If you’ve recovered from your Doctor Who party and shopping centres weren’t oppressive enough at this festive Yuletide receipt-keeping time of year imagine the crush about to descend upon the newly re-opened Westfield Stratford City shopping centre when Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill pop in on Monday 21st November for the launch of the Doctor Who Series 6 DVD and Blu-ray box set!
Attending Europe’s biggest shopping centre (pop haircut Justin Bieber recently turned on their Christmas lights; I bet the Luton Arndale were kicking themselves) the Doctor Who trio will be signing copies of the box set and taking part in a Q&A hosted by Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley.
That’s right – fans have the chance to pop questions to their heroes, in the politest possible way, of course, while veteran surely-she’s-too-old-for-1-eff-em Whiley gets heavy and dirty with her expert schmoozing, which anyone who has heard her interview David Tennant or seen her “host” coverage of Glastonbury on the BBC will surely be able to appreciate.
Or vomit over.
The box set scribbling will take place at HMV at 13:30 pm where 250 wristbands will be issues on a first come, first served basis at 08:30 am on the day of the event.
Taking place at the Westfield Stratford City Gallery the Q&A starts at 16:00 pm and for those not in the area it can be followed on Twitter via #DoctorWho.
