Important Doctor Who Tumblr alert here - this is a note from Fathom Events about safety and security for the US Doctor Who cinema screenings on 11/25.
Fathom added this notice about safety for the US Doctor Who screenings on 11/25:
Doctor Who Fans: We want you to have a fun on 11/25 – but safety is paramount. Please note that attending the event in costume is fine; however, masks, elaborate or face-concealing make up, fake weapons, tools, accessories (like sonic screwdrivers) and other related memorabilia as well as any costumes that conceal what you are carrying, your natural body shape or face are strictly prohibited.
Please take note. We’d hate to hear about any of you losing your sonic screwdrivers or costumes.
Contact your cinema or FathomEvents if you have any additional questions.
Have fun and be safe, Whovians!
I know security and all that and I know some bad shit has happened, but I’m glad I live in a country where I don’t have to worry that my usual baggy jeans and baggy jumper with a big coat because winter would get me banned from a cinema. Or a plastic toy. Wow.
I have had to not take my bags into one screening in my entire life - And that was a preview Screening of Serenity at the Edinburgh Fringe. I understand it there - it was a preview screening months in advance and they don’t want cam rips online but here - The episode WILL be online on the internet for 2 days by the time this screening is happening.
like chewing 5 gum
This is the fifth time I’ve seen this post on my dash. Please if any of you people have any shed of decency please tag your post with trigger warnings. I may not be the “meat is murder” type of vegan but it’s still inconsiderate to not tag provocative things. It’s also disrespectful to people whose religion forbids them to consume pork or meat.

trigger warning: weenie showers
The religious angle is stupid - This person does not consume any meat. I don’t think there exists a religion in the world which fobids you from being hit in the face by pork products.
Hell there is more of a chance that a religion has existed which encourages it. If there doesn’t exist one - I propose Pieology. (Because of the classic pie in the face gag.)
Britain, ladies and gentlemen - where this man was actually elected to stand as a Member of the European Parliament.
And just in case you were unfamiliar with Nick Griffin, he is the leader of the British National Party (BNP): a racist, discriminatory and vile political party who want to expel immigrants, rule out the Islamic faith in Britain and generally anyone who doesn’t conform to their standards. Adolf Hitler and the Aryan race, anyone?
What makes this all worse is the fact this tweet is in reference to Nigella Lawson being attacked in public by her husband, in which he grabbed her by the throat in front of a busy restaurant.
Absolutely sickening. Yet again embarrassed to be part of a country who holds people who actually follow this man and value his opinion.
It does take a special someone, to think that a woman being attacked makes for a good joke.
On your next trip to the middle east - please stand next to the suicide bomber WHILE HE IS BLOWING UP!
