09 Feb / #DoctorWho
Well, beam me up Scotty! The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular is almost in town. Only 5 more days and in lieu of celebrating Valentine the Saint we’ll be flying up to Auckland for a VIP pass introduction to the Doctor.
Full details of the night have just been forwarded, and the night broken down into hour-long segments.
For the first hour we can arrive, check-in with tickets and photo ID, and receive in return a laminate VIP pass and a bag of merchandise.
We then move through into the main area for some cocktails (or mocktails in my case) and some canapes. For an hour. Really? Okay, okay. I’ll ‘socialise’ for an hour. I feel dirty just thinking about it. Or awkward.
Then we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close to the talent who bring Doctor Who to life, hosted by comedian and huge Whovian, Rob Lloyd.
Fine, good. Sounds nice.
You will hear from some of the Creative and Production team behind both the TV show and Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular live show including Orchestrator and Conductor, Ben Foster.
Great, great. I’m sure they’ll be interesting and everything.
Finally, fifth Doctor Peter Davison will take to the stage for an exciting Q&A.
OMG. OMG. OMG. OMFG!!!
I feel like a teenager.
Apparently, later we get a sneak preview of the full dress rehearsal. I’m sure that will be good too.
Oh, and last of all there’s some sort of show on Sunday. We may attend.
