Impossible Astronaut: See it Early!
Know how the BBC always seems to host pre-broadcast promotional screenings of certain episodes of Doctor Who in this, the Platinum Age of the series?Â Hate the jealous feeling you get when you realize that those who attend these screenings get to see Who stories before you do?Â Don’t start coveting your neighbour’s wife’s admission ticket just yet – this may be your chance to make other people envy you for a change!
Auntie Beeb’s planning a party with a screening of Doctor Who’s two-episode series premiere, The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, on Monday, April 4th (that’s just next week in case you forgot your pocket calendar/iPhone) in London, and they’re giving away 60 tickets to 30 people (that’s two per person, not 60 each, which would be more preferable) to mark the occasion!
If that’s not enough awesomeness for you, how about this – after the screening there will be a Q&A sesh with the cast!Â Not only will you get to see what looks set to be a thrill ride of an opener before everyone else does, you’ll finally get to ask Karen Gillan (assuming she’ll be among the cast in attendance) if she’ll marry you from the audience!
All that’s required of you is a name, an email address, a phone number, a UK residency (aww… -me) and 16 years of life spent outside your mother’s womb.Â You also need the ability to be in Central London by 6PM on the aforementioned date; the BBC may give you a ticket, but the travel expenses are on you.Â As such, if you think you won’t have the means to be there on time, the BBC requests that you simply do not enter.Â Deadline for entries is April 1st at 4PM, which is very, very soon.
