    I booked my tickets today! I’ve got to say the map wasn’t massively helpful, but I’m just glad I’ve got tickets now. It will be nice to see a huge group of whovians, not a common site where I live.
    Cant wait 🙂

    I’ve just booked my tickets for tdotd in 3d at the cinema in bluewater shopping center. I got fantastic seats. I thought it would be nearly sold out but only about 20 seats had been sold so far.

    I hope it fills up a bit more, I want the atmosphere inside to be electric on the night.
