DOCTOR WHO Portroids from Comic-Con 2011!!!

As a huge fan of DOCTOR WHO, past and particularly present, it was a real honor at this year's Comic-Con (2011) that BBC America allowed me access to the press room to take portroids (Polaroid portraits, for the uninitiated).

The show returns with new episodes on BBC America on August 27, 2011. Until then, let these few photos from SDCC give you a fix of everyone's favorite Time Lord and his companion (if you click the photos, they are bigger on the inside):

Matt Smith (The Doctor, 11th)

Karen Gillan (Amy Pond, companion)

Also in the press room was DOCTOR WHO writer and creator of BBC's BEING HUMAN, Toby Whithouse:

Additional DOCTOR WHO related portroids from (or in connection to) Comic-Con:

From the DOCTOR WHO spin-off TORCHWOOD (now on Starz) on which he plays Capt. Jack Harkness (who originated on DOCTOR WHO), John Barrowman.

While at Comic-Con, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan took part in a live Nerdist podcast (the audio is available now on http://nerdist.com/). After the show they handed out TARDIS-wrapped burritos to the audience. Burritos are cool.

Here are portroids (taken in prior years at SF Sketchfest) of the Nerdist podcast team:

Matt Mira

See all you DOCTOR WHO fans on August 27, 2011!!
