So, aside from seeing Matt Smith walk among the thousands of geeks and nerds at Comic Con while in a Bart Simpson Mask and having not ONE single person recognize him by his voice. The biggest news for Doctor Who was the trailer they showed for the 50th anniversary special. A trailer that was amazing based on the the write up I read in an article. A trailer that should be available to everyone the world over almost immediately after it is shown at SDCC. But no. Moffat went on the offense and said that if anyone who had filmed the trailer releases it on the internet there won’t be any more “exclusives” in terms of Doctor Who. Being relatively new to the fandom that is Doctor Who, I was thrown for a loop. I mean, it’s comic con. I’ve followed the stuff at comic con for years. What happens is we see little news blips of what was brought up at the various panels. Only to then have the entirety of the panels show up on youtube or some other video site. Moffat doesn’t seem to understand the audience that he is trying to make the show for. A day after I read about the trailer I read an article about all the fans in Britain bitching out Moffat, with just cause, because he has an SDCC exclusive trailer for the widely anticipated 50th anniversary episode. And the home country can’t even see it. While I’m still new to the overall idea of Doctor Who..I can definitely see where Moffat’s influence has been used for the show overall. I enjoyed the episodes he wrote for. And I will say he has a passion for the Doctor. But all of his run around BS and semi truths, and aggression towards the fans themselves, have made me into the guy waiting for the next show runner. Someone perhaps a bit more savvy with how stuff works via the internet. I will say, BBC saying that they are going to air the 50th simultaneously across all the nations that air Doctor Who to prevent spoilers is an amazing idea. I’m still sitting here waiting to see if America is going to have the option of seeing the episode in a 3d theatre or not. If not, I’ll get by because I’ll still be able to watch the “live” show when it airs on the East Coast. But I would much rather wait a few hours (while avoiding the internet) to see it on a big screen in 3d.
