So! Partial news on my epic adventure of proportions.

I went to Gloucester, because they're currently filming the Doctor Who Christmas special there! A couple of my friends went on Sunday and they bloody saw David Tennant running around D: I joined them again yesterday and saw the TARDIS in a blanket. It wasn't quite the same! They're filming from like 5 pm to 4 am for the next couple of days, so lazenich and I are going back today and staying for the long haul. :)

They've put snow down and everything. The place looked lovely. Yesterday I offered a security guard some hot chocolate from my flask if he'd let us in, and he laughed and said not to tempt him. He still didn't let us in, though!

Wish us luck for today! David Morrissey is in this special and it's like HOMG BLACKPOOL so I really hope I get to see him, too. *sulks*

AND now I'm off to buy a rat cage and draw Doctor sodding Why.

Hey that means Tennant isn't leaving after all!
(Unless he regenerates at the end of the xmas special...?)

Tennant himself has said several times that he's in for the specials in 2009, so we have him for a while yet.

Mmmyeah. But that could be a cover story.

Ooooh! IF YOU SEE THEM TAKE PHOTOS OKAY? And also bring a big bag so you can kidnap Tennant and send him over here, ALRIGHT? ;) David Morrissey, too. I love them both, ahhh. I was really excited to hear that he's going to be in Who.

Good luck with epic adventure spotting cast members! I hope you have better luck than yesterday :D

I already took photos of some posters and VICTORIANA they have there, and the TARDIS in her condom blanket.

If I see David Tennant you'll hear my squeals from there, trust me.

Woah, I'm so jealous! But I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that you'll see both Davids. =)

David Morrissey? Really? That's cool! Too bad you didn't see Tennant running around (that boy runs around a LOT, doesn't he?), but I hope you do see him today. (If so, pictures please? That is, if they let you and such.) So very jealous of my UK friends. Nobody over here even knows what Doctor Who is--at least not in the mainstream.

OMG, I literally key smashed when you said Morrissey was gonna be there!!! Too bad he wasn't in Runaway Bride, then it'd be, like, BLACKPOOL REUNION Y'ALL!! XD

Bet you're glad I strong-armed you into watching it now, aren't you! :P

Immensely!! I DO thank you for that! He (Morrissey) stood like two feet away from me when they were doing some running scene. I have some *awesome* videos to show tomorrow (it's 3 AM here, we JUST got in, and I'm ready for bed!)

(Speaking of, have you ever seen the Blackpool spin off? I only just heard about it, and I'm intrigued...)

OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! LUCKY!! :O What about DT? Any close encounters with that tall slice of sex incarnate? :lives vicariously through your Britishness:

Spin-off, or the American version? Cause I never heard of a spin off, but the American version was awful. I like to pretend it never existed.

(seriously, it got canceled after 2 eps)

Maybe it is the American version - it's set in Vegas, but I thought it had Morrissey as its lead. Which, while Ripley Holden was awesome, I don't think can save the whole show.

Tennant and Morressey (and some lady) were filming a scene about 20 feet away or so, at one point Tennant looked up and gave us all a huge smile and a wave. I'll get pics up when I get home. :D

Huh. What was it called? Maybe I'll check it out. Yeah, as awesome as all the characters are, I'd be kidding myself if I said I watched the show for anything other than David Tennant. ^_^;
