Video Exchange w/ Matt Smith, Karen Gillan & Arthur Darvill

Words not sufficient for brain to express joy-splosion! Words weird come out brain now. Suffice it to say that this li’l Who fan’s dreams have become infinitely more fulfilled now.


Then listen to “Whoptopia” the special “Who & A” chat with Steven Moffat and the cast of Doctor Who this Friday on the Nerdist Podcast! There are NO SPOILERS! Just fan generated Qs & As!!!

Good prep for the series 6 premiere of Doctor Who, Saturday April 23rd at 9/8C on BBC America.

And just to let the 1000 Person Orchestra from Boston know, the cast was quite pleased with your performance! I watched it with them (which I only felt QUITE weird about). Well done, young Whovians!!!

Also, here’s the 8-bit Doctor Who theme!

(PS – we just launched our YouTube channel,! Subscribe for video Nerdist happenings!)

    wow wow wow!! That was INcrediBALLS!!! I became a BIG Dr. Who fan about a year ago. I say that b/c I figure Hardwick’s at LEAST 1000x that– so, by the transitive property, I figure his excitement was easily 1000x that as well. #boNERD!!

    Chris!!!!you are the luckiest whovian on the face of the planet ! I’m jealous that you get to talk with the cast from Doctor Who, a chance that could only come once in a lifetime. And to get an email from them singing just adds the awesomeness of this!!!

  27. @RadNerd says:

    Nerdist is cool, and Stetson’s!

  28. Amanda says:

    This was so amazing! I’m so glad I got to be a part of the reply video!

  29. Anna says:

    Chris, your Who-obsession is nothing short of awesome. Thanks for making us nerds feel unashamed for loving the Doctor. Keep up the good work!


  30. KT says:

    HOLY CRAP!! O_O *brain goes nuclear, implodes*

  31. Sarah K. says:

    Love you, Chris! You’re the coolest nerd ever. Doctor Who rules.

  32. Decay says:

    That’s so (crikey dingo) awesome, I might just explode right ….now (splat)

  33. Half says:

    Great comeback… However, I have to pull you up over the line ‘Two Brits and a Scot!!!’

    Being Scottish is not mutually exclusive with being British.

    It’s kinda like me saying two Americans and a Texan, as if Texans somehow aren’t.

  34. Matt Storm says:

    I just had a Whogasm in my pants. This is so awesome!!!!!

  35. jonathan says:

    that was amazing

  36. MariNYC81 says:

    Way too freaking awesome!!! Whovian in the house. I am so ready for that season premiere. Oh and the Nathan Fillion Podcast…it’s like you want me to be a lifetime Hardwick fan.

  37. Mythosidhe says:

    Adorableness all around. And it sounds like Karen’s got some operatic pipes on her…

  38. Karina again says:

    I should add a “had” an “ago” and start re-reading posts before hitting “submit”…*blush*

  39. Karina says:

    I’ve been listening to your podcast since you Matt on a while ago. I caught the “Who bug” when I was living in England a few years.
    The series restarted then and I didn’t know what all the fuss was about (it never ran in Germany), so got curious and decided to check it out.
    And, of course, got hooked immediately – especially when Tennant took over….
    Long story longer: Matt brought me to your podcast and I worked my way back through all of it since then.
    I am so glad you’re spreading the word stateside – it deserves all the love it can get – I am giving away DVDs here in Germany to do my bit. 🙂

    Can’t wait for your podcast of the panel and thanks for being a fellow “Whovian”!!!

  40. Jesus says:

    Words can not convay how awesome this is!

  41. Dreama says:

    Chris, I think I love you!

    What a fun video exchange, and so looking forward to the Podcast!

    Thanks for being a great Whovian representative!

  42. Yogzotot says:

    Brilliant, both of the videos. I love my bunch of nerds, and I am proud to be one, too! 🙂

  43. Molly says:

    Didn’t think I could be more excited for series 6 of Doctor Who, but I was wrong. This is SO AWESOME. Thanks for sharing!!

  44. sfBirdie says:

    I was waiting for you to post this – AMAZING. So freaking awesome.

  45. Lisa G says:

    Mutual admiration — the greatest gift any little nerd could ever receive! Awesome attracts awesome, my friend! <3

  46. Ramiro says:

    I second the ringtone request! Karen and the Babes! freaking awesome!

  47. Zach Hanke says:

    Can you make the song available for us to download?
    The real intro music is my ringtone now, but I’d much rather have this version.

  48. sean says:

    thats so cool! Matt Smith has a got a crazy good head of hair.

  49. Alyssa K says:

    I would have seriously died. They’re freaking amazing. And your reply was epic as well!

  50. Javis Hearne says:

    THIS IS AWESOME!! Chris you give nerds a great name. And you give Doctor Who fans like myself and even better name!!
