The ABC has announced a brand new panel show to accompany Doctor Who on Sunday nights – and Australian fans are invited to join in the fun!
To be broadcast following each episode of Series 10, Whovians will see Doctor Who enthusiast Rove McManus and his team of superfans dissect the world of our favourite Time Lord. As well as unpacking the most recent episode, the team will also go back in time to analyse, critique and unravel the mysteries of the series.
Rove will be joined by other self-confessed Doctor Who superfans Tegan Higginbotham, Adam Richard and Steven ‘Bajo’ O’Donnell, as well as a roster of celebrity guests.
“I’ve been a fan of Doctor Who for as long as I can remember, so you can imagine how pleased I am to be hosting a show about it,” said McManus. “Whether it be the classic era that dates back over fifty years, or the modern series that has created its own decade-long legacy, it’ll be nice to have the opportunity to talk about my favourite TV show with like-minded individuals and be paid to completely geek out. You might say I’m so excited that I too feel like I have two hearts beating in my chest – and yes, it’s references like that which prove I’m the right guy for the job.”
Whovians will be filmed in front of a live studio audience in Sydney and broadcast as live on Sundays at 8.30pm on ABC2, starting on Sunday 16 April. To be part of the studio audience, email firstname.lastname@example.org
