  1. Charrion says:

    What about your fans here in Canada? I checked the listings and all we get are reruns of Top Gear and Little Britain. Not that those are bad things, but I want nerdist!

  2. Kayla says:

    I have the weirdest nerd erection right now! I swear, I’m more excited for this (and the Doctor Who Christmas special) than Christmas itself! 😀

  3. Mark Topp says:

    My excitement for my eyes to view this is offset by my lack of access to BBC America, on X-mas eve, or ever for that matter. How does one go about viewing this without the benefit of access to arguably the best channel on American Television?

  4. Freaking exciting, nerds! Can’t wait!

  5. MiyuRoki says:

    Soooooo goooooood! I cannot wait to see this.

  6. NF Fan says:

    Wow! Nathan Freaking Fillion!!! I can’t wait to see this! I’m a huge fan of Nathan!!! He is the nerdist man! He is such a cute geek! Absolutely: Geek God!

  7. Dr_B says:

    Oh… my…. why is the room spinning??? *faints from the amount of awesome I just read*

  8. agirlyman says:

    Omfg you just simultaneously blew my mind, and my dick! Who’s gonna clean up this mess??!?!?!?!?

  9. Veronika says:

    Nathan Fillion? David Tennant? Simon Pegg? I just peed myself.

  10. nel says:

    Nathan Fillion? yes please. AND The Tennant?! thank you for FINALLY having him on the show!! if you can get Craig Ferguson to finally get him on his show as well i’ll be your biggest fan. 😉

  11. debbers says:

    Um….. i’m pretty sure I cussed out loud when I read the line up- and i’m one of those goody goes to church every Sunday types. This awesomeness is gonna corrupt me. 😉

  12. John says:


  13. Breana L says:

    I really really like this. Alot

  14. Troy says:

    Think i’m going to Nerdgasm all over the place!!! Tennant, Pegg, AWESOMENESS!

  15. Cathy says:

    “Maybe Christmas,” she thought, “doesn’t come from a store.
    “Maybe Christmas,….perhaps,…means a little bit more!”

    Ok, a LOT more,..with this to look forward to! Thanks for providing such a tempting carrot to propel even we, the Elder Geeks,.through the challenges of the season!!

  16. Billy says:

    I’m DVRing the fucking shit out of this. I hope it’s 60minutes.

  17. Kait says:

    I have a pretty raging lady-boner for everyone that’s going to be on this show. Nerdgasm is also an appropriate term here. Rawr.

  18. Lady Ingrid says:

    The best Birthday & Christmas for me since I got my awesome pink Huffy bike when I was 9! I think I am tingling.

    Nathan, Simon, Chris and my favorite doctor —David! Hurry up 12/24 get here already.

  19. Jennifer Goodrich says:

    Oh, Mr. Hardwick….you give the best Christmas presents 😉

  20. Sideburn72 says:

    flurging shnit! lotta good gets!

  21. Patricia says:

    This is going to be great. Nathan Fillion and David Tennant on the same show. Love it. Love them both. David Tennant is the best Doctor Who ever. I miss him so much. But at least I have all the Doctor Who series he was in on DVD. And Nathan, best looking and smartest detective on tv. Yes, I know he plays a writer, but Castle solves the mysteries.

  22. chris says:

    With a handsome young driver, so witty and quick I knew in a moment it must be Hardwick
    More nerdy than sliderules his panel they came (eeww)
    And he whistled and shouted and called them by name

    Now Nathan, now Simon, now Jonah and still
    On David. on Matthew, on Kumail and Wil
    To the top of the podcast, to the top of tv
    Now laugh away, laugh away, laugh BBC!

    (apologies to Clement Clarke Moore)

  23. Junior says:

    DAVID TENNANT!!!! akfjhlashgei;awngwli;eaw DAVID TENNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! kldasjlgkhoi;wvna;ilwnevoi;awnvo;ieaw OH MY FUCKING GOD YOU’RE GOING TO TALK TO DAVID TENNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ajgkl;hwe;iagh;aiowhvoaibnwgir.ah;oig4w

  24. John says:

    Holy crapballs! This makes me so happy in my soul and pants respectively. This makes my Xmas!

  25. Meaghan says:

    I just died a little inside because I’m in Canada and I don’t get to see this. This is a KICK-ASS line-up!!

  26. Joe B. says:

    What’s amazing is that this is also my fantasy orgy guest list.

  27. Grabes says:

    I have the bigger nerd boner right now!

