SDCC Reddit questions with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.
Once again, Craig Ferguson welcomes Doctor Who guests on his US late night chat show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. This coming week we have both Matt Smith and Karen Gillan lined up to appear on his show, but not on the same night. It's Monday night's show for Matt* and Tuesday for Karen… *Maybe. I say maybe because according to the show's CBS website of this week's guests, it has Matt scheduled for Friday at the time of this writing. According to my DVR though, he's on for Monday night's show, so I would advise recording Monday night's show just to play it safe. If Matt is not on it, be sure to set your DVR for Friday. Remember when it comes to setting your DVR, since the show is at 12:35 am, it's after midnight, so techincally, it's the next day. Depending on your DVR, you may need to go Tuesday, July 26th at 12:35 am to find Monday night's show and to Wednesday, July 27th at 12:35am to find Tuesday night's show.
Both are "in town" so to speak -- well at least in CA for San Diego Comic Con taking place now.
Matt Smith appeared on a TV Guide Fan Favorite panel at San Diego Comic Con currently underway in Califronia, USA. On the panel, he mentioned in reference to the episode, A Good Man Goes to War that he thought the Doctor would had caught on sooner who River Song really was and he also mentioned that is all-time favorite Doctor is Patrick Troughton, the 2nd Doctor.
'Doctor Who': Matt Smith tells Comic-Con about 'Let's Kill Hitler' and River Song payoff - From Inside the Box - Zap2it: "The real "Doctor Who" fun doesn't start at Comic-Con until Sunday (July 24), when stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan join writer (and "Being Human" creator) Toby Whithouse and executive producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis for a panel in Hall H.
But that didn't stop Smith from making an early appearance at the TV Guide Fan Favorite panel, where he slipped a few teases about the upcoming second half of Season 6 and indulged in a little time travel fantasizing.
When asked about his favorite episode in his two-year tenure as the Doctor, he confessed that it's still to come. "The next episode... 'Let's Kill Hitler,'" says Smith. "[Creator] Steven [Moffat] is in fine form, and there's a great monster, which is important.""

Those of you lucky enough or ahem brave enough to go to SDCC (San Diago Comic Con) can get this exclusive from Underground Toys, River Song with Pandorica Chair. As to whether it will fit together with last years Pandorica sides which housed a free cd, is anybodys guess.
But it's not the only new piece of new kit from Underground Toys/Character Options, these fortunately aren't exclusives. To this there are Errrrrr.... Cuddly Daleks? yes that's right Soft Daleks which come in red or blue. But that's not all to that a Cuddly TARDIS, both the Daleks and TARDIS have sound and the Tardis's lamp light up as well.

After the Doctor Who panel ended, I hauled butt over to the Sails Pavillion, where my Darlng Husband had run through multiple lines to get me a ticket for the autograph session and saved me a place in line.
There were wild rumors that David Tennant would take part in this session and Murray Gold had hinted on Twitter that he might also take part in it.
But no. Euros Lyn, Julie Gardner and Russell T. came in after about an hour's wait.
Thanks to the DH, I was right up in front of the line and had a moment or two to trade comments with RTD.
Of course, I have my own agenda, and asked him, as he'd just claimed that Four was *his* Doctor, why the BBC no longer distributes Doctor Who Scarf patterns.
He'd had no idea and offered to look into it. I gave him my card.
This promo for the End of Time presented at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend was shot by someone in the audience. The hand-held shaky video uploaded to YouTube by safia43 was then stabilized and cleaned up a bit by colonelbarker to the give you what you see here below. It features an element that would had been considered a spoiler before Comic Con, but now is not as the BBC has already announced it.
