Wibbly Wobbly
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Ooh ooh oh
We’re further than we ever dreamed,
And I’m in love with being Timey-wimey.
Ooh ooh oh
Life is great without a care
We aren’t caught up in your planet to spare.

And we’ll never be Timelords (Timelords).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of Space just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of Time.
Let me be your Timelord (Timelord),
You can call me Wibbly Wobbly
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.
