Yesterday Doctor Who Magazine, Steven Moffat, Ingrid Oliver and a worldwide community of fans unite to beat the self isolation blues with The Day of the Doctor. Today Russell T. Davies decided he could not be out done by his successor and will be joining Twitter for a live tweeting as he and fans rewatch of Rose on the 26th March at 7pm GMT.
The 26th March is an appropriate date since it is the 15th anniversary since Rose first aired and brought Doctor Who back into our lives. Led by by showrunner Russell T. Davies, starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper, the reboot was a stunning success.
The global re-watch of Doctor who started via an idea from Doctor Who Magazine’s Emily Cook who scheduled a live tweet-along of The Day of the Doctor to help keep fans’ spirits up as we self isolate or social distance ourselves to help slow the spread of Covid-19. Soon the idea snowballed, with Steven Moffat, Ingrid Oliver (Osgood) and Dan Starkey (Strax) signing up to the fun alongside a huge community of fans around the world.
And also not to be out done, Russell T. Davies will be writing bonus material for the event. Let’s join together again and celebrate our love for Doctor Who
