Guess we won’t be going to Whoniverse after all…

ultramissdivine78:

Goddammit! I’m so pissed off! Ticket prices for Whoniverse have just been announced and they’re completely outrageous! $950 for Gold, $650 for Silver, either of which is required for photo opportunities and autographs. Completely unaffordable to the average person, and now I have to break the news to my young son that he won’t get to meet Matt Smith after all :(….

I understand that it costs a shitload to bring them here, but this is seriously unfair to the real fans who aren’t made of money.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK…

 

I wanted to surprise my little sister with a ticket, and an opportunity to meet Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor, who just happens to be her fave doctor at the moment. (Eleventh Doctor haters, be easy - my sister is 10 and is discovering Doctor Who on her own time, and at the moment, she has only really seen episodes with Matt Smith. Episodes with Tennant, Eccleston and all the classic doctors will be watched, but only when she feels ready to watch them).

Like ultramissdivine78, I now have to break it to her that it’s too expensive to see Matt Smith at the Whoniverse. It’s sad to see something like this become like this, with ticket prices excluding a large part of the fandom.

November 23rd 1963: Doctor Who debuts

On this day in 1963, the first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast by the BBC. The original series starred William Hartnell as the protagonist known only as ‘the Doctor’, a Time Lord who travels through time in his blue police telephone box called the TARDIS with his companions. Since Hartnell, there have been 10 other actors who have played the iconic role, the current being Matt Smith. Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction drama in the world. It remains an immensely popular show, and an integral part of British culture. Today at 7.50pm on BBC One a 50th anniversary special will air.

Happy 50th Anniversary Doctor Who.
