** APPEARING at 2015's Gallifrey One Convention! ** gallifreyone.com/?p=15509

Doctor Who Live is an LA-based improv show that creates a fully improvised episode of Doctor Who. Using an audience suggestion, we create a 50-minute Doctor Who adventure never before seen on TV or the stage... and never to be seen again.

Currently we are performing every 2nd and 4th Saturday nights at the iO West theater in Hollywood, CA.

We've also performed at the Gallifrey One Convention, Stan Lee's Comikaze, the Nerdist at Meltdown Showroom, ConDor Con and San Diego Comic Fest!

Human Nature/Family of Blood Behind the Scenes

From Jason Arnopp’s Human Nature article (DWM #383)

     David Tennant is consuming all of the drugs he can lay his hands on.  Not in a tabloid-pleasing way, mind.  “Day Nurse, First Defence, you name it,” he says, walking across the Museum’s grounds towards the Villiage Hall.  He’s copped a dose of the flu, yet is still working hard.  “I don’t sound as bad as I feel,” he grimaces.  “Which is great for the show, but crap in terms of sympathy!”     Maybe the Doctor’s alter ego John Smith has a cold?
     “Yeah,” says David, sounding unsure.  “Well, it was the Doctor who had a cold yesterday…”
     DWM decides to leave poor David alone for the two days we have on-set.   That’s just the kind of people we are.”
[…]
     It’s the morning of 9 January at Upper Boat Studios, and David still has a cough which makes his knees buckle.  Between takes at Wainwright’s cottage, he slips out of the John Smith persona, sits down and closes his eyes.  It’s a far cry from his usual energised joking around, chatting to young set-visitors and signing autographs.  Just as Human Nature is about feeling the Doctor’s absence, there’s clearly an absence of David felt on-set.  Vitally though, each and every cry of “Action!” brings John Smith to life, pitch and word-perfect.  Talk about professional.

BBC Worldwide is currently investigating a security issue around Doctor Who Series 8 where unfinished material has inadvertently been made public. We deeply regret this and apologise to all the show’s fans, the BBC and the cast and crew who have worked tirelessly making the series.
We would like to make a plea to anyone who might have any of this material and spoilers associated with it not to share it with a wider audience so that everyone can enjoy the show as it should be seen on 23rd August. We know only too well that Doctor Who fans are the best in the world and we thank them for their help with this and their continued loyalty.


Hullo there, Doctor Who Tumblr here… *deep breath*

Ideally no one should really know anything about the next season of Doctor Who (that hasn’t been purposefully put out by the BBC) until it premieres on August 23rd, but unfortunately some people do.


While it might be tempting to look, it turns out that a lot of people don’t want to know anything at all until the new episodes premiere. Avoiding spoilers is incredibly important to many Whovians - some fans have already started a #KeepMeSpoilerFree campaign on Twitter and Tumblr.

Of course, no Doctor Who fan would put themselves in a situation where they had something that they DEFINITELY weren’t supposed to have, and no fan would EVER save material or spoilers to their computers…but if they HAD done that, we would suggest:

Option 1: *cyberman voice* DELETE. Spoilers spoil!

Option 2: Take those spoilers and put them in a special folder titled “Do not open until these episodes premiere!” 

Since we started running the Doctor Who Tumblr, nothing has made us happier than seeing the worldwide fandom come together to celebrate Doctor Who. Today we’re a bigger, more global fandom than ever before and Doctor Who is the most exciting it’s ever been. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could all experience the new series, unspoiled, when it airs on television for the first time, together as a community? 

While on Tumblr, we would suggest that you avoid spoilers by tagging all spoiler-y posts with “DW Spoilers” and “Spoilers” and to then install either Tumblr Savior or XKit and block those tags. With XKit you’ll have to install the “Blacklist” extension and add the tag from there. 


With either of those installed and the hashtag blocked, posts that pop up on your dash using that hashtag will be hidden - with XKit you can block the posts from appearing entirely. Both of the websites linked above have detailed instruction on how to install and you can definitely ask around on Tumblr if you run into any problems.

Let’s do our best as Whovians to protect ourselves and each other from unwanted spoilers.
