comic-relief-auction-for-breakfast-with-seven-doctors

Red Nose Day is back this month and so is their auction, which is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity for Doctor Who fans.

Seriously, it’s the stuff that Whovian dreams are made of.

In the not too distant future, seven Doctors – Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi – will be sitting down for a full English breakfast at The Wolseley in London, and there are four unreserved seats up for grabs…

Two of them will be claimed by the highest bidders, while the other two will be picked at random from a prize draw of ticket holders, for those of us who don’t have a spare £10,000 (and then some!) lying around. A single ticket can be purchased now for £5, with multiple packages on offer to increase your odds. All of the money will go towards Comic Relief and its associated charities to help people who are living difficult lives across the UK and Africa.

Good luck to those who will be bidding, and may the odds be forever in your favour if you’ll be entering the raffle. Red Nose Day is on Friday 24th March. Find out more about it, here.

matt-says-he-owes-great-debt-to-who-fans

Matt Smith has revealed that he owes “a great debt” to Doctor Who fans for supporting his subsequent success.

The actor bowed out as the Eleventh Doctor in 2013 and has since gone on to enjoy a string of high profile roles, including his latest appearance in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, released in cinemas this week. Promoting the film, the former Time Lord affirmed that he isn’t “trying to actively shed” his association with the world’s longest running sci-fi franchise. “Doctor Who was always going to sit on my ether for a bit,” he said. “But it’s something that I’m very proud of.”

He continued: “The Who fans are wonderfully loyal and that character was a fantastic part, one that has been played before but allowed me to reinvent. So I will be forever grateful.”

You will also be able to catch Matt on Netflix later this year when he takes on the guise of Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, in the original 10-part period drama “The Crown”.

matt-reacts-to-stevens-departure

Matt Smith has shared his reaction to the news that Steven Moffat will be stepping down as Doctor Who’s showrunner at the end of the next series.

The Eleventh Doctor actor helped Moffat to relaunch the show following the departure of David Tennant and Russell T Davies in 2009, and told The Anglophile Channel that he still feels “very privileged” to have been given such a once in a lifetime opportunity. “Steven pretty much is Doctor Who, so I’m sad he’s leaving,” he said. “He’s done so much for the show, and for me, but it will always endure.”

He continued: “There’s a wonderful writer starting, and it’s always been about reinvention.”

Steven’s last Christmas Special will air in December followed by Series 10 in spring 2017, after which Chris Chibnall will take over the reigns for Series 11, set to hit our screens in 2018. Read the full press release and share your own thoughts in our dedicated poll, here.

Matt is currently promoting his new film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, in which he stars as Mr Collins, ahead of its international release into cinemas on 5th February 2016.