  28. Nicki says:

    Squee!!! I suddenly believe in Santa again :)

  29. courtney says:

    Wow, are there going to be ladies on the show? That’s quite a sausage fest. A good looking, hilarious, i-have-a-crush-on-every-single-one-of-you-fest….but seriously, that’s a lot dudes.

  30. Sarah says:

    PLEASE say that since this is a special that it will be a longer show. That was my only complaint about the first show. You guys need more time on air. This looks like it will be the BEST THING EVER.

  31. Saxyroro says:

    So awesome.

  32. Ah'Lee-sa says:

    What a great line-up! This show is a great pre-Christmas birthday gift. Thanks Nerdist and BBC! You’re so thoughtful and awesome.

  33. Sean says:

    WOW what a line up. Have fun guys.

  34. Tesia says:

    OMG!!! This line up has nerdgasm written all over it!

  35. Michelle says:

    This is everything I love, EVER.

    Then I was sad because I don’t get BBCAmerica.

    Then I remembered that I will be visiting family for the holidays, and said family DOES have BBCA.

    And now I am happy again. 😀

  36. Kathy says:

    OMG! I loved the first one, this one will sent geek gals everywhere into orbit! Just add Zachary Levi and I might do unspeakable things with my television…

  37. CharRob58 says:

    As Donna told the Doctor, I bloody love you!

  38. Mike says:

    Regular Nerdist podcast with David Tennant on top of the tv show please!

    Also it’d be nice if you guys can get more opinion on the editing process. The last tv show’s edit didn’t do justice to the awesomeness that is Nerdist podcast.

    May I suggest the next target for you Big C:
    a.) Hugh Laurie & Stephen Fry.
    b.) Arthur Darvill ( The only thing I hate about Rory is that I can’t see Mr. Darvill play the Doctor.)
    c.) John Simm

    (just wondering, does this mean Chris will start counting down the previous doctors in the next tv show? Tom Baker / Peter Davison perhaps?)

  39. Nikki says:

    Oh. My. God. TENNANT? Chris what did you do to get that to happen!?!? Also hurray for the other guests!! I love love love Simon Pegg!! And Wil Wheaton. And Kumail. And Nathan.

  40. Omar Abdul Jabar says:

    I have had a massive nerd boner for an hour, great line up but David fucking Tennant? Im straight but I want to have his babies.

  41. Matt says:

    Congrats! Great line up, wish I got it here in Canada! :-(

  42. mechas8n says:

    Ho please stick with the round table format of the first show. This will be so awesome. It fun to see interviews, but its even better to see interaction.

  43. Eleanor Grant says:

    im in it for Tennant =D

  44. Beth says:


  45. Arnold says:

    Looks super awesome and the best thing ever in the world, but…
    How will I be able to see it over here in the UK? Will it air here or be on the site? I sure hope so, otherwise Christmas will be ruined! Please someone help? Thanks!

  46. Matt Jacobs says:

    This is amazing! I do not get BBC America, so I will be subscribing via iTunes!

  47. deb says:

    I CANNOT stop trembling at the thought of this guest list!!!
    SO hoping we Nodists who e-mailed right away get in for EITHER taping’s audience Sunday!
    Never thought the pilot could be topped…but my FAVORITE people are listed for this special!
    Words are failing me now. And I am a word nerd as WELL as a comedy and science fiction/fantasy nerd!!!
    I don’t have cable, so as long as I am selected, I will get to see this!

  48. Sharma says:

    Holy Awesomesauce, Batman! 😀 You’ve really outdone yourself with this one, Chris. I knew you were a big fan of DT’s AND NF’s from all of your wonderful interactions with Craigy Ferg on his show. The other three, Simon, Wil, and Kumail, are just icing on what was already a very nerdilicious and yummy cake! :)

    One thing though… Will they all be able to interact with one another, as in be in a group, like Graham Norton does oinm the Beeb? Or are they all individual (ergo, separate) one-on-one interviews, spliced together to fill up an hour of air time?

    The reason I ask, is because I was at Comic Con a couple years ago (the year David T. attended), and David actually went on record during his Who panel as saying that he absolutely loved Firefly AND Serenity.

    Sooooo, I think it’s only fair that the Captain (the ‘Mal’ variety, anyway) and the (Tenth) Doctor have a chance to meet since they will already BOTH be on your set anyway. What say you? Think of it as an extra Christmas gift for David. *lol* After all, he’s a giant fanboy too. :)

    Anyhoo – just a thought or three, Chris. :) *hugs*

    ~With great respect, Sharma,
    a GIANT fangirl, who really acts more like a fanboy…
