Get out your brollys, put on your bowler hats, and pack up your fish and chips. It’s a BBC extravaganza tonight on ‘The Nerdist!’
‘The Nerdist’ is thrilled to kick off the first episode of the new series with an anglophile event for nerds everywhere! We’re celebrating being a part of the BBC America family by taking a look at some of the amazing programming that sprang forth from the loins of the BBC!
And what’s a party without some family members to help you celebrate? We’ve got Dominic Monaghan, star of ‘Lost,’ ‘Lord of the Rings,’ and BBC America’s show ‘Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan‘ as well as Tatiana Maslany – the newly minted star of BBC America’s brand-new original series ‘Orphan Black!’
And of course, it wouldn’t be a proper soirée without – the Doctor. In this episode, Matt Mira and Jonah Ray hop across the pond to go head -to-head with ‘Doctor Who‘ stars Matt Smith and new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman. Watch as they battle to win ‘Nerdist’ supremacy in an all-out war we’ve hominymly titled: ‘Matt and Jenna versus Matt and Jonah‘!
Plus – thanks to the team of crack researchers at ‘The Nerdist’ division of robotic sciences, Matt Smith also joins us here in studio.
