Last day of SDCC, still had a few gems to bring us, and my favorite show was featured on this day.
DISCLAIMER: I don’t own any of the videos, they rightfully belong to the studios that released them or other youtubers!
Day three brought a lot of panels and a lot of trailers. All trailers I’ve found I’ve listed here. Important news from the panels I’ve also listed.
On to day two, I will tell all the information I found on the panels that are interesting to me and some trailers that were released.
A year has passed since my last SDCC post. This year, once again I wasn’t able to go to San Diego and attend the big convention. Like last year, I will list all the things I found interesting by following the coverage online. I will split the info up into the four days of the convention since there is quite a lot of info that was shared on each day.
$Every geek knows that one weekend in the summer is the most important weekend to spend online, San Diego Comic Con weekend. Every year, I think of making the big trip to San Diego but up till now I haven’t done it yet (It’s still on my bucket list). This weekend I’ve spent many hours watching actor/ studio panels and trailers that have been released especially for SDCC.
Back in 2008, I was fortunate enough to see Midsummer Night’s Dream live in Stratford-upon-Avon. When I say fortune I mean the RSC was playing three Shakespeare plays at the same time and I traveled to there to see Hamlet with David Tennant.
Last summer when I read that Russel T. Davies was creating a version of the play for BBC and that there were a lot of known British actors in it, I almost couldn’t wait for it to be shown on TV. The wait began… I was hoping that they would show it soon after the celebration of 400 years Shakespeare but still one month of waiting had to be done.
Yesterday evening the announcement was made that Steven Moffat is stepping down as Doctor Who showrunner. A few weeks back there already was a message in the press that he was looking for a replacement. I already expressed at that time that I would be missing him as showrunner and writer of the show.
The long awaited Sherlock special, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have been teasing us, fans, with pictures of this special ever since they were recording it. BBC wasn’t even better showing the first picture approximately a year ago. We all saw the moustache on John and the sleeked back hair – the moustache yelling oh no once again the moustache is back.
I went to see the screening of the episode in the cinema with my fellow sherlock fan friends. In the cinema there was a little clip before the show in which Steven Moffat gives us the tour of the Victorian rooms of Sherlock and after the show there was Mark Gatiss interviewing the different actors on the show about their Sherlock experiences.
The following is the story, so of course SPOILERS!
Watching the roller coaster of a season that was the 9th season of Doctor Who. Really I do mean rollercoaster, there were ups and downs, there was the departure of a companion, we got to know Ashildr and her alter ego Lady Me. And just generally the writing got better, the Toby Whithouse episode in which a deaf signing actress was kinda the star. We saw the return of Missy, that Michelle Gomez was cast as her can’t be denied as being one of the best casting choices ever! Ingrid Oliver as double and maybe even triple Osgood – the one character all Whovians see themselves being.
