Paley Center for Media
Matt Smith explaining how in preparing for his role as the 11th Doctor in the long running BBC series, Doctor Who that he studied quotes of Albert Einstein. Recorded at the US premiere of the 2010 series of Doctor Who at the Paley Center for Media in New York, April 2010.
Also see Karen Gillan explaining that anything is possible in Doctor Who at the same event.
We had the pleasure of meeting Karen Gillan (Amy Pond in Doctor Who) this past April (2010) covering the event for Doctor Who: Podshock. Although we were there chiefly to record audio and shot still photos, we did manage to capture some short video of the red carpet interviews (thanks to the iPhone 3GS). This is one.
This is Karen Gillan at the US premiere of Doctor Who (the 1st Matt Smith series) at the Paley Center for Media in NYC speaking of going from her first role in Doctor Who (The Fires of Pompeii) to a full time companion.

We continue our coverage of the New York Doctor Who events including insights gained from the Q and A at the Paley Center such as the origins of the 11th Doctor saying "Geronimo," Steven Moffat's The Eleventh Hour script, which historical event would Matt and Karen most like to visit in a story, and more. Plus our "carcast" recorded immediately following the screening at the Paley Center where we give our initial take on the evening's events, meeting Murray Gold, etc..

Last night I got to meet an incumbent Doctor for the first time ever! And I am still on a high!
The new Doctor Who team started their American invasion last night, with a fantastic event at the NYC branch of the Paley Center for Media called "Who's Next: The New Era of Doctor Who", organized by BBC America. And what a night it was. We got to see, listen to, and meet stars Matt Smith, and Karen Gillan, and all 3 executive producers Steven Moffat, Piers Wenger, and Beth Willis! Oh, and composer Murray Gold was also there!
