New York Screening and Signing
Next Monday, April 11, @ 7:00pm in the Village East Cinema, New York, some lucky fans will get the chance to enjoy BBC America’s Doctor Who premiere screening with stars Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Alex Kingston in attendance!
Hosted by Chris Hardwick (Nerdist, Web Soup) the event will also feature showrunner Steven Moffat with a Q&A taking place after.
BBC AMERICA has made this a FREE event for fans to come celebrate the first Doctor Who episodes ever filmed in America. Executive producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis will also be in the house for the event.
Following a screening of the two-part season premiere – The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon – Chris will lead a discussion and Q&A, which will be recorded live for a special Nerdist Podcast. The downloadable podcast will give those unable to attend, a front row seat to the event.
BBC AMERICA would like fans to note that:
*** AN RSVP ON FACEBOOK DOES NOT GUARANTEE ADMISSION. SEATING IS ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS. DUE TO THE GREAT REACTION TO LAST YEARâ€™S EVENT, ADDITIONAL SEATING HAS BEEN ADDED. ***
