Coming Soon: A Bunch Of Cool People Talking About “Doctor Who”

by on August 3, 2011

As we count the days to the next new Doctor Who episode, BBC America has compiled three specials about the show to tide you over, and they include some very, very familiar faces. VERY familiar.

Yeah, him.

Our Fearless Leader Chris Hardwick is among the celebrity Doctor Who fams featured on the three specials, Doctor Who: Best of the Doctor (August 13th, 9 pm ET), Doctor Who: Best of the Monsters (August 20th, 9 pm ET), and Doctor Who: Best of the Companions, which will air on August 27th after the half-series debut, “Let’s Kill Hitler,” airs at 9 pm ET. You’d expect Chris to be on the show, what with his BBC America connection and the fact that there are few bigger Whovians anywhere. But he’s not alone: Among the people talking <em>Who</em> will be your ol’ pal Alison Haislip, celebrated Cake Boss impersonator Paul F. Tompkins, 30 Rock‘s Scott Adsit, Amanda Palmer, Reggie Watts, Natalie Morales (White Collar, Lucy the Snakehole Lounge bartender on Parks and Recreation), Eugene Mirman, Wired senior editor Adam Rogers, former Philadelphia Eagles defensive end and brand-new ESPN football analyst Hugh Douglas, and Scott Ian from Anthrax… oh, and Mark Sheppard, too.

Here’s a taste of it, with Alison, Scott, Reggie, and Chris talking about the Silence:
