Things We Saw Today: Doctor Who Watch-Alongs? Yes Please!

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is staying at home. Luckily for us, a variety of creators, actors, and writers are making the most of the quarantine by hosting watch-alongs of beloved films and episodes of television. Naturally, one of the most beloved sci-fi fandoms, Doctor Who, is leading the charge with an all-star line-up of legends not only tweeting along but giving us all new content.

Writer/producer Emily Cook has been putting together these watch-alongs and raising money for the COVID-19 Film and TV Emergency Relief Fund, which helps support the creative community which has been devastated by the pandemic.

Cook wrote on the fundraising page, “In addition, I am producing some new pieces of Doctor Who content with some of the show’s former writers – including Steven Moffat and Russell T Davies – and actors to complement the episodes we are rewatching together. This content is being home-produced, created remotely as we’re all self-isolating and it’s available online for all fans to enjoy!”

Today’s screening, “The Doctor’s Wife”, featured all new content and messages from Arthur Darvill, written by Neil Gaiman!

Co-stars like Suranne Jones and Michael Sheen have also tweeted messages of love and support:
