Please don't take or hotlink! (btw this is not my best shot of Karen but she looks so cute in it!)

OMFG.


The Doctor Who Prom was bloody amazing! I don't have much time right now to elaborate as I have to leave again in about 8 hours for tomorrow's (well technically today's) Prom, but in short: There was adorable, adorable Matt Smith both as the Doctor and later on as host. Karen Gillan was gorgeous as ever. And Arthur Darvill is so cute irl <3 <3 <3 There were vampires, Daleks, Jadoon, Cybermen, Silurians & Sontarans. A compilation of songs from S5 where the Vincent van Gogh bit was overwhelmingly beautiful. There was an amazing montage of all past regenerations (the cheering when Ten came on was insane). They performed Gallifrey: Our Childhood, Our Home as well as Vale Decem (my two favourite Who scores) and everything was just wow. I've got a few hundred pictures from it all (I was standing second row from the front) so I'll make a more proper post tomorrow. I seriously can't wait to see and hear it all again!

They really are. At one point Karen was elbowing Arthur today and then realised she did it a bit too hard and burst into laughter, they're just so cute <3

Which episode? I didn't like this season very much (though the proms made me like it more!) but I have to admit the last 4 episodes were pretty good (especially the Vincent van Gogh episode; heartbreaking!)

Ooooh my god. That sounds like my dream, jesus! And all three of them look amazing.
I just got the 3 DW soundtracks that are out now and listened to 'Gallifrey: Our Childhood, Our Home' and it moved me so much. To hear it in person...you lucky girl!

They did look absolutely fab indeed.

Isn't that piece gorgeous?? I think it might be my favourite song from a score of all time. I played it on repeat for months a while ago... I was SO happy they included that and didn't just do music from S5 :D

I'm sure there'll be something awesome with the Doctor Who actors when you're here, they're always doing promotional and other things ;)

I have no idea what the Doctor Who Prom is but I want to know! And I want to hug all three of them.

The BBC Proms are classical concerts at the Royal Albert Hall from July to September each year. The Doctor Who Proms are part of the family Proms to get children interested in classical music. They perform music from both the show as well as classical favourites ;) Anyway I made a proper, long update now here (http://canadian-turtle.livejournal.com/266643.html)

I just read your recap and left you a raving review of how grateful I was you went through all the trouble.
How often do you get to see Matt Smith's tongue, anyways? ;-)

Haha not nearly enough! (one of the things I miss most about Ten: he was always licking stuff!)
