    Definitely going to my Cineworld to see this! I actually doubt there will be anyone disturbing this so I am confident on this one and also if the 3D will be any good and ANOTHER also if at the cinemas they make it more of an event!

    Talking to the other fans would be good, but I am not confident enough to walk up to someone and I ask “Hey, so are you a big Whovian?”. Lol.
