Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a cavalier cavalcade of Whovian malarkey from an entire week across the web.
And we begin this week with the startlingly lovely public meeting between Jenna Coleman and Karen Gillan, appearing at a joint Doctor Who panel at Boston Comic Con over the weekend.
Here’s some fan-shot footage of the panel in full, with key moments including the presentation of a mini sonic, Karen’s Amy doll collection, Jenna’s worst hair moment and a LOT of giggling at a young fan’s question about Matt Smith towards the end:
The fans loved it:
