Doctor Who fans worldwide have been mourning the loss of the 10th Doctor since the New Year. Let's be honest, David Tennant was brilliant! The show won't be the same without him...but I'm trying to be optimistic about the upcoming season of the Doctor.
Doctor Who being a British show, the UK fans will obviously get to see the premiere before us yanks do. And although there will be plenty of downloadable torrents of the new season available online for the impatient American fans, C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) will be hosting a premiere screening of the first two episodes of Doctor Who.
Doctor Who fans attending the comic and entertainment expo will have an opportunity to view the episodes a day before it debuts on BBC America. The following info is from the C2E2 website.
The new series of Doctor Who - featuring the debut of Matt Smith as The
Doctor and Karen Gillan as companion Amy Pond - kicks off on BBC
America on Saturday, April 17, but BBC America and C2E2 are giving
Chicago fans a head start!
BBC America presents its special
premiere screening of the first two episodes of Doctor Who on Friday,
April 16. Fans attending will be the first to see Episode 2 in the U.S.
After spending the day at the con, gather together with your
fellow Who fans at 8 PM in room E353 to witness the first two
adventures of The Doctor and Amy Pond.
