    Confused. Is ROTC/AOS in 3D? ‘Cause that would drive me bonkers.

    This seems very exciting – great to see it on the big screen. Shame they aren’t doing it in the UK though :(

    “Doctor Who Fans: We want you to have fun at these cinema events – but safety is paramount. Please note that attending in costume is fine; however, masks, face-concealing make-up, fake weapons, tools, accessories (like sonic screwdrivers) as well as any costumes that conceal what you are carrying, your natural body shape or face are strictly prohibited.”

    So, just t-shirts, then? :)
