Doctor Who Season 8 Premiere on Tumblr | Above gifset source (x)
Doctor Who has one of the biggest and most highly engaged fandoms on Tumblr, and this weekend they were out in full force again for the 8th season premiere of the show since its reboot; this season featuring a new Doctor, redecorated TARDIS, and the redone show opening seen above, currently the most popular Doctor Who related post on Tumblr.
From Friday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 24th, 59.5k posts were made about Doctor Who by a community of 796.4k Tumblr users, earning 3.6 million notes. That’s an average of 61 notes per post, putting a single weekend of Doctor Who on par with a month’s worth of posts from the science community.
Gifsets are popular in Tumblr fandom for their ability to replay small moments that lend greater significance to characters and moments in a series that are easy to miss during a show’s initial run. The official Doctor Who Tumblr understands this about their audience and uses a lot of gifsets in their posts.
Very cleverly done.
ICYMI: INTRUDERS premiere episode re-airs at 11/10c tonight, August 27th, on bbcamerica.
BBC America’s Earth Night returns with two brand new series- Superhuman Animals at 9/8c and Human Planet at 10/9c.
Our human senses are pretty incredible – but we only see, hear and smell a tiny fraction of what’s out there. There is a hidden world that animals across the globe can experience. Imagine if you could ‘see’ with sound, or smell your food from miles away.
In Superhuman Animals, Biologist Patrick Aryee and Physicist Helen Czerski take you beyond the limits of human perception to explore the extraordinary and surprising world of animal senses.
Following the footsteps of Planet Earth and Life, Human Planet is an epic and breathtaking eight-part series about the amazing, complex, profound and sometimes challenging relationships between humankind and nature.
We’ll see you there!
