Greetings Gentle Viewers! Kelly, your editor, here yet again, with another week’s edition of FlashBack Friday!
And what is in store for you this week, you ask? What delicious bite of Whedonopolis history is Kelly serving up today, you say? Why doesn’t she just get on with it, you wonder? Excellent questions, every one!
The new series of Doctor Who premieres tomorrow featuring the first episode for the new Doctor, Peter Capaldi. He looks like he’ll be a great Doctor, but let’s take a look back at one of my favorites…That tall, skinny, Scottish bloke. Mr. David Tennant, the 10th Doctor. (In the original numbering.)
Let me take you back…Back…Back… And back some more. All the way to 2009, to Doctor Who‘s first appearance at San Diego Comic-Con (and the first, and last, time I slept out on the sidewalk overnight for a panel). Join me as we revisit the introduction of the premiere screenings of the Doctor Who Series 5 special “Planet of the Dead” and episode 5 of Torchwood‘s “Children of Earth” by Russel T. Davies, David Tennant and John Barrowman.
Watch with me!
For those who know about this event, it’s at 4:50. 😉
Note: The woman who yells out “Hi, David!” to which David Tennant replies “Hi!” is none other than our own Button Lady!
