Matt, Karen and Arthur in America

The recent appearances by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the USA caused quite a stir, with the three Doctor Who stars causing fans to lineup in their hundreds to meet the trio for a DVD signing!

While stateside, the time travelling trio also took the time to take part in a few interviews, such as this one with BBC America, in which you will discover that they’re being put up in flash hotels and that Matt would like to live in New York City one day…

The brave fans who queued from 6.30 am, meanwhile, were featured on a Manhattan-based news website, with 18 year old Shelby Maniccia stating:

“Matt Smith is my favorite doctor, I’m totally in love with him.”

Meanwhile the much older Andy Stamat, 57, who has been a fan since the 1980s, believes:

“The writing, although comedic, definitely deals with philosophy, science fiction and mysticism in a way that other shows don’t.”

It’s great to see that Matt, Karen and Arthur had such a good reception once again in the USA – but when are they going to tour the UK…?
