After the 50th aired, there was an “after-party” show.
I haven’t found a link to the whole thing, but here’s a clip where they tried to talk to One Direction live:
For what reason they wanted to talk to them, I have no idea. But this was terrible. I have to give credit where credit was due – Matt Smith fielded a horrible question quite wonderfully. Aside from them (the show-runners themselves) just not knowing enough to give up, we were also subjected to one of the boys readjusting himself on camera. Seriously? Poor Steven Moffat had his head in his hands. He looked horrified, and rightly so.
On a side note, I’m rather impressed to see that Matt Smith shares my affection for crazy socks.
There were a number of technical glitches during the show, some more glaring than others. All in all, some of it was pretty painful to watch. At the same time, it was nice to see some former Doctors and all of those companions. I understand there’s a link where you can watch it if you’re in the UK (I’m not) so that’s an option for you if you’d like to try.
Oh, and I’ve seen a few other reviews of the show… and mine is really nice in comparison.
