Dear Arthur…

Poor Arthur Darvil. Not only did he miss out on the friendly, sunny confines of the San Diego Comic Con but now his co-stars are laughing at him through the lens of the Internet.

In this first of a series of exclusive clips to be released over the coming days from BBC America Matt Smith and Karen Gillan have taken a few moments out of the clear arduous task of being worshiped by the crowds of Hall H and have sent this very special message to Rory Williams himself Arthur Darvill.

With friends like these…

Be sure to check out the BBC America site over the next few days for more clips from Doctor Who’s time at SDCC.

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    I thought it was amusing. Poor Arthur missing Comic Con though! Still, he’s doing theatre at the moment, he’s having his own fun!

    It’s not content the video I’m commenting on. It’s the people in the video. Can the BBC hire adults next time.
    If I see another picture of Matt Smith groping his girlfriend or Karen Gillan stumble out of another nightclub I might puke. Get rid.

    Anyone reckon Ian might be Arthur Darvill?

    I wish. Sorry to all the Matt & Karen lovers out there but I’m slowly becoming more and more cynical and disillusioned with Doctor Who now. I’ve been a fan since I was five (circa 1984) and I was over the moon when it came back in 2005 but I don’t think it’s being made for me anymore. The BBC have decided that the UK audience is insignificant now that they have their sights set on breaking America and they’ve cast a pair of giggling buffoons to help them do it.

    Ian, I am an American Whovian. I fell head over heels for Doctor Who because of it’s pure fantastically brilliant-ness. I love that it’s British. Whenever people like you complain that the Moff and Co. are catering to the new American audience, it feels like you’re blaming us. It’s not our fault. I dislike it as much as you do. I want it to stay as British as possible.
