Probably not. The British Viewing Public would probably skin the BBC alive, if Comicon got a trailer before the Brits got one.

Americans got a trailer for End of Time and Series 6 before we did.

Really? Were there no death threats?

A country really ought to get their own Trailers before or at the same time as everyone else, IMHO, and I can imagine that would anger a viewing public who pays a license fee to make the shows.

There was some complaining, of course-- it wouldn't be a fandom if there weren't-- but the trailers release worldwide pretty quickly after debuting at Comic-Con, so most people are too busy oohing and ahhing to care.

You couldn't possibly overestimate how much pointless Doctor Who trivia is stored in my head.

Us Brits were excited enough to see a shitty cam copy online. There was a huge buzz back then for End of Time, which is funny looking back. It was recently voted the worst Doctor Who story on a forum I visit.

The End of Time trailer wasn't really anything significant anyway. Mostly stock footage, Tennant walking among the flames in Voyage of the Damned and reaction shots of Donna and Wilf from various S4 episodes.

You sure? I remember it being entirely EoT footage, with John Simm's "My name.. is The Master!" getting an applause from the audience.

The Comic-Con "The End of Time Trailer" is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcQcaucYOc0. Some of it may be old/stock footage, but there's plenty of new stuff too.

Just looked it up on YouTube, (EDIT: and now it's just been posted above) and turns out you are right. It is reaction shots of the cast of The End of Time with narration from Timothy Dalton, and I guess I mixed the shot of Tennant with an explosion behind him from when the Master was attacking him with his Sith lightning attack with the Voyages of the Damned scene. My bad.

They get funding all around the world. Dunno how much though. Or if law even says they have to make all kinds of stuff for British people:eek:

Next they'll start shooting everything in Kenya, and profit.

Entertainment Weekly has a Q&A with Moffat from Comic-Con: link.

On the length of the anniversary special:
Quote:

What is the format of the 50th anniversary special? Is it movie-length?
It’s a special episode. I think you could call it movie-length, yeah. I mean, I’m saying that with a slight hint of vagueness because I don’t know the finished running time. [Laughs] It’s certainly well over an hour.

Interesting interview.

Now I'm curious at which point Matt originally wanted to leave, since Moffat says he has stayed longer than he intended.

And really, Moffat? You're still writing your Sherlock script? Jeez.

I can imagine it being hard to write a character like sherlock. You know he has to be extra perfect beause the fans will bitch about anything.
