At first there was a seed. This seed was a tiny little idea in the mind of one Shefali A. While all other Whovian’s in India thought, “Damn it, not only is BBC Entertainment cancelled in India, but I’m sure the 3D special won’t release in the theaters either.” and started wondering about what torrent to get, this fantastic girl, in the middle of hot and sweaty Mumbai sat down and whispered,
I really really want them to release an imax version here…. maybe we can request it….
The seed grew, and took root, and became what I’m going to refer as the great Doctor Who 50th Anniversary 3D Initiative India.
Phew, that was a mouthful.
What exactly are we trying to achieve here ? If you are a Whovian in India, we’re going to try to make your dreams (well at least the one you’ve been having since the 7th Series Finale) come true !!
We are going to approach the manager in of a theater in Mumbai and convince him to screen the 50th Anniversary Special just for a day in a theater near you. But, for that to happen, we’re first going to need all the fans to come out in support. We will need to prove to the theater manager, that his theater is not going to be empty on this one day, the 24th of November, 2013. And for that, in typical Whovian style, we take a leaf from The Doctor’s (or in this case Clara’s book). No protests, no marches, nothing. All you need to do to show your solidarity, is fill in one single form.
This one actually :: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary 3D Initiative, India
Elsewhere in India…
No matter if you’re not from Mumbai. Fill in your name, email, city and state in the form above. Also mention clearly on the form whether you’re willing to help out with the leg work. In this case, leg work would mean speaking to theater managers in your area about the 3D screening if you have enough Whovians willing to attend the show. Once a city is reaching the 50 participants mark, I will email the people who have opted to help out in this, and they will coordinate with the rest of you, talk to the managers and **fingers crossed** set up a show time.
All you need to do this time, is share the link to this form, or this blog, and tag in all your fellow Whovian friends or family. The more entries we get in the form, the more likely it is that your favorite show will be aired in all its 3D goodness in a theater close to you.
In the words of 9th (or maybe the 10th, depending on which of the many theories floating about that you support currently)
You were fantastic… and you know what…. so was I
