PHOTOS: ‘Doctor Who’ Celebration Begins in London

And there has been no mucking about: stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman and showrunner Steven Moffat have already made a splash on the red carpet while immaculately dressed cosplayers have shown off their best runway looks. Follow @Anglophenia on Twitter for live-tweets of panels and more on the celebration through Sunday, but here are this morning’s highlights.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
