Which Doctor Who monster would make the best roommate? What’s the most fashionable Timelord headgear, fez or Stetson? And, of course, the age-old question, pool in the TARDIS or Vortex Manipulator watch?
BBC America put forth these very questions to celebrity Doctor Who fans as well as to devoted viewers who packed the exhibition floor at last month’s San Diego Comic-Con. Their frank and funny answers will be featured in three original specials the network has announced to feed the Whovian need as we count down the nanoseconds until the August 27 fall premiere. Here’s the schedule – mark the calendars and set those DVRs:
Doctor Who: Best of the Doctor – Saturday, August 13 at 9/8c.
Doctor Who: Best of the Monsters – Saturday, August 20 at 9/8c.
Doctor Who: Best of the Companions – Saturday, August 27 following the Doctor Who premiere episode, “Let’s Kill Hitler,” which airs at 9/8c.
The lineup is a Who’s Who of DW fandom: Alison Haislip (The Voice, G4 correspondent), Chris Hardwick (Nerdist), Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Natalie Morales (Parks and Recreation), Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords, Bob’s Burgers), WIRED Magazine senior editor Adam Rogers, singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls), comedian/musician Reggie Watts, Danielle Harris (the Halloweenfranchise), comedian Paul F. Tompkins, former NFL player Hugh Douglas, and guitar hero Scott Ian (Anthrax). And Who fan fave Mark Sheppard — Canton Delaware III from the two-part season opener — will also be joining the festivities.
We’ve gotten our mittens on an exclusive sneak peek at the specials. Here, Alison Haislip, Chris Hardwick, Scott Adsit, and Reggie Watts totally geek out over Doctor Who lead writer Steven Moffat‘s ingenious monster creation, The Silence.
