BBC to Host Live Doctor Who Pre-Show

BBC America has partnered with Nerdist Industries to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who with the first-ever live simulcast pre-show from the YouTube Space Los Angeles.

Hosted by Veronica Belmont, co-host of the science fiction and fantasy YouTube show, podcast and book club “The Sword and Laser,” the Doctor Who 50th Live Pre-Show will air Saturday on BBC America and stream to audiences globally on BBC America’s YouTube channel just prior to the premiere of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary special “Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor.”

As the world awaits the global simulcast of the anniversary special, the pre-show will feature a live curation of fan-created content and chats with special guests.

Following the anniversary special, BBC America’s YouTube channel will host a YouTube-exclusive post-show.
