Tweets Of The Week

The return of Doctor Who to the tellybox can mean only one thing – a Twitter explosion every Saturday night akin to the entire population of the UK sticking their heads out of the window and shouting at the top of their lungs. This week’s cry was a resounding “Blimey, that was a bit good.” And, “By jove, how on Earth did they keep that secret.”

Good work, Auntie Beeb. But it also proves something about the nature of secrets in this all-digital, all-information, all-instant age – it is possible to keep a secret after all. Albeit not if you follow the official Doctor Who Twitter feed that mentioned a certain character’s appearance they second they popped up on screen. Those poor time shifters/everyone in the world outside the UK, eh?

@ steven_moffat Doctor Who: heartfelt thanks to all the journalists, bloggers, and forum members who kept our little secret for tonight. You are the best!

And also, because we found this taste into the Twitter life of Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat funny:

@ steven_moffat It's a PROVISIONAL call for my head!! RT @aleczandah : If Asylum of the Daleks is bad it is time for @steven_moffat to GO. #DoctorWho

@ radiomaru I feel like sp vol 1 suffers now because the movie covers it almost verbatim and is so much bigger and more exciting. Book is still good ;o;
